Greetings, KKF! I have been trolling the internet about kitchen knives these past few weeks, and have routinely found myself coming back to this site from various searches, so decided to gain a direct feed into this fountain of knowledge. I feel like Johnny #5! I feel... I feel so alive! I have such an awful set of knives right now... it is Chicago Cutlery, my sharpener is sad... I will fix these things though! Thanks to you and my friend who first wet my appetite for good kitchen knives.
