    First knife set

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to this site and I am looking into buying my first knife set for my first home. I have 7 different sets to choose from; kitchen aid, farberware, cuisinart, sabatier, Fred & friends, guy fieri, and cuisine de France. The reason I am picking from these is because I can get them for free. Any and all information would be helpful.

    Thank you,
    Alexander

    Do you have to get knives? The sets you've listed leave a lot to be desired. If you are planning to use this opportunity as a springboard into the world of performance cutlery I would do more research here to come up with better alternatives. If you are set on getting one of the sets then make the decision based on aesthetics. I would purchase the Sabatier because I like the way they look.

    Get the Sabatier set, sell it on ebay, and then ask here for advice on buying a really good knife

    In that case, they are worth every penny you will have paid for them.

    All kidding aside, you would be better off with two good knives, a chef's and a paring, than any of the sets you mention. That's why many of the replies suggest that you sell the set you get and use the proceeds to get those two good knives.
