    I bought a basic Cuisinart serrated tomato knife from Ross for like $10 over 10+ years ago and it still cuts through my fruits cleanly. I've never sharpened it, and never give it a thought when tossing it in the dishwasher either. One of the front poking tines snapped off years ago, but I can't find any reason to get rid or replace it. Some things just seem work.

    As for others has anyone tried the French peasant knife from lee valley ? looks like a good camping knife.

    I bought one today just to check it out. At the very least it'll make a usable line knife. Ill keep y'all posted when it arrives.

    Without thinking of the German/Brazil history, I always thought it was funny seeing the white handled Tramontinas with the German Steel. It's a cheap knife but the fact it was cheaper to ship the steel to Brazil then to make in Germany always gives me images of sweatshops. Unless that's just some kinda marketing gimmick...

    I have a Ikea Damascus VG10. It was a gift, but was 50$ new. Great great knife. Very shun like in the handle. Takes a great edge, and takes a beating. I actually have the whole set from this line. The only stainless kitchen knives i have, and I love them.

    dexter sani-safe line has to be one of the best values. 10" chefs for $30. last night i sharpened two of them with a don brand tri oil stone (hate these types), stropped on cardboard. got them both to pass the slice tomato without holding it test with see-thru thin slices.

    Victorianox are great, dexters makes good stainless as well.

    Tojiro may be best bang for the buck over shuns.

    Dexter Russel carbon 10 inch cook's knife. When they were widely available 10+ years ago they only cost $14. I still see them around for $40...easy to sharpen and a pretty thin blade, I probably burned through a little over a half dozen these in my career.
