Thread: why gyuto fever?

  1. #11
    There *is* an affliction that's worse. You could be buying multiples of the exact same knife. Some folks around here do that. Of course I ... uh... have no firsthand knowledge of who any of those poor souls might be.

    That could be practical, say, if you're a pro and really favour a certain knife, and so have a couple of them, with a spare always sharp and ready. Kind of like how tennis players have several of the same racquets and switch as soon as one gets dull - er, when the strings start to lose a smidgen of feel.

    It's just natural progression. First you build up your gyuto arsenal. Then you step back and say "I'm done", and start on pettys, parers, sujis, etc. Then you step back and say "I'm done withthose; time for more gyutos!" Lather, rinse, repeat!

    My answer.... Why the f*&k not! I have way more gyutos than I need and multiple vintage sab chefs in the 10 inch range and they all get used. It always brings a smile to my face to pick up a knife that I don't use often, or only use for special occasions, and that's enough for me. =)
