    Gesshin Ginga stainless chuka. No carbon steel blades for her... * shudder*... and she's used to using Chinese cleavers.

    A block of Calphalon classic for our counter. German steel made in china. Oh how I would like to replace it but granite counter use + finding one in the dishwasher every now and then keeps me from upgrading. I get my enjoyment from using the coarse Edge Pro stones on them. I bought an ITK bread knife thinking it could replace the Calphalon but frankly I don't want to see it get abused so it hides with my traveling roll of knives.

    The Shun classic was my wife's knife as well (though I use it once in a while). She is now using a Sakai Yusuke 210mm SS, thanks to BST!

    No mother-in-law knife here, but I do have a $10 china-made henckels in case my just-plain-mother ever comes by.

    I don't understand this. Where in the H E double Hockey Sticks do people get this idea? Chopping boards exist for a reason. This just makes me mad reading this.

    When we first got married, I caught my wife doing this with a shun 4" parer that I had just finished polishing a day or two ago. I was sufficiently upset about it that I brought her to a cutlery store and found a knife that she liked, so she'd stop messing with mine. Obviously, being newly wed and not wanting the gates to heaven close, I didn't freak out. I calmly explained to her how much the knives meant to me, and made a comparison that it would be like me dropping her guitars on a concrete floor. She hasn't done it since, which I very much appreciate.

    I don't let guests use my knives, they are too sharp. The last guest that used my knives nearly cut a finger off. I warned them "Careful, that knife is probably a lot sharper than you are used to." They decided to test the sharpness on their finger...but they did it wrong and cut most of the way to the bone. I have a beat up 6" cutco santoku I let guests use
