    Just ordered Kato -why?

    Something is definitely wrong with me I think ...

    Since joining this forum I've acquired 3 Ku Shigs, 2 Yusuke and I just ordered a 240 Kato Gyuto as a gift to self for my birthday.

    I'm a home cook and just resigned from my job!

    Maybe I really want to be a chef ...

    Happy Holidays All!!

    As a home cook with the knife bug I can feel you for sure. Been more of a custom guy lately, but my collection is more than a home cook can ever use and I still want more...

    Hi J!

    This is a common affliction amongst home cooks here on KKF. Enjoy the journey

    Another one goes to the rabbit hole
    It will just get worse once you get in the custom thing. Congrats on your purchase

    I can't say as I can see anything wrong with you, but just to be sure, order two gyuto's and call me in the morning.

    Have you started on pettys and paring knives yet? You really need at least a few of each.

    Just wait 'til you can't resist putting custom handles on them!

    I still think its easier doing this as a home cook. You don't really have to explain to anyone then, but explaining to your colleagues why your knife roll is a combined 3 months wages, while they rock on with their wusties and the like can be difficult..
