    Former Industry guy trying to catch up

    Good Evening Gents,

    Having been out of the business for a while a LOT of things have changed since I was a "line ape". Back then the factions were firmly divided between Wusthoff and Henckels. Nowadays the Industry has clearly gone Japanese.

    As I contemplate a (partial) return to the industry, and I'm having a blast teaching my girlfriend to cook for the first time in her life, I've got the itch for some new toys.

    I look forward to catching up and picking some of your brains on where I should spend money I don't have on some new steel that I probably don't really need.

    Cheers,
    Bogey

    Thanks guys,

    I've been highly active on a shooting forum for the past many years, so I know how pissy we get when a NOOB jumps right on and starts asking the "what is the best......" or "what should I buy?" questions right off the bat without giving any useful info to help them.

    Unfortunately that forum used the same format as this one, so the "search" function tends to suck.

    I'm plugging through as many older posts as I can in the hopes of answering my own questions. I've done a solid 50+ hours of online research at this point and I'm firmly in that zone where I'm finding more questions than answers.

    Stefan, I've run across your handles MANY times in my research, beautiful work sir.

    If searching for a new knife, I'd suggest trying a new post using the "which knife should I buy questionnaire."

    And Welcome!

    The bad news is there are so many choices. The good news is there are so many good choices. Slightly different in style, but few duds imho. You'll have to learn what you really like again.
