    I am trying to buy less knives and have ones that I can use for a few different things. The way my job works though, there aren't a whole lot of different types of knives I think I need, maybe a long suji but I'm not even sure I'd use it that much and I don't wanna buy knives that other people use more than me. Probably get another 210 petty so I can sharpen the one I have less. I have 4 gyutos at present and that is enough of a rotation for a while and 2 are carbon so they don't even need sharpened that much. I have 3 or 4 pettys that I keep at home and never use because a 210 is far better. Interesting to see everyone's choices

    @Johnny-
    Crazy kit! That Delbert Ealy gyuto is one purdy knife.
    Those itk bread knives are pretty useful, I suggested one to a coworker and now three of 'em own this knife before I got one lol.
    Again, awesome kit.

    Thanks. I still have some holes, mainly a short suji/gyuto to use as a line knife, a yanagi for butchering, skinning and portioning fish, and western style boning and butchering knives. At some point I will probably also upgrade my deba.

    And I know you are also waiting on a knife from Dave, correct?

    Nah, just rode it hard. It was my main knife 15 hours a day. That's after about 7 months. I've been favouring the Mizuno 240 lately so it's taking a break.

    Pretty much everything. Veggies, herbs, proteins, all my normal prep. I have butchered duck breast and short ribs with it.
