is it so wrong that i just reach into one of my knife drawers and just grab whatever ... its usually a wa-gyuto in the 210-270mm size
i suppose you're asking if it's wrong for you to rub it in
For international trips, I take a Kiwi santoku ($6) and Kuhn-Rikon parer w/ sheath ($10) in case the damn things get confiscated by customs. For domestic trips, I pack my Masahiro MV-series 210mm gyuto which has excellent edge retention and plenty of knuckle-clearance, and the Kuhn-Rikon parer.
3" Kershaw Leek straight edge folder. Only thing it sucks at is slicing big loaves of bread, and bread is better when you tear it apart anyways.
I keep a Tosagata Satsumabocho that I got from JWW years ago along with a Forschner 6" boning, a small serrated parer, and an ancient Lamson 10" chefs knife rolled up in a towel especially for those spur of the moment road trips.
And a Gerber Mk II, just in case.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
