    Howdy

    Hello all,

    I recently started cooking professionally and decided to get my own decent knife. I did a lot of reading on this site and figured it was time to join.

    I'm in the suburbs of Milwaukee. At work I do mostly garde-manger prep; not a ton of knife work on the line, mostly bread-type stuff at the app station. At home I do a lot more complicated, varied, traditional cooking. I went with the MAC Pro 8" gyuto which so far is pretty much perfect at work - a paring knife comes in handy occasionally, but really I had all the knives I strictly needed at that point.

    Then I got the stones to care for my knife, and learned to sharpen properly, and kept reading about steel, and decided I'd really like a nakiri, and that vintage NOS Sabatier is just too great to pass up because they'll be gone someday, and I ought to get something in a traditional single bevel, good to know how to use those, and since I had learned all this I could pick out good knives for people as Christmas presents, and since I wanted all these knives I had seen everyone should get me knives too, and I seem to remember reading something here about a rabbit hole? So I went from being a cook who needed a knife to being a cook and also a knife enthusiast.

    Moooza -- I'm interested in *all the knives*
