Thread: If you could only keep one kitchen knife which would you choose?

  1. #1

    If you could only keep one kitchen knife which would you choose?

    I know a lot of you have multiple gyuto's, sujis, pettys, santoku's, and yangis etc.

    If you could only keep one kitchen knife which would you pick over all the others and why would it be that knife.

    Whether its the performance or does it mean something special to you?

    For me its my 250 DT san mai mystery gyuto. Perfect length, edge retention,gets screaming sharp and great fit in my hand. It just feels more natural than any other knife.

    I would have to go with my vintage 10" Sabatier or the 240mm Hiro Hc. we have been through lots together.

    I'd say either my Sagaform Edge - cause it can take a real beating and it's no worry.
    Or my Gesshin Ginga 240 gyoto because of the performance.

    Probably DT ITK 270 because I would want a bigger knife if I had only one. With that said, the correct answer for this forum is my Martell 240 Gyuto

    I would go with my Carter 240 funayuki. It's taller than a suji, less tall than a "standard" gyuto and has an awesome grind.

    +1. Mine is Spicy White but I would probably go with one in Devin's mystery PM or Super Wear Resistant for the extra edge life, especially if I only had one knife.
