    What Knife did you keep?

    We all love getting that new Über blade. I want to know what blades you couldn't part with after the upgrade. I know some blades are easy to let go of, but what blades are still around the house? Mine is a Wusthof 3.5" paring knife. Just fits in my hand better than anything else I have.

    I was deciding between a 230 Nenox and a 230 Zwilling slicer - and sold the Nenox, kept the Zwilling. It's the ugliest knife I own after all kinds of experiments, but it's also the first 'real' knife I had (which makes it about 33 years old) and I just like the feel of it.

    Interesting thread. Now that I've seriously thinned and slightly reprofiled my little Sab parer I don't think I could be without it. The 270 KS gyuto will likely go with me to dirt. I don't have enough other "good" knives to provide a useful data point, though.

    Definitely my wusthof gourmet parer. bought it 3 years ago when I started my sophomore year in college; I've since upgraded, but I can't let that thing go. Great little knife.

    6 inch Henckles cheapo utility knife. Handle partially chewed by my dog when he was a puppy 5 years ago.

    Mine are a Wusthof 6 in. utility, my glestain gyuto and vintage sabatiers. I'll likely be adding my suisin IH's to that list as well.

    My Tojiro DP is the last knife I don't want to own that I don't use for brutal experimentation.
