I assume everyone here has lots of knives. How do y'all handle it when you have a number of knives you want? Do you get them all in different lengths (or a wide variety of lengths, at least) to have slightly different uses, or do you get an array of 240mm (or whatever) gyutos and pick whichever you feel like on a given day?
For example, right now, my "nice" knife is a 240mm K&S Tanaka blue2. I do love it - it's sharp, doesn't wedge, and the length works well because it's nimble enough to dice peppers and onions, while it's long enough to shred a pound of Brussels sprouts at once reasonably quickly. I've been drooling over Takedas for a few weeks now, and Dalmans both look beautiful and will (or at least seem like they should) straight-out stop onions from climbing the face. In this situation, would y'all get everything as 240mm gyutos and pick which you felt like on a given day, or get the Dalman as a 210 (for use on peppers and onions), Takeda as a 150mm petty, and keep using the Tanaka for Brussels sprouts? That would give a wide variety of options, but also means that if I decided I just liked using a 240mm gyuto, I only have the one.
Decisions suck, and you are all horrible influences and enablers.
