    Hi there!

    Joining in from Bergen, Norway

    Joining to get wiser on all the brands and steels of the knife world.

    I've been looking for a new all-purpose knife for several months, but my head is filled with way too much information and not enough answers.

    I'm a home cook, and I really enjoy Japanese technique with great Norwegian products, like our amazing seafood, great cheese and tasty root vegetables and different types of cabbage. I'm also a big fan of Italian and French food, but the elegance and respect of Japanese cooking is really intriguing.

    As for knives I have one Victorinox regular chef knife and one Victorinox Santoku, so I'm in need of an upgrade. No sharpening skills either, so I am looking to start sharpening as well.

    Anyways, more about that stuff later, thanks for having me!

    Welcome, Martin.

    You will find a lot of knowledge on such mattters here. You may want to start a "which knife should I buy" thread by copying and pating the questionairre (found as a sticky in general/kitchen knife forum) into a new thread in the general/kitchen knife forum.

    Thanks, mate!
    We have a great selection on a website called Skarpekniver.
    I posted a "Which knife should i buy?" in the forums, but still no reply. Maybe it's in the wrong place.
