This one's inspired by DitmasPork's thread here about Japanese knives. I'll start. First three and also last three so far, until I start a foray into high-grade western knives: 1. Messermeister Meridian chef's knife. My first high-quality kitchen knife. 2. F-Dick 1905 paring knife. My current paring knife to this day. 3. Not a knife: The infamous "DICK POLISH" honing-rod.
