  1. So, the Glestain Gyutou?

    My wife & I have stuck with the Victorinox Forschner for years. Is the $200 knife really that much of a step up? Can we continue to use the Chef’s Choice sharpener or will we have to do something special?

    • cs for CPK – We evaluated cutting ability, blade shape and sharpness, weight, and handle comfort to find the best chef’s knives. The Victorinox (formerly Victorinox Forschner) Fibrox 8-Inch Chef’s Knife (Model Number 40520) for $24.95 was our winner and for an electric knife sharpener we recommend the Chef’s Choice Model 130 Professional Sharpening Station, it is the Rolls-Royce of sharpeners, with spring-loaded blade guides that make sharpening foolproof. Hope this helps!

  3. Chris, i researched alot before purchasing my knives and was tempted to get the Victorinox but chose calphalon instead.I do enjoy my calphalon knives but i may purchase the chef choce sharpener. My question is,,,,How often do you use that sharpener? Do you use the tool that comes with the knives inbetween? And can you over use the chef sharpener TOO often and therefore ruin the knife? Thanks for your site, your mags and your shows,,,getting ready to watch your bloopers . Have a great day.

  5. Well, that really wasn’t a very good answer.Actually , all you did was say you did say was that this site guarantees the products that you endorse. You didn’t answer any of my questions. How often to use the sharpener? Can one OVERUSE the sharpener therefore ruin the knife? Do i still need to use the honing tool included in the set? Please answer my, in my opinion, very good questions. June Brougham

  7. Cleaning Stains on the Floor Parquet…

    Wooden parquet floors are able to make a room look elegant. However, this kind of beautiful floors can turn unsightly when we do the repainting of the room. Because it is quite possible, paint stains and stubborn stick. Actually, parquet floors easy to…

  8. I finally got a nice chef’s knife and had no clue how to keep it sharp. (When to use a sharpening steel, when a sharpener?) This is exactly the information I needed. Thank you.

  9. I am sure this post has touched all the internet viewers, its really really good piece of writing
    on building up new website.

  10. Good day! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m
    absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

  11. This article was good though I don’t truly understand, do you
    possess any additional information on this subject?
    Maybe you could recommend a few websites or books?

  12. I love your sharpener! The Victorinox Fibrox Chef knife weighs only 6.25 ounces, versus the 8.5 to 9.0 ounce weights that typify forged German knives, but the lighter weight feels comfortable and nimble, rather than flimsy. It’s absolutely the best knife for the money! http://www.victorinoxkitchenknives.com

  13. The serrated section close to the tip is quite aggressive and is designed to bite into the crust on the initial ‘push’ forwards.
    Generally, they are not too expensive, and even if you have to spend a little
    more than you want, take care of your ceramic knives
    and they will last you for years to come. Here are some aspects
    you have to keep in mind when purchasing steak knife
    sets.

  14. Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply placing the other person’s
    web site link on your page at proper place and other person will also do similar for you.
