    Great knives, Blazer! My MIL likes Henckels, but I don't know the series. They're not cheap, though, as she gets *a* knife for Christmas each year.

    OK, who else want's to step up? PC? Mike? Okie?

    Yep, exactly. I figure after Laura, Blazer and I had our litle show-n-tell, it's only fair. Especially since the one who started the thread hasn't come though. (hint, hint)

    I have that same exact paring knife (my fave), I also have that santoku. I'm kinda partial to Henckels 4 star (vier stierne)

    Forschner/victorinox are IMHO the most underrated knives on the market.

    I have a bunch of pix to upload, and I will also try to find time to shoot some pix of my knives soon.

    Thanks for the kind words as to my cutlery. I have found that I much prefer the Santoku style to the chef's style knife. I use the Forschner more than the Wusthof as I like the handle more due to the arch in it. One day I may have to pick up a Wusthof from one of their other series that has an arched handle. I bought the one pictured above in a special deal that came with the Santoku sharpener.

    Also not pictured above, I bought a set of Wusthof steak knives and like them very much.

    I like the Santoku style, too. In fact, I regret not getting mine sooner. The shorter blade and flatter curve to it let me use more of the edge than I do on a standard chef's knife. Also, the blade feels more sturdy in my hand.

    As for handles, you bring up a valid point. It's very important to go with a comfortable handle. I like the D-R Sani-Safe handles, but a lot of people have told me they're too small for their hands. But for me, most knives feel too large or curves don't hit in the right spot.
