Ok, I need some help.
Recently I got some comments from mother-in-law:
- You can see a calibre of a man at checking the state of kitchen knives in his house.
It was typical of mother-in-law venomous comment, but she caught me out.
Our set is old cheapie from the market but I've kept it in good nick over 10years by constantly sharpening them up.
After recent comments I tried to remedy situation but unfortunately however I try I just can't claim past glory of razor sharp knives. The metal base is just too thick to grind any angle to it.
My manliness points score is at all time low, coz my wife agreed about it. She said -Yes, a man takes care of these things so just deal with it.
So now is the time to unleash my old self into glory of manliness and get proper knives to shut old woman up. I want those bad boys plant fear and respect to those who use them.
Googled a bit and asked opinion of my wife. Seeing prices she insisted me visiting psychiater. Woman don't know this is not laughing matter for me so I will get them nonetheless.
So here I ask knife aficionados, what's your experience and recommendation of either Wüsthof (Euro style/geometry) vs Tojiro (Japanese wonder) ?
Looking into ease of maintenance (sharpness) and longevity as price tag must justify it and serve us good.
