Leslie was a little unwieldy with those knives. Great vid, tho!

I was very very pleased with the knife set i bought from the “Kitch N’ Wares” brand, bought on Amazon

Micha Kolumbus says:

Great picks! However I would mention Zwilling as an alternative (not instead) to Wusthof. In addition, I find that most people work dirty and lazy when it comes to taking care of their knives in the kitchen. Hence, wooden handles e.g. The Messermiester, Blackwood Ikon… ect) and top quality knives are not recommended if you work a lot in the kitchen, and the majority will be more than overwhelmed with the Wusthof Classic Ikon.
