    Kitchen knives

    Someone recommended Zwilling. Saying there’s a lot of benefits using this brand of knives.

    My son bought a Victorinox knife, cost USD50, it was really good. So easy to use that now I want to have better kitchen knives too!

    My sister is using a very lowly priced knife, I think the brand name is Profine or something, she bought it at a Pasar Malam more than 20 years ago. It was really good but she couldn’t find it in the pasar malam anymore. That sounds like a really good value for money knife.

    Any cheap and good knives?

    I have sought, bought and used expensive knives i.e. Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Kyocera Ceramic, Global Yoshikin. At the end of it all, it is about how the knives are used and maintained. All knives will dull with usage if not periodically honed and polished.

    With all my (I consider them to be) 'expensive' knives, I still go for my favourite RM20.00 pasar malam which I acquired more than 20 years ago. And it is as sharp as the day I got it. Maintenance is my passion.

    Talking about kitchen knives, some are very expensive but of very good quality but they are only use occasionally.

    In the old days, we used to send the ones most use daily to have them sharpened. Cost about AUD$5-6 each.

    But in recent years, Thailand produces light & sharp kitchen knife at only AUD$3.95 which is good for 1 or 2 months.

    Instead of sharpening them, you just throw them away.
