I've always been a Henckels girl; a few years ago I bought mum the exact set that is pictured below. It cost a fortune but I believe that a good set of knives is a must for any household especially when you loving cooking!
As much as I longed for it, I hadn’t planned on buying a set for myself until I got a pay rise (or bonus). However I have since been approached by some very special friends who have informed me that they had meant to surprise me with a set for my birthday/house warming/X'mas but decided it was better that I chose the set that I wanted.
I am still really uncomfortable with them spending so much (especially when I feel as though I have done nothing to deserve it), but I also know that they will do it despite my protests.
So...I need some help deciding. I know what the Henckel knives are like because I used them at Mum’s, but from watching TV I’ve been really interested in the Global range of knives. I’ve been told these knives are very well suited to Asian cooking and are great for slicing and dicing (which is an area that the Henckels could improve in). I’d greatly appreciate any feedback that anyone has to offer, alternatively in you have any other recommendations please let me know.
