Sets of Kitchen Knives

Hands up all you daft buggers who own sets of ‘chef’s knives’. In wooden blocks or hanging on magnets. Twenty-three mild steel knives you have to sharpen if you so much as look at them… Twenty-three silent testaments to your gullibility. Twenty-three knives of which you use probably none.

My late unlamented was a chef by profession (his cooking being one of the reasons I put up with his presence for so long). He used three knives – and one of them was solely for threatening people who wandered into the kitchen.

You need a big knife and a little one. That’s it
