    Can a chef please name these knives and what their best use is for?

    Banned
    Bought these but find I only use the chefs knife. Just wondered what the other knives are for and what they are called.

    Thanks

    Maybe but I cant see how a knife could be any sharper than these. They are like scalpels :?

    I have a sabatier bread knife which is excellent. Sold the GLOBAL bread knife for £45 so pleased with that :thumbsup:

    :-D

    No 4 is a tomato knife! No kidding, I have same one:thumbsup:

    The one in the middle is a samurai sword.

    OOO nice Pink walls, I might try that

    My OH has a set- doesnt know what they do- all he does with em is manage to cut himself!! (I try to encourage him to use the knife a little higher up-you know he might just slit his throat:roll::roll:)

    They aint global by the way- just a £40 ebay buy but they are wickedly sharp all the same.
    As a point of interest- does anyone on her know of a decent knife sharpener? He has the steel one but is after a "professional"one for his birthday and I dont know anything about em. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks:thumbsup:

    You might want to buy him a nice spirit level as well :gift:LOL

    Ceramic steels are the way to go, or there is version that uses water & ceramic wheels which is recommended for use with Globals "minosharp ceramic water sharpener" (there are some on ebay if you cant find in the shops) is the one I know - expect to pay £20-£30 though, they're not cheap.....
