I gotta get me one of those Japanese knives! :thumbsup: I was chopping last week with my knife and getting irritated about everything sticking to it. :tap:

My kids got me this chef's knife for Christmas one year. I THINK it was a pretty good brand - a Wustof maybe? But it's not serrated (or whatever you call the one listed in the quiz).

A Wusthof is a VERY good brand! That is what I own. None of mine have the hollow edge (it may be called something different but that's how I know it).

All my knives are the Wusthof Grand Prix II. I LOVE them!!!!!!!!

The Santuko I have wasn't very expensive, but it sits right beside my other 2 Chefs Knives. These 3 knives do 80% of all the work., and the Santuko does more than half of that. They're great knives.

I don't own a Santuko. I own 10" & 8" Chef's knives, I have a 9" bread knife, a 6" sandwich (all purpose) knife and three paring knives. All Wusthof... one paring knife is pink! :lolh: Yes, it is! :lolh: I have a pair of kitchen shears to match! :lolh:

I should have gotten 2 wrong because I guessed at 2 of the Baking terms.

9 out of 10...I guessed wrong about the glass measuring cup, as I thought some "bent" light refraction would be evident.

As to the knives...my sister swears by her Cutco set, while I prefer Buck, SOG, Remington, Gerber and Ek for those purposes. Oh, I might break down and use a Marble's...and for boning, nothing beats a Schrade Extreme Survival knife.

A good QOTD for recipes (he we should have one) might be; What is the most difficult recipe or cooking method you've tried or tried to master?

I'll stay away from Baking...that really isn't my forte.

But, I'll have to say 2 things.
One is mastering all the methods of making 'Classic Sauces'. Took me awhile to get to maybe 80%.
Two is mastering (which I haven't achieved as yet) the proper use of, and balance of Herbs and Spices with all my special dishes.

You are further along than I am... I have only mastered one of the Mother Sauces... Hollandaise.
