As the title suggests, i want to turf the 7 blade knife block from harris scarfe that we have and become a 3 knife kitchen. looking to outlay decent cash for well built blades that will last 20 years, if not a lifetime, including manual sharpening and care. looking to spend a decent amount for decent product but money is NOT just an object. so OCAU, where do i start? i'm gonna get a huge boner for good japanese or german stuff. dont care about showoff factor, just good quality and longevity. thinking something like cook's knife, santoku, and small utility? any advice or stuff welcomed.
