    Denton wanted a kitchen knife thread.

    So it probably no secret that I prefer old carbon steel knives so that where we will start. There is an exception to my Carbon steel rule and that's the Victorinox line up of knives. This is a pretty good video to help you figure out what you should be looking for for the kitchen and butcher table.

    I have some old stuff. Wood handles the steel holds an edge. But IMO wood plain sucks as a handle. Good modern SS with molded Handles are hard to beat.

    Im still in carbon steel wood camp. I know folks are hooked on the new materials but to me the wood has beauty and character. I have yet to get sick from my wood handle knives from harboring bacteria. I have a few fantastic plastic but it's like holding a Glock compared to 1911-A1

    So it comes down to how much care you want to put into you knives. Plastic fantastic = no care needed just throw it in a sink full of water and let the crud soak off or take care of the wood and the carbon steel blade. Its all preference nothing wrong with either approach.

    Who is still abusing these bad boys?
    My Mom got a set in the early 90s and we are still beating shit out of some them.
    She got pissed that I tested a few the same way they did on tv like cutting soup cans, concrete wood pissed or not they survived.
