Here are my main 2 work knives. The current chef knife has a nice wide blade, so lots of room. It's a tad heavy though. Slows me down a might.

That inexpensive Henkels parer (that I modded to be wharnie) has peeled thousands of potatoes, and says "gimme more, man". After years of peeling, I've settled on this knife. Best peeler ever. Easy to touch up. Great control. Highly recommended.

I just noticed, it's getting worn down. I better mod a backup.

Jazz,

FYI.
Victorinox has some parings that are wharnies or outright hawkbill. No modding needed
Not sure how different the steel compared to Henckels.

This is a very theoretical discussion for me. The only time I even consider a totally inferior folding knife for kitchen duty is when I'm preparing for a knifereview and wants to spend more time with getting to know the knife in question. Otherwise I use kitchen knives in the kitchen. :) They tend to outperform every folder there is no matter design and price level.

The strange thing is that I more than once encountered people who automatically assume that I don't have good kitchen knives because I'm generally into folders. Of course I have a solid amount of kitchen knives. I'm an eager home chef as well. Why should I try to dice an onion with a small and for the purpose rather bad EDC-type folder? It's like trying to process wood with the same knife. Of course you could, it's just no good at it.

You'd be surprised. I've noticed lots of folks talking about using folders for food prep. Doing it as a test for fun is one thing, but day in day out? I'll take a chef knife any day. Victorinox 10" for me.

Probably very similar steel. Those wee hawkbill ones look too short, and the curve makes them useless, in my opinion. Someone must like them, or they wouldn't make them.

Exactly. It is fun... once in a while. And you guys that use 10" chef knives - I'm proud of you.

Could the trend of shorter santoku style knives be due to smaller kitchens? Less room for a large pointy blade when in a crowded kitchen?

I think Rachel Ray started it, or something like that. People see it and think it's where it's at.
