My parents are coming to visit and you know what that means! Time to get my knives sharpened. I am in love with my knives. Last Christmas my parents gave us a set of Wusthof knives. Quite possibly the best gift I've ever received (sorry Josh). They are incredible and have truly elevated my cooking and my joy of cooking to a new level. I didn't think a good knife would make such a difference. But, they are only incredible if you keep them sharpened. My dad sharpens his knives, but until I learn how, I take mine to Chef Central (the goal is once a year) and pay $1.00 for each blade sharpened. I'm getting them sharpened now to gear up for the big cooking season (you know, the holidays) and also so my Dad thinks I'm as dilligent with my knives as he is with his. I don't put them in the dishwasher (gasp! can you imagine!), but I'm not very good about using that steel thingy. If you are looking to buy new knives I would suggest Wusthof or Henckels.
