The Chef's Knife

I know at least several people who may or may not read this poor excuse for a blog are in college. These are people who are unlikely to have many kitchen tools of their own. Unless they're like me, which is unlikely, they don't need them. But probably within the next couple years they will. Everyone does eventually. This is one thing that has been said many times, and many times better before but I want to do my part to make sure that everyone knows.

The most important thing to have in any kitchen is a good quality chef's knife. Resist the temptation to buy one of those knife sets that comes with 15 knifes and cost $40-$120 at Target. Every single one of those knives is a worthless piece of shit. Those knives will become dull instantly are at best difficult and at worst dangerous to cut with. You are much better off spending $80-$100 on one knife. That knife should be a 6-10 inch chef's knife such as this one or this one. Knives like these will probably last you the rest of your life. I can't think of a better investment.
