I love cooking...and I love good design. The gorgeous Miyabi collection of knives from knife giant Zwilling JA Henckels are Made in Seki, Japan and designed by superstar chef Rokusaburo Michiba and one of his disciples, Masaharu Morimoto - I currently have one of these in a large Chefs knife and would LOVE more.
Know how to use your knives...I am so glad I have had chef training. Doesn't mean I get careless and sometimes don't rock the blade or use an inappropriate knife. I paid for it a few years ago and really cut my hand badly. KNOW YOUR KNIVES! And keep them sharpened...a dull knife is very dangerous.
