Some years ago I bought a set of Cold Steel kitchen knives. They served me well and I was happy with them until I bought and started using the Spyderco Santoku.
I am not here to bash CS products but when compared to the Spyderco knife they leave a lot to be desired. The Santoku has great edge retention, a comfortable ergonomic grip and a blade depth that affords knuckle clearance when cutting. It is a great "all rounder" yet I cannot help wondering what it would be like to have a full set of kitchen knives available to me.
Is there any way that you would consider the idea of updating some older kitchen models with better steel and matching handles to sell as a full set?
