In no way am I an expert on culinary tools or kitchen cutlery per se but I do think I have some decent stuff and I was wanting to get you guy's opinion of it. First of all back around 6 years ago I had an account with a restuarant supply company locally where I live and while I had the account I bought a few items from them. Most of the items I got are made by Frederick Dick or F. Dick as they are known in the industry out of Germany. I got almost all of the butcher steels they made at the time and still have those. Now I've heard from some knowledgable people in the trade that F. Dick's steels are the best in the industry. If they are not I would like to know who's is better. I also got one of their meat clevers and several of their culinary knives. So far all of the F. Dick products I got are very satisfactory to me and what I've done with them. I love quality tools to work with. So please tell me what you all know about their stuff if you would. Now I've heard that a lot of the high end Japanese stuff is even better than a lot of the items from the F. Dick line up. I truly would like to know what I can about them. I still have wholesale access to get more later if I find anything else I need.
