This whole thread and conversation was about food. Not wood. And who argued? Not me. I just made my original post asking who uses their collection knives in the kitchen. I did not ask what is the best knife to use in the kitchen. Then people took it off base and joined the conversation to argue I was using the wrong tools and should be using a kitchen knife because they choose to use dedicated kitchen knives. I have never argued people should be using this or that knife for any particular task. My only 'argument' is that I see no need to buy dedicated kitchen knives. What I have in the existing collection is more than adequate to prepare food.
