Heres my thoughts on knives chef, take a basic set to start, then get used to them, how the different knives work, what knife does what, get used to the basics, but more importantly, get used to the rythm of knives in your hand doing different jobs, and get ur hand eye co-ordination to a good standard......including how to sharpen your knives, and how to keep an edge.

Then when your happy, go into a good kitchen store, and try a few out, get used to the weight and balance, because thats what you are after, I dont have a full set of any make.......I have a full chef set of different makes, but I like the balance and feel of all of them.............then justpractice chef, its better to cut yourself with a sharp knife than it is with a blunt one I can tell you that chef.

Well to answer a students needs a Victorinox is best, it holds a edge well and is easy to handle, the thing is it isn't expensive as its stamped not forged but if lost or stolen easy to replace. I have Wustoffs, Henckels, Shuns all different ones for different needs. Take your time as it isn't something to waste money on, you should have them for life. Sets give you un-necessary ones check out cooks illustraated for reviews. As for the best in the world its too subjective and leads to long arguments going no-where.

Personally, I think Global Knives are top of the line, but they are expensive, so I would only recommend for top chefs.

Hello
Some very good advice reading through the previous posts.
I started using the normal supplied basic students set offered in college then moved to Victroinox when starting out in the real world.
Over the years you know when you have a good knife, it's not only comfortable but seems to know what your wanting to do before you do it.
I have for the past fifthteen years built up my Wusthof Classic knife set, so much so,I have two sets, one for working and the other well just to look at and appreciate.
The oldest ones, fifthteen years old now still perform and look like they did when new and have been taken everywhere I have worked here and aboard.
Like anything in life, if they are looked after and cared for they will last a life time, I can honestly say I have never had an issue with any Wusthof product and no I do not work for them.
My spare set I will keep and hopefully if my son follows my footsteps will offer them to him.
Simply put, you will know when you've found the right knife for the right job.
Take care
