Thanks Tom. It's good to know that the Forshner's are that popular amongst the people that choose a good knife for a living/hobby. Listening to the experienced folks pays off once again. Seems to be habit forming.
Wheelz. I got the Granton blade on the slicer after reading up on them. Figure it will help to cut some items thin when desired.
I bought 8 Forschner's, and Cutlery and More threw in 3 Forschner paring knives for free since I spent over $99. Like I said, they priced them right.
