How much should you spend on a set fairly decent knives, not the top end of the range, but midway? We arent serious cooks like ye lot :-8 , but cook a fair bit and the ones we have are cr*p?

I did a course with them before (not knife skills). Not the best €150 euro I ever spent :-8

Hokey I think your better off without a "set" of knives. What I'd recommend to start is a decent sized chefs knife, a vegetable knife and a smaller utility knife. I really like Global knives but they are very expensive however if your only buying 3 they might be doable (btw BTs normally include at least some of them in the after Christmas sale). If you can only buy one knife - get this one. It's a 5 1/2 inch veg knife and it makes life in the kitchen a whole lot more enjoyable. [img:211ai4pc][/img:211ai4pc]
