First time poster here de-lurking for some advice on filling out my knife kit. By way of background, up until two weeks ago I was completely ignorant about knife quality and maintenance, and relied upon very irregular use of a honing rod and incredibly infrequent trips to whatever knife sharpening service I could find. I currently have a 2 year old Wusthof Ikon Classic set (chef, bread, utility, paring), most of whose knives are definitely in need of maintenance. My last sharpening with the Wusthof chef's knife (done in a back room of a Kitchen Kapers - who knows what they did) was very disappointing. So I started doing a little research, found this forum and others, and a couple days later ordered a MAC MBK-95. Now I want to take care of the MAC and bring the Wusthofs closer to their potential, which from what I've gathered, is far greater than how they arrive from the factory. Would an Edge Pro Apex be overkill, given my novice status, and which Apex kit would be most appropriate? The price difference between the different versions isn't huge, but I'm not interested in overbuying. I would like all the necessary equipment to deal with the knives I currently have, and perhaps an addition or two in the future. The Apex 3 looks like the most common configuration people get, but not sure if it's the best fit for my needs. Any thoughts? Thanks.
