I have been working in the Culinary field for a while now (about 8 years), but never really invested in a decent set of knives, and this is the part where I don't know where to begin. I picked up a couple cheap knives from a restaurant supply store near by, mostly because I was going to compete in an competition and didn't have anything, so it did the job fine. But I would like a knife set that will last me a while, more then likely I wont use them on the job, since I am a cook in the Navy and I would rather mess up Uncle Sams knives before mine. But in the chance I have to do something out of left field, like cook for an Admiral or the CO, then I think it would pay off if I needed to do something a bit more "fancy" (and yes it has happened to me already, which means its going to happen again). The internet seems to be a HUGE mess of information, and quiet frankly I rather have an honest professional opinion vs a couple of reviews. Among these knives I also and looking for a good garnishing set for those just in-case situations that may arise. Any advice?
