Closure: went to edgeworks in Freerick. Spoke to a young man who seemed to know his stuff. Came home with the following:

1. Yaxel Dragon Chef's Knife
2. Yaxel dragon slicer

I like this company's knives for a great price.

http://www.radacutlery.com/

I use to see them of sale at gun shows, but haven't seen any for sale in the last 2 years.

Do you push or pull cut?

What's more important to you form or function?

How important is buying American?

Do any butchering or just veggies, meats, etc?

Don't buy a wooden cutting board.

What's the deal with not using a wooden cutting board. I have two that I use daily but I now place a mat on them before cutting up stuff. Makes it easier to transport the goodies to the pot.

More likely to have something growing in the tiny cuts in the wood. More effort to make safer.

I like the flexible plastic cutting sheets.

I agree with this. You have to be very careful with its cleaning, especially if you cut raw meat on it. Butchers block is nice and served it's purpose for a long time. But, its not worth it anymore.

Agree with both of you . I like the wooden block mainly due to the fact that I have granite countertops and it makes me feel better putting pots ,pans etc on the wood .I still use the plastic cutting sheets to prep the grub. I also make sure to wipe the board down with bleach as i'm using them. Also have deducted mats for veggies, meats,fish,and chicken......my major concern.
