    you don’t need expert to say which on is costlier any common ppl can say which one is expensive. Though it was informative but I feel you should have some different themes and title for videos like this.

    8:09 "6-7 inches is all you really need for a boning..."

    From the look of his hands I choose not to follow his advice to cut towards myself.

  • John Antonopoulous

    You can tell he cooks because of how he talks about the victorinox knives. They are one of the best utility knives and you can beet the crap out of them but you prefer every other knife when your not at work.

    Is that 3100 "dollars" for that knife?...That is a TOATL, COMPLETE, UTTER RIDICULOUS..RIP OFF
    It's not even a pattern. It's a random pattern.
    There's people making bigger and better knifes than that for 5 times less price.
    That is just stealing money off of dumb people with too much of it.

    I'm an idiot but thank god for this video because now I know I'm a genius when it comes to kitchen knives! I don't want to BRAG, but I was able to guess which knife was cheaper and why it was cheaper, in about a second after seeing them. Thank you, Epicurious, for restoring my confidence and pointing me towards my true calling in life, tomorrow I plan to quit my job, and begin a franchise(ANYONE INTERESTED, WHO'S COMING WITH ME??) that allows me to purchase kitchen knives, lookout cruel world I'm moving on up, to the east side, I'm moving on up, to the east side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky, I finally got a piece of the pIIIIIeeeeee! JK I'm STILL AN IDIOT

    As a professional full time and award winning knife maker, Monolith Knves,Its my opinion Geoff makes a few poor assumptions and actually is misleading in regards to details such as his description of carbon patina which actually protects the steel once it develops. I think he's trying to simplify this for a broad audience. Knives are a very personal experience and an extension of each user. What is "best" outside of craftsmanship and materials is up for the user to decide. The chef knives we make run between $700-800 . They are high performance knives which are also heirloom art.The damascus blade is made by my friend Mareko Maumasi -Mausami Fire Arts, he is an incredible knifemaker, a very kind person, and Bob Kramer's former apprentice. His knives can sell for $3000+ Kramer's hand made knives sell for $8,000-10K. People made comments about Geoff's hands, he's a knife maker. Feder Knives. If you wanna know about knives ask a knifemaker.

    You put a domascus steel knife up again a normal knife. If course its more expensive. There is no guessing there.

  • tarun gadale

    Lol u seriously need to be an expert to say which one is cheaper than the seriously ..😂😂😂 one knife has a great design on handle, Damascus,wood,brass,rivets, etc and the other is just mould of plastic or rubber

    The only thing that is not completely common sense here is the fact that if you have a 'black knob' for your bolster, you will not be able to contact the cutting board with the entirety of the knife. So props for that I guess.
