It is truly a joy for me to chop, carve, and slice.
Rob sharpens my knives for me at least once a month and I use them every day. When we travel, I'm usually forced to use sub-standard knives (although I have checked my knives more than once in my travels). There's just something about the familiarity and the quality of my wusthof knives - they make me happy.
If you love to cook and you don't have a good set of knives, I would urge you to treat yourself.
