            Amazon.com: Victorinox 40520 Fibrox 8-Inch Chef's Knife: Kitchen & Dining

            Yea just get this for you knife. I have a Shun, and ceramic knives and you will do just fine with a good $30 knife. Now it won't hold an edge as long but just get a steel and it will work fine for a good long time.

              I am a kitchen junky here...but my essentials are...
              - multiple sized cast iron pans
              - multiple turners
              - oxo peeler
              - oxo tongs
              - oxo pastry blender (I still make GF foods and this is priceless to me!)
              - oxo wire whisk
              - kitchenaid hand mixer (again, I use this more for baking than anything else, you might be able to go without)
              - glass pyrex bowls
              - Brisker (these are GREAT for keeping nuts dry---got this for my wedding 12 years ago and it still serves my countertop well)
              - kitchen shears...multiple pairs
              - Wilton cookie sheets
              - glass baking dishes
              - a mixing bowl or many of them that you really like. I have a Pfaltzgraff bowl that I LOVE.

                My most loved tool is my ceramic pealer. I'd never use a metal one again.

                  I would only add two things: a mortar and pestle and a glass juicer. These two things see daily use in our kitchen. We recently visited relatives over the holidays and when we cooked for people we needed these two things and had to improvise.

                    I typically only use it in the summer, but the coolest kitchen tool I have is a spiral slicer. Primal pasta = Zucchini noodles!

                    Also, I love my garlic press, food processor, and ceramic skillets.

                          I'm a kitchen junkie, I have all kinds of useless shit, but find uses for it all. My favorite is probably my set of Wustof knives. I get pissed when somebody touches my knives.
