Quite often, having bought a knife, we catch ourselves thinking that we want to buy one more, and then this one and this one. At some point, we admit to ourselves that we are starting to buy knives without any system and meaning. At this moment it's time to understand and accept the terrible - I'm a collector.
Before talking about which knife is better, you need to understand that any knife is a tool focused on performing certain functions. Using a chopping knife, you can peel the potatoes, and cut the carcass with a vegetable knife, but this will probably be very inconvenient.
