Here's a great question from reader Wyatt, who is struggling to identify all the knives in his new set. He writes:
I received a butcher block and some decent knives for Christmas, and it's nice to have a full fresh set with all the amenities. However, I keep finding that I really only end up using the large chef's knife, the short paring knife, and the bread knife. I've missed some crucial aspect of my education, I think: what are the rest of these for?
