Sakai Takayuki hammered damascus, 240mm. Bought on a whim on vacation in Japan. I still use it a lot.

My first was a moritaka honesuki. A different world from my victorinox butcher knives. A kono hd gyuto soon followed for the kitchen.

Im surprised I'm not reading more "Shun" responses. Mine was a 8 inch Shun classic- I guess that counts. I was actually in a william sonoma the other day and played around with a couple of shuns… some of the new ones are actually ground really nice and are nice and thin. Yikes I can't believe Im saying that.
On a side note, i always find it really funny when the middle aged women at william sonatas talk to me like a dummy brag gin about how good the globals and shuns are…. "they're really sharp…" Ohhhh if they only knew what was out there hahaha

I don't know if this counts - but it was a Calphalon Katana 6" Chef's knife. These have heavy handles, but they're quite thin at the edge & are good performers. I have since given it to someone who uses it a lot and appreciates the performance.

My first knife from Mark was the Artifex AEB-L 210 Gyuto.

Mine was the 10 pc Shun classic set. They were an eye opener, as to what could be.

I had plenty of knives to cook with and they all worked well for me. They included a couple Henckels, Wustofs, and other assorted knives (many of the small knives were from Marshalls). I was really into pocket knives and then got hooked on kitchen cutlery. My first J knife was off Amazon and her it is:

A SETO petty! Damascus, VG-10.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CBT ... UTF8&psc=1

By this time I knew how to sharped from stones and this thing did scream when sharpened. I remember not liking the lack of space under the choil but otherwise really liked it. It's been in a box (I think the Masakage Shimo petty box) in the cabinet for awhile but it got me hooked. So that started me off and now I'm half a dozen J knives in and there are a lot of future knives in my bookmarks.

What was your first "drug" of choice?

Not my first J knife, but I also have this Seto Petty. My wife uses it quite a bit, she really likes it. We have had it almost a year know, I have only had to touch it up twice. Sharpens real easy on the stones. I usually just have to use my DMT fine and extra fine diamond stone, and a quick strop on balsa and leather.

Global.

I found a guy named Mel on the street that said it is the best thing since sliced bread and he gave me his. My attempt at humor.

My first j knife was a global given to me as a gift.
