Would it be stupid to buy a knife set?

it wouldn't be on credit 😉

Or would a couple of knives do the job? Cooking is not a hobby for me, I only cook because I save money that way. Do you really need a knife set in life even if you cook to save money, or is a knife set one of those things that a company has convinced us that we "need?"

It would be a waste.

If you already have a few sharp knives, which do the job, then a set of new knives is just an unnecessary waste. It is money you don't need to spend (since you cook to save money) and it is also just going to add clutter to your house. What will you do with the old knives You Are replacing?

It is relatively cheap to sharpen old knives. You can get a sharpening stone and do it yourself, or take them to a butcher and ask them to sharpen them.

You just want the knife set. The fact that you asked this question is proof that you're smart enough to tell the difference between a want and a need. The knife set is a want, not a need.

Best Wishes
