Hello,

I am looking to add a ten inch chef's knife to my collection. I'm interested in a heavier version, and am looking at Wusthof Classics, the Messermeister, F Dick 1905, and the Tojiro DP. Any thoughts on weight or pro/cons would be appreciated.

I already own Wusthof classics, and numerous Japanese knives. As such I am more interested in relative comparisons as opposed to overall style explanations.

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if it is easier to call.

Matt

I prefer the German stuff without the finger guards so my first choice would be the wusthof ikon. They have excellent fit and finish, have some heft and hold an edge pretty well compared to the F Dick and Messermeister. They also have 15 degree bevels on the edges now so they perform better than in years past when their bevels were slightly north of 20 degrees on each side.

I think you should consider the Masamoto VG. It's a good knife with enough heft and it's a better performing knife than the above group. The steel is a little harder but not much and it holds an edge better. I love that knife as a German replacement.
