Birthday Gift

Fri Oct 11, 2013 6:04 pm

Hello Fanatics!

I'm looking at purchasing a 210mm Gyuto for a friends birthday.

She's a home cook, very serious about cooking but doesn't own good knives.
She prefers smaller chef's knife, likes the handle on my Richmond Ultimatum.

I'd like to spend 100 to 150, and get her an easy to maintain, stainless Japanese handle Gyuto in the 210 range.

What is your top 3 choices.

Thank you.

I bought the Tojiro 210mm Damascus gyuto for my wife. She loves it. I would also look at the Suison Inox line. I also would not discount the new Kohetsu line. It is probably my favorite knife of the bunch that fits in the price range you are looking at. Beware. The edge of these knives are nothing like the knives your recipient has ever used. They are extremely sharp. She will be very very happy!!

That one looks PERFECT.

Thank you guys for the advice
going to pick that up next pay period for her.

Do you ship direct or will I have to ship it to my house and then reship it?
