Gift for my wife.

Thu Jun 21, 2012 3:06 pm

My wife loves to cook and I want to buy her a new knife for her birthday. She currently has a few stainless chef/santoku knives and is happy with them but they are not as sharp as she would like.

She loves to cook Asian food in general, does a lot of chopping of vegetables because of this. She does not do much meat or butchering type work. I think she would be fine with a carbon steel knife as long as it’s super sharp and holds it edge well. I would like to keep the purchase under $100 if possible, do you have any recommendations you could point me to? I recently bought the Tojiro DP from you for my cousin and my wife seemed to like it so that’s a starting point.

Hi Dan,

This is a really good question for our forum. Do you mind if I post it? You'll get multiple answers.

For about a hundred bucks this Hiromoto Santoku is hard to beat: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/hisakn19.html

This Dojo is out of stock now but we'll have more in a couple weeks. This one takes and holds a great edge and it's under $100. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/dojogyuto180mm.html

Kind Regards,
