I'm looking to get a nice set of knives for my parents for Christmas. My parents really like my Tojiro's, but I would like to get them something different so I can experiment with different brands as well. I would like to get a set with a 240mm chef knife/Gyoto and a paring knife. We have about $120 to spend on the set because I will need to get a set of knife savers as well.
So give me your recommendations.

It's pushing the budget to $130, but the Artifex gyuto and parer in AEB-L are very good values.

Can I use a 120mm petty blade knife like this for a paring knife? http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fufkmpe12.html
I can I will proabably go with one of the Fujiwara gyuto.http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fujiwara1.html
(I just noticed that one is out of stock).http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fufkmgy21.htmlhttp://www.chefknivestogo.com/fufkmgy24.html
Is the 210 or 240mm blade better or is it a personal preference?

Home users tend to use 210s more but lots of guys on the forums prefer the larger 240.

what about the 120mm for a paring knife?

Depends on how you use a parer I reckon.
Me, no, I prefer something in the 80mm length for a parer. 120mm has always been a useless size for me.....too long for a paring and too short for a petty.

I don't usually give petty/parers much thought. I guess I slightly prefer a bigger one in the 150mm range since it's a little more versatile.
