Mark & Susan

I am looking for an extremely sharp (out of the box) and very low maintenance Chef’s knife and boning/butcher’s knife – price not a huge factor

Normally I would have bought the Michael Bras knives or something like that from Williams Sonoma but I’ve been reading a lot about Japanese knives and wanted to give one or two of them a try; thought about Nenox but they don’t seem to get great write-ups

We recently moved to OH from NY so there aren’t a lot of knife sharpeners around and I don’t want to do any of that myself – don’t mind sending them away once in a while but am already dealing with moving from an apartment to a house so not looking to add things to do

Suggestions?
Thanks
Jon

Are you right handed? Yes
Do you like to rock the knife or push cut primarily? Rock
Do you want a stainless or carbon steel knife? I don’t know; which should I want? I want best, sharpest steel – I won’t put in the dishwasher but don’t want to have to rub it with oil every time I use it
Do you want to get a western handled knife or Japanese handle? Japanese
How much did you want to spend on the Chef Knife/Gyuto and the boning knife? <$500 Chef; <$300 boning

For the Gyuto, there are 2 knives I think you should consider. Both are from Takayuki. They are both made with high grade ginsanko stainless steel (aka silver 3 steel). They're hand made in Sakai and both are great performing knives and very nice looking too. The steel will hold it's edge a long time.

For a boning knife I would try this:

Or if you want to try a carbon steel knife I would get this:
