I thought this would be helpfull for visitors that are looking for a few quick recommendations on a good knife under $100 purchased as a gift. Let's give some options. We'll make a few assumptions.

Home cook.
Prefers stainless.
Under $100.
Doesn't know how to sharpen.

Western handled knives:

1) Tojiro DP F-808 Gyuto 210mm: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tojiro-dp-f-8081.html.

I have this knife and it's a very solid performer. It's thin, has nice grinds, really good edge profile, good F&F, pretty sharp OOTB.

2) Fujiwara FKM-09 Gyuto 210mm: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fufkmgy21.html.

Similar to the Tojiro, but a little lighter and mono-steel blade versus clad on the Tojiro.

For something a little larger - the 240mm versions of the same knives: Tojiro DP F-809 240mm & Fujiwara FKM-10 240mm.

Here's another good pick. Shun Sora at $79.95 is hard to beat: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shunsora8chef.html
