I am a chef looking to buy a knife as a gift for my summer cooks. I can afford a total of $25 per person (incl. shipping). I will be purchasing 25 knives. I would like to get them a gyuto or santoku, between 165-200mm as there are some short girls and tall guys that will be in my kitchens. Most of these cooks are either straight out of high school or early college so the knife is as much symbolic as practical. Do you have any recommendations for knives or any price breaks for a non-profit orgs? Thanks for your time.

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

That's very nice of you but at $25 you're pricing yourself out of anything we sell certainly and I would be hard pressed to recommend anything descent off the top of my head.

How about a knife bag? That would hit your budget and they come in handy: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ri8pcknro.html

The other thought would be a good honing rod. This one is in your price target range: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/idahone.html

When I got my first cooking job it was pretty much the same scenario. The kitchen had house knives, but they also printed out description pages for victorinox and forschner in the budget range for us. Pretty much advice that if you're serous you should get your own gear :) otherwise, I'm sure Sysco can hook you up with some crapshoot knives that are NSF certified
