Hello,

I’m interested in some new knives, and read about your great support. I was looking for a stainless steel knife. I’m interested in getting either a 210mm or 240mm chef knife, a Santoku and a small paring knife. The Misono UX10 caught my eye. Do you have any other recommendations? Would you be able to put a package together for me?

Thanks
David

Hi David,

I just started a new forum for Chefknivestogo. Do you mind if I use your question and my answer? It will help others who read it. I'll only use your first name if I post it.

Are you right handed?

Right Handed.

Do you know how to sharpen? If yes what's your routine?

No. My father does though on a wet stone. I was planning on getting it professionally done every couple of months depending on usage.

Do you like to rock the knife or push cut primarily?

I’m typically a rocker.

Do you want to get a western handled knife or Japanese handle?

I’m not sure about the difference. I’ve handled the Henckel Kramer, Shun classic, and wusthoff Ikon, and all have felt comfortable.

How much did you want to spend on the Chef Knife/Gyuto?

For all three (Chef, Santoku and paring), I was hoping to stay under 800, but is negotiable.









Kind Regards,
Mark Richmond

Hi David,

I would recommend you try a variety of different knives. It's way more fun to experience different steels and brands.

For a stainless chef knife/gyuto, here are a couple I like that should work well for you:

For a Petty knife there are lots of good choices. Here are a couple:

For a good santoku:
