Greetings,

I intend to buy 2 knife sets for my twin sons birthdays.

I suppose it will be hard to beat the Tojiro Professionals 2 Pc Set @ $120.
Is there an option for 210mm on the chef?

What is the RC value please?

We'll need guards for each.

Shipping to three locations if not extra.

.

I may well buy a third set for myself, now or soon, as I've started cooking again; raw and vegetarian with wild fish occasionally.
Having toyed as a knife-maker (no longer) I may look into an upgrade but not sure what would be better at this price.
I'm a one knife kinda guy who thinks that includes a 3.5" pairing blade.

I've got some serviceable Swiss stuff, but I've been trending towards Japanese patterns.

If I do upgrade it will probably be something 240mm, maybe blue, perhaps Damascus or whatnot. Japanese style handle.
At least R60.
Not exactly sure why I'm not thinking cleaver here.

Nothing too fancy please, but your recommendation is requested.

No rush, I like your company.

Jim

Yes this Tojiro set includes the 210mm gyuto for $20 less: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/to2pcstset.html

HRC is about 59-60 on these knives.

This 2 pc set is one of the better values on the site. If you want something comparable the Fujiwara FKM stainless line is comparable and in a similar price range. So is the Suisin inox. All of these knives will do well for you.

For knife guards the ones on the bottom of this page are cheap, durable and work really well: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/riac.html
