Chef Knives To Go,

My brother is graduating at the top of his class from CIA in October and I want to get him a 240mm Gyuto around 200$ that is both functional and a piece of art. What would you recommend?

Thanks,

Luke

Barring additional information like that he's against carbon, or some other criteria.....this is a great knife for the under $200 mark.....unfortunately OOS at the moment though:

The Goko is a great knife for the price and has a cool rustic look to it. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/gokogyuto240mm.html

Konosuke HD2 240 Gyuto.

He'll love it. It's semi-stainless...so not much maintenance in the working place. Great profile. ;)

Personally I love my 240 AS Laser. Comes in just above $200, http://www.chefknivestogo.com/rilaaosu24gy.html . Honestly surprised no one else has mentioned it.

I was going to recommend the Tanaka Sekiso 240mm or the Richmond Laser AS 240mm, but people beat me to the punch :)

ah ah aah, he said around $200 and something that is functional and somewhat a piece of art, that knife is purely function and does so extremely well and a bit closer to $300

LUKE <> Knives as gifts are a dangerous thing... especially for someone that has handled a knife for a few years already. It's sort of an unfortunate reality, but I would NEVER buy a knife for someone, ANYONE, w/o involving them in the process.

They need to be educated on & perfectly clear with what they are assuming...
