Im from Brazil and new to this forum. Im a chef, also owner of a restaurante but I dont cook on the restaurant itself.
Besides that, I love knifes, and love to cook for friends.
Im looking for a new and high performance knife besides Wusthof and Henckels. I dont know NOTHING about types of steel, blades ETC. But I did some research on the forum and looked up for some itens on the website. I just need help clarifying some things:
1 - I want an Blade that is Extremely sharp and will hold it for a long time
2 - Has to be beautifull (As I would like to start a collection)
3 - Need to have good balance and be great for vegetables, no hard work involved. Just home cooking and looking great on my living room
I´m thinking on spending 200 U$ up to 300 U$ if its really worth it.
Here are some that I have my eyes on:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shunpremier21.html
- Really like the Looks and seems very sharp. But have some chip issues on the blade, is that correct?http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tskape15.htmlhttp://www.chefknivestogo.com/higy21.htmlhttp://www.chefknivestogo.com/tojiro-dp-f-8081.htmlhttp://www.chefknivestogo.com/mayugy21.html
(This is my current choice but they dont have it in stock)
Would you guys recommend something else? For 300 U$ i can just buy 2 cheaper and good ones or invest a little more on a Really nice blade.
Also I´m no good sharpening with stones. It has to be a blade that would fit just fine on a Wusthof handheld sharpener.
Thanks very much in advance
