So, I'm able to use some rewards points I've built up for a little Christmas shopping. I figured I would buy my girlfriend a nice knife, as she enjoys cooking (so do I, but we live apart for now).
My options are a little limited with the rewards, but I thought I would post here to get any advice. I was basically narrowing it down to a santoku or chef's knife. Also, I think I want it to be no bigger than a 5.5 or 6 inch knife. I fear anything bigger will get unwieldy. Though, I'm not set in stone on this.
A few options:
Wusthof Classic 6in Chef Knife
Henckels Zwilling Pro 5.5in Santoku Knife
Henckels Zwilling Pro 6in Wide Chef Knife
Morimoto by Henckels 8in Chef Knife (I only list this because it's discounted greatly. Thoughts on it? It's probably too big. But they also offer a 5.5in utility knife.)
Global 7in Vegetable Knife (Slightly intrigued. Could you use this for light proteins as well? Chicken, pork?)
So, those are a few choices. There are many more available, but I tried to limit to more highly regarded knives. What do you think? Or is there something else that would be better? I can look up any suggestions to see if they are available in the rewards.
Many thanks for any advice!
