I have started to cook more seriously in the last couple of years, and am now interested in getting a good knife for the kitchen. Want a good all-around knife that will last, and is not too expensive ($110 max).
Was fascinated by the Santuko knife, but am not sure if that is the way to go. Have tried going to Sur La Table, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Crate & Barrel, but still haven't found what I'm looking for.
Am thinking that I want a 7 or 8 inch knife, the handle is not slippery, and that has a good weight to it. Most of the knives I looked at seemed to be geared towards women and were very light. Any thoughts, and/or suggestions on where to look at additional knife stores or websites (the problem w/ websites, of course, is that you can't give them a trial run).
