I took some knives in to be sharpened today, and was browsing through the store's selection. Been ages since I've bought a knife, but it was fun handling them and seeing what a visceral reaction the feeling of one in one's hand can provoke.
Anyway, they carry Porsche knives, which I'd never seen before. Japanese steel, with a bizarrely shaped, horizontally oriented handle. I have to say, it felt really good in my hand!
A 6-in. chef's knife was running about 55 euros. Would love to hear from anyone who's used one -- worth it? How do they compare to Henckels (my trusty 10-in chef's knife war-horse is a Henckels)?
