OK guys I am off to a good start with a wusthof set and it comes with a 8" chef knife.. which seems to handle well,... but seems like concensus is saying 10" is better etc. Is it really necessary for the home cook? I am not cutting 8 hours a day, in fact just preparing 1 meal a day.. If 8" is a little less effecient, but repeating the sawing action with a shorter knife is not a big deal, is it?
