I am looking for a 8" chef's nice to give as a housewarming present to a recent college grad. Both of these are between $40-$45 and seemed similar. Anyone know how the "Gourmet" line, http://www.cooking.com/products/shpro... , compares with the International Classic line, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/... ?
Also, if anyone has a suggestion for a good paring knife around $20 I'll take it. Trying to decide between Mundial 5100 Series 4-Inch Paring Knife, Black, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/... , and the Calphalon Traditional Cutlery 4-1/2-Inch Paring Knife, http://www.amazon.com/Calphalon-Tradi... .
