I'm a home cook looking get a quality but affordable chef's knife. I'll use the knife more for slicing than chopping or cleaving, and will be cutting veggies, meats, nuts, smashing garlic, etc. I'll use this almost everyday and want it to last as well as keep an edge, be comfortable to hold, and not have a full, extended bolster (want to use the whole blade). Since this will my only quality knife, I wouldn't mind it looking nice either. From looking around at product reviews, I have my eye on either a Messermeister Meridian Elite Stealth Chef's Knife ($99, cutleryandmore) or a Tojiro DP Chef's Knife ($59, cutleryandmore). Can anyone vouch for these? Also open to other suggestions. Thanks!
