I took Chinese Cooking Classes in the 70's as a way to invite my dates to my house and impress them... it worked! Now I am going to be impressing my grandchildren with my stir-fry skills. I had 3 instructors, including Martin Yan, and my first was a young woman who had just arrived from Taiwan. She was using and suggested a Dexter Chef Knife as the one to get. So I did, but it has gone by the wayside in many moves and haven't done stir-fry in many years.
In reading around, some are saying that Dexter's are not made the same and do not hold an edge.
