First Chef's Knife?

ubermasonfan | Nov 2, 2006 04:36 AM

Hi all. I've recently started cooking more since my SO and I have graduated college. I think its time for me to get a real chef's knife rather than the flimsy one that my parents gave me as a "kitchen warming" present. I was hoping y'all could help me find a good chef's kinfe to start my collection with. Price isn't really an issue. I'm looking for a relatively heavy knife since I'm a decent sized guy and the weight would help me control the knife better. I was thinking about a Henkel 4 Star (primarily because I saw it in Macy's) or something in that vein. If it matters, I live in the Washington DC area and would love to go to a store to try a knife out but I don't think thats crucial. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
