I've recently gone back to being a chef in "fine dining".
My old blades are screaming for mercy.
I ready for a good Ao-Ko Gyutou or as close as I can afford. I want a sexy folded steel blade, at least 9.5" long and a comfortable grip.
So far all I can find is mail-order from Toronto (Internet Kitchen Store) and Korin from New York.
Is there anyone with a good selection out here? How about in Seattle?
