Yes, another knife question... Zwilling Pro opinions?

helpermonkey | Nov 5, 201803:53 PM     3

Hi everyone. I can't find my sharpening stone and my already very meh knives (hand me downs of unknown provenance) are long overdue for a good sharpening. It will happen when I find my stone, but I think this has been the impetus for me to finally get a proper chef's knife. I know I want an 8-10" blade. I like a traditional western curved shape over a santoku style. Williams Sonoma has the Zwilling Pro 8" on sale for $80 right now with their one day sale. Worth it? Am reading mixed reviews. Anyone own one? $80 is what I *want* to spend but I can spend up to let's say $150. For that money, is there a better, sharper workhorse option? Or should I just jump on this deal? I know there are a lot of knife threads here on Chowhound, so thanks for bearing with me on this. I looked at some of those but many were outdated, or not price specific etc... Thanks all!
