Recommendations for Lightweight Chefs' Knives?

Caitlin McGrath | Aug 23, 2006 03:35 AM

My mother needs to a new chef's knife, and she'd like to find something good that's fairly light in weight but not crazy expensive. The one she's had for thirty years or so and uses daily, but which has detiorated and needs replacing, is carbon steel, so it's a lot lighter than most forged stainless, which is what she'll be buying. But she's small, and used most comfortable, physically, with the lighter weight of her present knife. She hasn't started knife shopping, but I'd like some suggestions to pass on to her when she goes to try out new candidates.
