Starter Chef Knife for my daughter---loves Damascus

strangemd | Jul 25, 2011 08:15 AM

My daughter is going off to med school and getting her own apartment. She's a very decent cook, but has no equipment. Rather than getting a silly knife block with tons of things she doesn't much use, she'd rather have a good Chef's knife. She just got back from Japan and was salivating over knives, but also really likes a Damascus style. I was thinking about the Shun Premier 8" chef's knife, which I can get for ~ $150. Thoughts? I like the fact that Shun will sharpen it for her at will. Any other recommendations in that price range?
