Switching from Santoku to Chef knife?

nonnon | Dec 16, 2007 05:40 PM

Ok, I currently own a Mighty Mac Santoku knife wich is really nice. My problem with it is that it seems to be too light, fragile and brittle for my taste (the 2nd day after I got it, I dropped it and the tip of the knife broke and went flying through the kitchen! doh!).

Now, I've tried a Henckels four star 8" chef's knife from a friend and I fell in love. Would you guys recommend buying the four star or going maybe with a wusthof (or any other high quality heavy chef's knife) and keeping the santoku or bringing the santoku back to the store and asking for a trade (don't know if that would happen now that the blade is chipped and its been about 8 months I've been using it)?
