Hey everyone! First post here...
I'm looking to get my first semi-high-end knife to supplement an ok set I've been using for several years. I was leaning toward getting a traditional 8" chef's knife, but am intrigued by this Shun from WS: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produc...
It seems like a very good deal at this price. I actually held several knives at the store today, and I liked both the Shun and the Wusthof Classic knives. I didn't care as much for the Global I tried.
I have some moderate knife skills, though I'm actually going to take a course at a local community college just to supplement my skills. I've used both a chef's knife and santoku at home, and don't necessarily have a preference. If forced to say which way I've leaned, I would say I tend to pull out the chef's knife more often than the 7" santoku.
The woman at the store described this as almost a cross between a santoku and a chef's knife.
I'm sure ANYTHING I get will be better than what I've been using, but I'm just wondering... I'm figuring on staying around the $100 range, give or take a few bucks.
Anyone else have any experience with this knife?
Thanks for your thoughts and input!
