I presently use Victorinox, Wüsthof Gourmet and similar laser cut knives. I want to get a forged knife (like Wüstof Classic maybe) to see the difference. I thought that, in order to limit expense, I would get a smaller forged knife.
I also want a serrated paring knife. So the obvious idea is to get a forged serrated paring knife. However, since I'm not currently using one of those, I won't be able to have a direct comparison on performance.
Where should I begin? Is a normal paring knife "enough knife" for me to understand the difference if any or do I need something bigger? Can I get the forged serrated knife and kill two birds with one stone? Or will I really something that's more directly comparable?
Also, are there any particular brands or lines I should be looking into if I want to experience the difference a quality forged knife makes?
Thanks for your advice!
