I am a finance guy by day, serious home cook by night . I want to upgrade to a real chef knife and work from there. I am a male with an avg size hand. My current equipment is nothing to even talk about and I want to start from scratch. Looking for advice as far as what knife(s), a sharping set (advice on how to learn) and what other knifes I should get. Also, help with where you would buy them!
Help with buying:
1. Chef Knife budget $300 or under, need help w/ size
2. Paring knife $150 or under
3. Yanagi $350 or under
4. Sharping supplies, knife bag, and how to sharpen
I have a: Bread Knife, Chinese one piece steel handle cleaver, junky chef knife and paring knife going to Goodwill
Enjoying helping me spend money!
