I organize an annual four-day event that we have catered. Our chef is a super nice guy who works very hard for a reasonable price. I'd like to personally give him a decent knife, as a token of my appreciation for how hard he works. He's a humble guy who's used to using Forschners.
If anyone has a gently used, entry level knife in good or better condition, I'm interested. Since the knife is for someone else, I figure I shouldn't go too far from what he's used to, so I'm looking for stainless (or semi-stainless), with a western handle. Most likely a 240, or something close.
For reference, if nothing pans out here, I may just get him a new Tojiro DP. I might also look for some kind of combination stone as well.
Thanks for looking.
