Hi guys, realize this is probably an much visited query but I am looking for an upgrade on a chef knife. I would not take it to work, just home use. Currently I have a 14 year old Lamson sharp, and a shun classsic which are both 10".
I also have a shun classic santoku that is 7" that sees a lot of use. I think I am proficient with my edge pro although the more I read the less I am sure about that...
I have a bunch of pocket knives in "snob" steels and can keep them quite sharp. I also have a few in high carbon and have no issue caring for them and don't mind the look of a patina.
Right now I am drawn to a miyabi 7000mc 240mm but have been looking for something in SG2 like the shun elites used.
I am not set on these and came here looking for advice. I have two young kids and bills to pay so this would be more or less a birthday "splurge". I would like to hear your thoughts and would be glad to answer any questions that would help you to guide me in the right direction. Thanks, Russ
