Hey gang, as my luck usually goes I found this forum about a year ago after I had just ordered a shun premier chef knife. Though shun are not really held with high regards in this forum it has done a decent enough job for me for the last year but it never felt right on my hands and I would usually find myself going for a generic old knife I have laying around to do most task unless I needed a significantly sharper knife I rarely would go for the shun, it just never felt right.
I have invested a lot in my kitchen equipment and I think it's only fair to add a decent knife to my tools. I'm looking for something like a chef knife mostly and want to spend around $150-200 if you guys could point me to the right direction that would be great. I'm also looking for a pairing knife but have no idea where to look for. I'm a stay home father and look after my 2 daughters and a part timer so I apologize if there's a thread similar to this but I just don't Much down time to sit and really research like I'd like too and I figure I can get an answer this way quicker.
Thanks to all in Advance.
