I am new on the forum and discovering the world of kitchen knives (to be honest I am kinda lost!)
I am a 22 y/o cooking fanatic (not a professional chef.... and I am not planning to become one either!) and I am looking to buy my first kitchen knives. I am aiming for something that is of great quality, sturdy and versatile.... I am however totally lost.
Like I said, I want 1 or 2 great knives that will last my whole life and will do any job in my kitchen. I am familiar with makers such as Henckels/Wusthof/Shun/Miyabi and the likes but don't know how to compare them.
But I have recently discovered the Moritaka knives and was impressed by their pedigree but I fear that they might be too specialized for my need (and also I am weary of their non stainless steel blade.)
I was wondering if any of you out there might have some recommendations or cues to steer my in the right direction.
Thanks a lot,
