    How can you guys tell him It's weird with no idea where he works, who he works with and the type of vibe at his workplace. I've gifted a knife or two when money wasn't a concern, I've sharpened knives of co workers, I've let people borrow knives, I love spreading the knife gospel when I can.

    Easily, I just did. Sounds like you're a great guy, the most I do is sometimes bake or help him haul something in my truck. He makes twice as much as I do, why would I spend $100-200 on him? I know what my coworkers would say, but I'll leave that to your imagination. Then again, I am in the military and there are rules against that.

    I see what you're saying and how it could be strange.
    It's different from kitchen to kitchen though, I've worked with chefs who I wouldn't even share a recipe with but I've worked with others who have held raffles to raise money on my behalf while I was out of work. Too many variables IMO to say it'd be weird in all cases. That's the only point I was trying to make, apologies if it came across any differently.

    You guys worry too much about what other people think.... seriously though who cares. This was a question about knives not work environment.

    and ya our kitchen is very different, we have 90% of a young crew who all went to culinary school together and are good friends, plus our chef is also a part time instructor at the culinary school. We all usually get jackets or something from him/owners for christmas so i figure that itd be something nice to do since they are good to me.

    I wouldn't spend 200+ on a knife for him as i can't afford it but if i can find a decent one for about 100 or less than ya sure i can spare that.

    I'd buy a knife for my boss. It is a little wierd to spend money on someone who gave it to you in the first place, but a gift is a means of defining a relationship--by not giving a gift, you are basically saying "you are the guy who gives me money", and by giving a knife you are saying "you are a cook, whom I work with and notice".

    Fujiwara. Just get him a Fujiwara. It's cheap, and not VG-10.
