Hello to all. I am a cook in south ga we are a little behind the times here. I was looking to up grade from wustoff. I am or was looking at Bob Kramer at sur la table until today I really did not realize there was much more for me to chose from. I really like the look of the Kramer handle but is there a better knife for under 500.00. Thanks so much Justin. I just don't have any local options.
