Opinion needed on Knives
Okay, I am looking for a chef or santoku knife as an upgrade to my Faberware Pro forged chef knife.
I know all about the Forschner tested by ATK, and I can get one delivered for $23. Cannot find one locally though to try out.
I tried the following Wusthof knives:
- classic 8" chef
- classic 7" santoku
- cordon bleu 7" santoku
- gourmet 8" chef
- gourmet 7" santoku.
I tried otheers too, but I like the look and feel of the Wusthofs the best. Ebay has the best prices on the classic line, but am worried that I may get a "used" knife advertised as "new."
ATK "highly recommended" the Forschner, and "recommened" the gourmet in their 8" chef knife test. I can get the cordon bleu 7" santoku for $63 on amazon, but cannot find reviews of it Only difference between the cordon bleu and the classic: thinner blade, no bolster.
I can get the classic 8" chef or classic 7" santoku on ebay for $60 delivered.
What what you buy if you were me?
