Good luck on your knife hunt.

If I had to chop hundreds of anything, I'd use a food processor.

Another good choice in a 4" blade:

If money is no object, try this slightly larger one:

I have some of these kikuichi knives
http://www.knifeoutlet.com/kikuichi.htm
http://knifeoutlet.com/shop/10Browse.asp
I have most of them that are down in the middle of the page. The wooden handled ones at about $100.
I like this one fairly well. http://knifeoutlet.com/shop/10Expand...oductCode=KIUT I have another that I like better, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. It is similar to this vegetable knife but has a wider and thiner blade (whoops, that doesn't make sense does it? wider and thiner? wider blade I suppose but a thin edge). It is ideal for thin slicing of veggies.

I have the deba fish knife too. I like that because it has a lot of weight at the top of the blade to make for easier pressure on the knife if you are cutting something thick.

Maybe I should go take some photos of my knives. That might be more helpful than trying to describe.

Here's my collection.
2 photo is the two veggie knives. The bigger one is my favorite. Very thin blade but, like I said, I couldn't find it. We're happy with the smaller one though too.
The last two photos are the deba fish knife. We don't use this all that often and as you can see, has developed rust from not appreciating it.
Carbon steel takes care, like most things in the kitchen. Wash and dry it right away, then we apply some oil very lightly to prevent moisture getting in. Frequent sharpening. Most of the time, I prefer to use my cheaper messiermeissers (sp?). Someday, I will get henkels. Maybe after the kids go to college.
