So i just moved out from my parents house a little while ago where i had the honor of using great knives all the time... now i find myself without a Chef knife that is up to the standard i am use to... So heres my question... I want a Chef knife... just a chef knife I'm willing to spend whatever. I've been looking at the Shun Classic 8.25".... any recommendations? My girlfriend who i'm now living with has every knife but a chef knife... so please don't say buy a set... or save some money... I want to waste some money... I don't have a tv, I live in a little apartment... I work all the time... I want to be able to cut through my girlfriends dull knives when they upset me... is that to much to ask?
