Which Knife?
 
OK......... what's the hot ticket on a good chopping knife these days? I'm looking to slice & dice fresh garlic, parsley, etc., as well as some heavier veggies like carrots, potatoes, squash, etc. My current knife is excellent for meat, but a bit heavy for finer chopping.
What say you?
Thanks.

Victorinox knives are worth looking into - well regarded and reasonably priced

I’m a Henckels knife fan from way back.

I have a Henckels and Wusthof collection of way too many knives, but I use each one for s specific function.

They are surgical instruments for food. :D

It sounds like you need a good chef's knife or santoku, of which there are many to choose from.

If I were to buy only one, I would get a 10" chef's knife. If you already have one, I would get an 8"chef's knife. I have 6, 8, 10 and 12" chef's knives. Some people like santokus because they are lighter than a chef's knife and have a thinner blade than a chef's knife and you might be one of those people who prefers a santoku, but I prefer a regular chef's knife for chopping veggies. The chef's knife blade is designed to cut with a bit more of a rocking motion than the flatter santoku.

In recent years, I have a slight preference for the Wusthof.

This Henckels 7Ē Santoku Chef is perhaps my favorite because itís light, decently balanced, and stays extremely sharp (of course I do tend to obsess about my knivesí edges).

Even though this is their cheaper series, I find I reach for it more than the other Henckels I have or even my trusty Classic WŁsthof 8Ē Chef that Iíve had forever.

You can find these for less than $60!

I was given a Henckels knife by my sister as a present and all it did was corrode... What did I do wrong? Or was it a fake?

Thanks for the info. After shopping around on the internet I ordered an 8" Zelite Infinity VG10 (should be here Thurs). Could only find the Henckels in stock in 7" or 10" and I wanted 8". Plus, I need instant gratification on this. ;)

This is what got me started. Chopping the garlic and parsley with a heavy 10" blade was a PITA (as always).

Ron - you posted the Cutco as I was ordering. However, I did order their 4" paring knife as I need a better one of those, as well. Thanks.
