    I'm looking for an all around "Chef's" knife for a gift. Max I am wanting to spend is ~$100CAD

    The following come well reviewed but I am open for suggestions

    https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B000638D32/...v_ov_lig_dp_it

    https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B002R1CGV6/...v_ov_lig_dp_it
    Some on zwilling.ca with imperfections. Most people wouldn't notice them and wouldn't care after a few uses. 10% off with mailing list signup. https://www.zwilling.com/ca/zwilling...rofessional-s/

    This is the same one that I have above. https://www.zwilling.com/ca/zwilling...ry_pro#start=1 A good sturdy knife for the price but a bit on the heavier side if you are used to Japanese knives.

    This Shun is a little bit more but looks nicer. https://www.amazon.ca/Shun-SWT0718-7...itchen&sr=1-14

    or maybe even this one. https://www.williams-sonoma.ca/shun-...ch-chefs-knife

    Just get a knife block from Canadian Tire. Dont need no fancy knives. End thread. LOL

    For my daily cooking, I use a Cuisinart Japanese set. On sale back then for $69.99 easier than breaking out my suit case school set

    Lee Valley actually has great kitchen knives, been using these for years. Knifewear has great stuff, without question. Whatever you do, gotta keep it sharp and often.

    Yup. Got one of these myself. Seems to hold an edge pretty well. Still want a couple good Japanese knifes though.

    Better to get knifewear sharpen it than send it in. I think it's around $15. They do a good job and can probably do better than the factory edge. The pull style sharpeners aren't good for the edges and I believe that it dulls your knife faster.
    Shit! looks like im taking it in. So dont use the pull thing at all right?

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    Is this a good enough knife to cut orange slices and apples?

    Wonder if it's a flip from Knifewear's recent garage sale. Looks cool though

    That was me actually. I waffled forever trying to find a solid 14 inch slicer for doing big briskets etc and it isn't an easy or cheap find. Online people both love and hate the Dalstrong line so I was hesitant, but in the end I caved and ordered one of the Shogun series and I must say I am not disappointed at all for the money! I have never had any brand new knife or edge tool I haven't taken to the water stones upon purchase to put a final edge on I would be happy with before using the first time, but that Dalstrong is full blown shaving sharp right out of the box which is nice. 62+ on the Rockwell hardness scale it should hold an edge well and not be a nightmare to resharpen (with quality kit), G10 handle material is nice and durable. Overall a heck of a knife for the price. Long term will tell...

    Save the pull thingy for a cheap knife. The whetstones aren't too expensive, considering how long they last, and sharpening takes only a few minutes a knife. Knifewear and Lee Valley carries them.
    Knifewear is $15 for the large japanese knives and you have to leave it with them for a few days. They sharpen with several stones/belts and polish. The Farmer's Market location sharpens too.

    They're for different purposes. I use serrated for bread. Some people find it easier to use on tomatoes.
    The big downside to serrated is that you can't really sharpen them well and you don't get a smooth cut. That's why meat slicers are so long. Ideally you cut the meat in one motion.

    Cal-don sharpening does a nice job too.
