Recommendation for Good Kitchen Knife

I want to get my Dad a gift. He's really big into knives of all kinds, and has recently started to cook a lot more. Can anyone recommend a good knife for chopping or cutting raw meat?

8" Chef's knife.


Henckel
Wusthoff
Global


are the popular brands. I'm sure someone will suggest some others as well.

All of these are great. I'll say the obvious which is Cutco and only because they offer lifetime sharpening and they come to your house and do it for you. Hard to beat that and you don't have to worry about F'ing up your knife sharpening it yourself.

This is one of those topics that generate lots of personal opinions. None of which are wrong, just a subject people seem passionate about.

I am a fan of Shun cutlery. I love my Ken Onion Santoku. Image: http://www.jlhufford.com/images/shun-ken-onion-santoku-hg-7.jpg
I also use a standard Shun Santoku that is smaller and less bulky. They carry lifetime warranties and free lifetime sharpening. They stay wicked sharp and are fun to use.

I've heard of the Shun's before. How much do they run?

Depending on the model, you're looking at $150-$200 for a full sized chef's knife. I got my Ken Onion as an open box (behind glass) display model at Williams Sonoma for $112. Sur la Table routinely has a model or 2 on sale.

If he's into knives and has a few already get him a Work Shrap Knife sharpener

If you're thinking about giving him a Shun, this is a really nice one.
Love the way it looks; it's on my wish list.

Shun Premier Chef's Knife 177.95.....Prime eligible

8-Inch chef's knife; the perfect all-purpose knife for chopping and slicing both meats and vegetables
Features layered Damascus steel with a striking, hand-hammered finish (known as 'Tsuchime' in Japanese)
Hand-hammered finish reduces drag when cutting, keeping foods from sticking to the knife blade
Premium pakkawood handle nestles comfortably into the curves of the palm and allows for a variety of comfortable and secure grips
Dishwasher safe; hand washing and air drying recommended; limited lifetime warranty

Forshner Victorinox knives are just as good and 1/4 the price.

I have Wusthof and a Henckels and I prefer the Forshner.

Takes a little getting use to its so light.
But check out this review.

If you're in Baton Rouge go to Ducote's. They have a huge selection of knives, but best of all they have sharpeners that work beautifully. You don't need to spend $100 on a knife. If you aren't in BR find a restaurant supply place near you and buy a couple of mid range priced knives and a good sharpener.

Go straight to the source where local restaurants buy their wares. Your dad will never use a knife as much as the ones in my industrial kitchen, and I spent $12 bucks on my favorite knife and sharpen it with a $16 sharpener. Beautiful!

You are personally wrong

If a shitty knife is what you want to use, by all means go for it. Doesn't affect me

I'm going against the grain here but I don't like an 8 inch knife. Prefer a 6 inch. It's faster.
