Chef's knife recommendations thread

The wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas last night and I drew a blank. Got up early this morning to start grilling and realized I really need a great chef's knife. I like the look of Damascus steel so down the Google rabbit hole I went.

Yes, I want it to function well. However, I also want it to look cool.

I found this one from Forsetti Steel:

It's some collaboration they have with some dude I've never heard of, but I like the way it looks.

Anyone dealt with this company before?

Forseti imports their stuff from Pakistan..they aren’t a manufacturer.

I don’t need another chef’s knife in my kitchen, but if the mood ever struck, I’d be looking at Montana Knife Company.

Those guys are out of every single product except a cutting board and some spice mix.

I had a Damascus steel chef’s knife and a Bowie knife custom made last year by a guy in Pakistan. Both are beautiful and razor sharp, but Damasus is prone to rust. I never really use the chef’s knife. Paid $340 for the pair with sheaths.

If the knife doesn't have the type of steel proudly displayed on the blade, it's trash.

My chef's knife is a Wusthof, but my daily user is an asymmetrical right handed santoku from Misono.

How do you guys sharpen your nice knives? I have a Shun but don’t want to mail it in to be sharpened.

Want. You want a really great chef's knife. And, there's nothing wrong with that.

Ask her to find one made by a local artisan rather than a store bought one. Support a local smith and it'll have a much better story fir when you hand it down.

I have two different grit whetstones that I learned to use. I think it's well worth learning how if you have nice knives.

I'd love to buy locally if I could find one. Tried Google and nothing really came up in the San Antonio metro area.

I have a set of Japanese whetstones. I do use a guide that I got online because I can't hold a consistent angle for shite.

Tormek but you have to have other things to sharpen to make it worthwhile.


To the OP I have long said nobody needs anything better than a Dexter Russell and they cut an awful lot of the food in Michelin star restaurants. That being said I love my Zwilling 1731. It isn't bespoke but the steel has a perfect balance of ease of sharpening* with a 12 degree double bevel edge and edge retention. I also like their Kramer SS Damascas knives.

*I tend to like kitchen knife steel to be right at 60HC softer and it dulls too quickly even though you can get a sharper blade and harder begins to be a PITA to sharpen.

Agreed. My Dexter Russell might actually get the most use. A flexible boning knife, a cleaver, and a bread knife are areas where you don't need to spend a ton of money.
