My ladies birthday is coming up and she loves to cook but hates all her crappy kitchen stuff she had in college. I have recently found out how nice it is to have quality knives and so i'm gonna get her some good knives for part of her birthday. I have Wusthof stuff and love it. I'm looking at a 7 inch sotoku ($120 typically but found it on sale) and a 3 inch paring knife, also by Wusthof. i'm also looking at Henkle (sp) knives.
Do any of you have any suggestions? Any chefs out there that have a preferred brand? I'd also like to know why you like them ("i just do" is not an answer) I like the Wusthof because of the quality of the blade, the comfort, and the blade has little "grooves" that help keep veggies from sticking to it when you chop. Thanks for your suggestions.
