Never bought it on line. Sorry.
User it where the rice is not the focus and it will be flavored by everything else around it. Soups, casseroles and such. Toast some and grind it to powder for Asian dishes. Use the cooked rice as a binder for force meats and such. Chilled cooked rice is sometimes used instead of pork fat for low fat sausages. It doesn't have add much binding power but it's useful.
I think the first thing to look at is your grip.   See   And Chad Ward's video:     If you're holding a chef's knife this way, the handle matters very little. You'll likely find the balance improves too.  On smaller knives used in other grips more frequently, the handle is more important.   There are efficiency and comfort gains to be had with the larger chefs knife in the 10 inch range even if it feels awkward at first. I think it would be worth trying a decent...
I don't like sets either. Except the one to prove the rule by being the...
I can see them with various forcemeats as well. 
I've noticed over the last few years that the converted rice box dishes in the grocers aisle have transitioned to fully prepared rice in steri pouches. The market is moving towards increased convenience IMHO. Check some other grocers. It may be that your grocers wholesaler had stopped carrying it. And not that uncle Bens discontinued it
Do want flexible or stiff? There have been a few threads on them here in the past, but the boning knife is not one that gets a lot of attention as you can see.    As a home cook, I don't find a dedicated boning knife all that useful. I have one, but it's a cheap junky one from early in my knife experience.  I usually use a petty myself on ribs. Strangely, my wife prefers that boning knife to all my other ones. Not sure why exactly. Probably it matches up to something...
Buying knives for a pro can be tricky. They likely have distinct preferences. They likely have a lot of what they want. They likely mix and match and aren't looking for all the knives to look and feel the same as from a set. Also, a pro environment is theft prone for high end knives. So he might not want to use them at work.    In the past, the recommendation has been more to take them shopping and let them get what they want rather than present them with what you've...
I've never had that grade of cream to work with.
My Note 3 came with Samsungs Pedometer software (S Health) to monitor the motion sensitive chip in my phone. It's OK. I do enjoy the feedback I get from it and find it useful. The caveat is that it's sensitive to motion beyond walking such as driving or mass transit. On the daily graph, it's easy to pickout those points and mentally subtract them from the total.  I suspect the fitbit is just as overly sensitive.   There is pedometer software in itunes/Play store that you...
