you say, "Wusthofs are excellent knives, if that's the kind of knife you want. But Wusthof is hardly unique.What makes up a great knife for professional chefs? Many other major German, Swiss, and US makers make similar knives of similar quality and sell them for similar prices...."What are theses companies and what are the models of knives? I am a chef and need great cutlery for the restaurant and private parties with GREAT SHARP EDGES THAT CAN BE MAINTAINED, SO WHICH BRANDS SHOULD,SO I NEED THE BEST CUTLERY JAPANESE(EASTERN STYLE OR WESTERN STYLE) "Although Shuns are still quite popular with American professional chefs they've lost quite a bit of their cachet with people who really know knives. While it's not fair to say that Shun makes a lot of bad knives, but compared to any chef's knife in any of Shun's various lines, you can always find significantly more for the same money somewhere else."
