Jeff Mayville here.
I hope for some fresh feedback. Here goes.
I love to cook above average dishes. I am fussy with all I do. Cooking has to be pleasing to the eye and feel good preparing. I love quality and will pay for it. I also am hooked on sharpness of knives. I'm still learning and want to feel some great quality in a gyuto. I have a cheap Henkels and Chicago and they work well after my sharpening. (I'm no pro yet) I love the damascus look of a knife, but the quality has to be there too! I won't trade on quality or look. Not much selection in Toronto. Internet seems best, but I can't feel a picture :)
Here are 2 choices of beautiful knives. $184 for a set. Yoshihiro Gyuto and Petty or $172 for a Hattori Gyuto. Both seem top notch.
Any feedback would be wonderful.
