I am on Holiday at the moment in Tokyo and would like to take home a few good Cheif knifes Gyutou style. My wife is a very good cook and does the majority of the cooking she is veterinarian but i do eat fish and chicken so would like a knife that could cut through small bones and Pumpkin, onions e.t.c. We both have average knife skills but do want two very good sharp knifes. We both don't have sharpening skills either but are willing to learn perhaps on are old cheap ones to start with. I did like the look of the Miyabi knifes but have hesitation about celebrity endorsement are they a gimmick ?.Kiya is a brand which seems to have a good reputation in Japan. Hattori HD looks good as well but to be honest i would not have a clue which would be the best knives for us I do realize that it would be good to try them in our hands and see what feels best. We were thinking a 8 as our go to knife and perhaps a smaller one for fruit e.t.c we would like something that looks nice as well as i will be at home . any advice for two keen novices would be appreciated.
