Hi, hopefully this is the right category. I'm looking to buy new knifes. (Chef Knife & a smaller one) I'm not great at honing nor sharpening as I'm fairly new to it. At the moment I own a ceramic honing rod and that's it. My main cutting board that I use the most is wood, oak I believe.
I'd like to get some decent knifes for myself. I got no shops nearby which sells knifes, so I can't go and feel how it lies in my hand.
I'm wiggling between Mac & Wusthof. I'd like sharp knifes which stays sharp if you give it the right care, obviously. On the other side, I want some weight in it as well. So basically, judging from what I've read, I want to take both knifes and merge them.. :P
At the moment this Swedish site got two Mac knifes (21,5cm & 13,5cm) for 106,78 EUR down from 151,00 EUR.
Or two Wusthof knifes and knifesharpener (20cm & 8cm) for 59,21 EUR down form 86,18 EUR. Which sounds a little bit too good to me. So that makes me wonder, if Wusthof, would it be worth putting out a bit extra for the "Classic" or the "Ikon" set?
They also got this 3-set from Wusthof Classic which is not on sale for 172,46 EUR. Description doesn't mention any sizes, but it's one chef's knife, one medium knife and one smaller.
