My mom is remodeling her kitchen and I'd like to gift her some new knives to compliment the remodel for Mother's Day.
I've been reading for the last two days everything I can about knives but still feel as though I'm unsure of what it is I want/need.
I was initially looking at sets like the Victorinox Forged and Wusthof Classic but was convinced otherwise.
My mom really only needs 4 knives (Chef, Paring, Utility, and Bread). I'd also like to get a Block for proper storage and was looking at the Shun Bamboo block.
From everything I read on these forums, this seems like a good brand but I'm not entirely knowledgeable about them.
What do you guys think? Are there any other recommendations you guys have?
My budget is 400 max but preferably between 250 and 300.
I don't mind buying different brands for each different type of knife (best in class) but I think my mom would like them to look the same. I chose Tojiro because I read some great things about their knives so I thought this would be the best all around set of 4.
I also like the look of Shun however I think getting 4 Shun blades would take me out of the 400 dollar price range.
Thank you so much for your help :)
