Seems like a great deal on a knife. Not the best, but cheaper than what I normally see them go for.

A chef once said "think about how much you'd spend on a whole knife set, and spend that on one knife"

Now, where are the $9.99 knives

is there anyone here who has used a chef knife and then seriously preferred a santoku over it? santoku is the training wheels of knives... its technically easier but its so limited.

Is there that much of a difference? I use a chef's knife and I've used santoku before, but its mostly availability. I prefer the chef's knife but only because I use it the most.

After 10-years as a sous, I use my chef's knife way more than santoku

my wife prefers her 5.5 inch santoku but I like the 7 inch chef knife more. I think it's a preference thing for non-chefs?

Its a pretty big difference if you are used to preparing a lot of vegetables. The santoku requires an up and down motion to chop stuff, while you can sort of rock the chefs knife back and forth and get a much faster cut. You also would have a much harder time "scoring" an onion when you want to dice it for example. Its really only good for cleaving large vegetables due to the straight edge on it (but really just buy a cheap cleaver if you find yourself doing that a lot)

The santoku is usually cheaper to produce, costco makes ones for like $3, for people like my roommate who really doesnt cook often they work great he can just throw it away when it gets dull after a year

Ahh I see. This is a knife for noobs. I don't really remember using it but I do remember it was slower. Good for women apparently in this thread.

If you (or anyone) wants to check out a great cheap knife look at kiwi knives. They can be found for $3 at Chinese supermarkets and I assume other Asian grocers. The reviews are amazing, the knife is very sharp (but requires you to sharpen every week or so) and it's super light!

I use them pretty often with my chef's knife.

this knife regularly goes for $80, over the last year Amazon has kept Wustoff prices firm and pretty much MSRP. Look for Williams and Sonoma to have decent deals this holiday season on wustoff knives, there is also sometimes a visa checkout deal.

That being said I use my 8" Chefs knife pretty much all the time

Santokus are great for big veggies. I do use my chefs knife for most tasks though.
