    As a cook, I said off the bat wenckel. I dont want him to get a custom and be disappointed, either. Any suggestions?

    That’s the knife my wife used for 23 years as a professional chef, she bought it in New York in the mid 1980’s, it’s still in excellent condition. I sharpen all the knives in our home and this one’s a joy typically only requiring a few passes on a regular cut F Dick steel. You should see her use it.

    What price range? If you are looking at something in the same range as that Wusthof, I would maybe look at a Misono UX-10.

    What about like, maybe a little more, and the perfect knife? None of those $2000 knives but is there something else?

    I agree, we should.

    Maybe you could take a quick video, upload to YouTube and share it with us? (being serious) I'd love to see a pro use that knife.

    Hmmm, sounds like a good idea to me too, I’ll ask the Chef.
