    Hello is choosing chef job is wise idea?

    1. Waking up at 4, if your getting off work at 2 pm, awesome. 2. Waking up at 4 because you have PTSD, NO. That line between 1 and 2 is the difference from cook to chef.

    What will an expensive knife give me, that a cheap one won't?

    Size matters. Switching from an 8.5 to 10" Tojiro did help me; I get theough the bag of onions that much quicker. Lent it to a new cook and she has 7 stitches though :(
