Another knife advice que

Joined May 12, 2018
Hey first time posting, I'm new to the ranks. Been cooking for 3 years at one restaurant. Looking to get advice on a choice of knife. looking for a good quality French style blade and or a Santoku at around 200$ Canadian. Global is currently my leading choice but I don' like how light they are on the hand.

benuser is right about needing to know more about what your needs are.

I would add:

You list a budget in Canadian dollars. Can we assume you are in Canada?

Should your $200 (Canadian) budget include any taxes?

Do you want to only buy from a Canadian source, or are you willing to order from Japan or from some other non-Canadian source?

Are you willing to use (and care for) a carbon steel blade, or do you want to stick with stainless steel?

If you're buying this for work then don't buy something you can't turn your back on. Get something that can be maintained easily. That said you didn't mention a preference for carbon, or SS. If SS then the Tojiro DP is hard to beat at its price point. Once you open them up they are nice blades.
