Hey everyone! I am looking for a decent chef's knife that won't completely break my wallet. I also need an appropriate honing rod/steel. As far as actually sharpening the knife goes, I will let the pros do that until I can afford decent sharpening materials and the time to learn how to use them. I am an at home cook with decent knife skills who has never purchased a good knife. All my previous knives have been hand-me-downs and gifts. I only cut on wood and synthetic/recycled surfaces such as the Epicurean brand cutting board. My budget is around $200 for the knife and the steel. I am up for any suggestions, opinions, advice, etc. Thanks!
