This might be an odd question, and I hope this is the proper forum for it - new user here. Our son is graduating from a local culinary school, and we are searching for a graduation present. We thought about a three piece Japanese knife set, but after reading some of the threads in this forum I am concerned that knives might be a decision best left to the chef what with all the different characteristics, feels, etc. So, is a knife set an appropriate gift for an aspiring chef, and if not, what else would be? Thanks.
