    Very appealing to a general public -- if open to carbon steel -- and a terrific performer: Herder's 1922 chef's knife.

    She will probably use a chefs knife, paring knife and bread knife, santoku, I was thinking like ,Cangshan, J.A Henkels, something like that.

    Will you be doing the sharpening on those knives?

    Tojiro DP for everything but the bread knife - get a 10 inch bread knife
