Hello, I'm currently looking for 1 or 2 knives, so I was thinking of finding those by myself on the internet but it was not as easy as it sounds. There are a lot of brand, a lot of knives with a lot of different reviews. So I thought about asking in a forum where people can share their experiences and knowledge. Hence if anybody has some advice about a brand, a specific model or anything else I would appriciate. I am looking for a japanese style knife, with a preference for a Petty, and a Santoku or a Gyuto. My budget is not set in stone, I'm willing to pay for high quality knives so it depends on the ratio price/quality of the knives. Ideally, 150-300$ by knives would be good, but as I said if the knife is worth it I would consider spending more. I plan to buy a new sharpening stone in order to keep the knives sharp. I hope to hear some news soon.
