    Hey, I'm cooking since about half a year now and I thought it was about time to get an actual knife, I am a student so Im on a budget and sadly can't afford any high end knifes.

    I will need the knife mostly for coping of vegetables, onions tomatoes etc. and meat.

    Are there any good options for under 50$?

    And would you also buy a sharpening tool, when yes wich?

    Im sorry for all my questions, Im just a bit overwhelmed with a ll the options there are

    Thank you!

    What length of knife are you looking for?

    For under <$50, Victorinox 

    For a little over $50, Tojiro DP or Fujiwara FKM

    Richmand Artifact from CKTG is a good buy just over your $50 mark.

    The Artifex I would rate as more likely than not to come with huge bevel shoulders and not particularly well ground going all the way to the edge. I would not recommend for someone who isn't looking for a project knife. It takes hours of work on the stones to cut like a Tojiro DP OOTB
