    looking for a first real chef’s knife. I live in Canada so the selection is quite limited. Trying to decide between the Mac mbk 95 and Tanaka blue#2 Damascus. Open to other suggestions as well. I am a home cook. Budget 200-250$. I will appreciate all the help I can get. Thank you.

    Between those 2 the Tanaka is a no-brainer.

    Would you be interested in non-stainless?
    Much easier sharpening.
