hi, i love cooking, right now i have shun classic, yeah i know so main stream lol, i'm looking for the next big thing. i cut mostly vegetables and i sharpen my knife once or twice a year at a professional place, (as they say, i have no clue if they are good or not). i like the 8" size but i think a bit bigger will be more comfortable for me. the budget is about 150$~200$. i would love help in finding a better choice at knifes.
