    Hey all,

    Currently, have a line of Wusthof classics. They are good and I absolutely love my rocking motion and a good cleaver...however, I am also looking to take my first steps into the world of a Japanese knife or 2. I do some chicken and fish prep and would love a few recommendations for the tasks.

    Cost would ideally come in under $300 for the pair. 

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi @whatsinaname, welcome to cheftalk

    Which 'pair' are you referring to? Chefs and a meat cleaver? Can you clarify on any other preferences aside from price?

    How will they be maintained and sharpened?

    If you are looking to try out some japanese knives specifically for chicken and fish I would recommend Tojiro.  They ae a great entry level brand and they make some specific knives for your mentioned tasks.  Here are a few links to get you started:

    There are other retailers but this is who I use,  That will get you started.  Beware, those 3 knives are very task specific and will differ from what you are used to.
