Chef BDL, I went back to website again this morning and took "another good look" and you are right. I had to ask myself a few questions .....Is this a knife I would "use" everyday ? NO Cutting ribs and things.....well , I have my butcher do most of my cuts. So , that would mean "not" a good choice for my needs. Chef de Chef is out unless you suggest another knife ???? (which I don't mind) On the other hand, I am glad you looked at the site, there was a quantity option in the box but no picture so I was not sure if they were out of stock or what ? I will call them up just them same and get the 10" Chef "Nogent" I was "relieved to say the least" when you mentioned that the French carbon are very light as well....it was getting to be a bit frustrating switching between knives so this will really make a difference for me. As far as maintaining them, I will "have" to do so. Later today when I get back I will take another look at the "K Sabatier" line. The feedback on their service was excellent. Un gros merci, à plus tard.... Duckfat: thank you for the link, I will check it later today when I get back.
