I am new to this forum. I am a stay-at-home mom (daughter of a chef and family members own restaurants) and I am looking to buy a really, really good block set of knives. I am leaning towards the Wusthof brand. Does anyone here own mid-priced (up to $400) block set of Wusthof's are are really happy with them. I personally like a lightweight knife. I have small hands and if the knife is too heavy it's not good for me. Any advice and suggestions would be appreciated. I am limited to the stores near me where I can actually go out and hold the knifes since they don't carry a large display or you can't take them out of their boxes to look at. I will be buying online so I need to know which type would work best for me in terms of weight. I would also like a nice comprehensive set (w/ a Santoku - which is my favorite type of knife). Also if anyone can guide to me where to buy - that would be awesome. Thanks for any and all replies.
