This should be a cook’s best friend, pantry/kitchen staple. I am not a knivesman. Meaning I have no formal training chopping, slicing, and dicing, but I manage to get the job done. These two knives were a recent gift from my youngest son. They have changed my world! I now feel as if I can chop, slice, and dice like a pro. So my recommendation to any of you who love to cook… Check out the Wusthof Classic Ikon #4176/17cm and the Japanese Classic chef’s knife “Shun” #DM0706. They will change your life.
