[Bed Bath And Beyond] Zwilling Pro 7" Chef Knife $56

https://www.bedbathandbeyond.ca/store/p ... illing-pro

Zwilling Pro, Wusthof Classic, Global... I have been reviewing and learning about quality knives for a few weeks now trying to make the right choice but was very hesitant in spending so much money on a knife that may or may not be the right fit for me... I purchased this as a sampler and though it may not be the 8", I am very impressed with the weight and quality(holy sharp) and now have a better idea what the Zwilling Pro is about. For me, spending sixty bucks to find out is an investment. My understanding is the Wusthof Classic is very similar to the Zwilling Pro so I will keep my eye out for a Global G2 as it is suppose to be lighter which the better half may prefer.
Note: I applied the 20% off one item coupon which brought the price down....

Have you used knives of that / similar profile before?

(I don't know any German-made mass production knife under $200 MSRP that's sharp out of the box)

I own this knife and am very happy with it. This is a good price with the generic 20% off BBB coupon, cheaper than what I got mine for.
Remember, don't be a toxic drama queen or someone might not post a great deal. Be respectful and we all prosper.

It's a great price, that's for sure.

The more style you use / try, you'll find out what works for you, your kitchen / style of cooking. Enjoy.

You can also try going to a knife store, and try out different ones. (Rough guideline for a decent knife store: They have in-store sharpening service, by hand + whetstone. They import knives globally, from brands that The Bay doesn't have.)

For what style of cooking / cutting / slicing / chopping?

Or just a general purpose chef knife?

How tall are you?

(it has to do with the length of the blade, rocking / lifting the knife on its tip...and arm up and down)

Does she have a preference on weight? e.g. What would be her response if you were to buy her a cast iron skillet to use, vs an aluminium one?

Honestly, We are not pro. I do know that We bought some cheap collection back then. And we are looking to upgrade everyday chef knife in a average budget. She cook almost everyday. Any good quality not too expensive would be appreciating for us :)

Maybe this:

Or this:
https://www.globalcutleryusa.com/knives ... ic-g4.html

For someone who's 5foot5, I would avoid 8 inch chef knives...so going with 7 instead. Both have a fairly flat belly portion, but one is flatter than the other one. Also notice where there handle will end up as it's flat on the belly. Also, depends on how much she likes to rock her knife, one might be more suitable than the other when you look at the front curvature. With the Global knifes, you don't have to worry about any dirt / skin cells trapped in the handle / grip over time.

I don't want to use a whetstone (!). Is this too good a knife to use with an electric sharpener?

I cook a lot and have tried a variety of knives (Victorinox, Henckels Four Star, Global, etc). Honestly if you are not a pro cook, any of these options will be good. I prefer to spend less on a lightweight blade, so my recommendation would be the Victorinox. My most used knife is actually the Mercer Usuba knife. The shape is perfect for veggies, it's lightweight, and comes sharp. At $25 right now it's a no brainer for a beginner knife. You can (and will) upgrade later, and there's no point spending hundreds of dollars before you know what you like. Better to buy a cheaper knife and a whetstone and perfect your sharpening skill. Anyways, here's the link for the Mercer.. I think the Victorinox was linked earlier in the thread.

I'll be taking the advice and take it to a knife store to sharpen. It's for personal use so can't see it needing a lot of professional sharpenings in a year. Better than me screwing the blade up..lol
