She had her personal knives stolen a while ago, and I wanted to help her out. She also interviewed for an online show where chefs go head to head to win food prep contests. I bought the pair of knives for her, and she was thrilled! By the way, CKTG will let you get the 8-inch chef knife instead of the 10-inch chef knife, and that is what I did.
I sharpen knives professionally, and when the pair arrived, I checked them to see if they needed any fine-tuning of the cutting edge. Both the paring knife and the chef knife were so sharp out of the box that I did not need to touch them to my sharpening water stones.
My personal preference is carbon steel, but these stainless steel knives will not require quite the same level of care to avoid rust. My friend is just tickled pink to have real knives again.
