    I have a Wustof grand prix santoku, which I love, but see my post above regarding the LA Times review of Japanese knives in last week's Food section.

      i have a wustof, too. it's my favorite knife. ever.

        Another vote for Wustof. Love it!

      2. if you're going to get a japanese knife, maybe you should consider a japanese brand. i think mac knives are fantastic because they are very sharp and relatively easy to maintain. i think the mac santoku knife also won an award from America's Test Kitchen. i use it all the time and think it's a great knife.

          Mac Mac Mac!

          (Yes, I like Mac knives.)

          I think they're both fantastic and the best value I've seen in Japanese knives.

        2. Mine is a Wustof Trident Classic - the line that's a little less expensive than the Wustof Grand Prix - and I love it. I find that I reach for it in place of either of my Chef's knives (also Wustof Classic) nearly all the time now, except when I want to use a rocking motion for a particular cutting job.

          1. The LA Times article is still available, so read it while you can. Site does require registration.
