Do you have any recommendations for a place to purchase set of chef's knives- a retail location (or online) that sells some great knives for a fair price?
For online retailers of knives please post a query on the General Topics board, where all online and mail order sources are discussed. Thanks.
I just bought a set of Wusthof knives from Crate and Barrel. Fortunately my friend is a manager there and got me an obscene deal. I've been very happy with my purchase.
thee in manhattan beach.
located in the shopping center at the corner of rosecrans and sepulveda, the one with macy's at both ends.
Surfas in Culver City has a wide variety of pretty decent cutlery for not too much $$$$. Maybe try some of the Japanese stores like Marukai in Gardena...I recall them having some knives when I was looking around (I ended up getting a Shun set at amazon for cheap...a costco in Oregon I went to had a shun set too).
I like that Knife store in Manhattan Beach (the one by Origins)...the staff was pretty helpful and they had a good selection....
