to eat in or out
Having a good selection of kitchen knives makes me happy and I'm not happy.
It is time to change my kitchen and get back to enjoying the wonders of cooking. Not being a professional or in touch with what is the best knife, I need help.
A few practical sizes will be fine a knife set makes no sense.
Looking at the Mac Superior blade, but I am not sure about the round end design nor do I like the whole (to hang the knife) at tip.
Another consideration is the Mac Pro (I don't think this is stainless), the knives won't go into the dishwasher but not sure I'm ready for Carbon.
Heard go things about JCK Kagayaki brand from Koki but no one else?
Just want a middle quality, price knife that is not to heavy for a ladies hand.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You need one good cook's (or chef's) knife to start. Before thinking of brands, I recommend deciding which style and size suits you best. I use a Western style 8" knife with a stainless blade and a wooden handle. It is comfortable and lightweight, and I've never wanted another type, although I do have several other knives. Others may prefer a different style, such as a Santoku.
Is this suppose to be a poem or something? It seems to have a rhyme or something.
Anyway, here is my limited take.
Mac has a very good reputation. It is very much designed as professional kitchen knives, so they can handle some rough and tumble.
I think Mac Pro is stainless, but I could be wrong. No, they do not recommend these knives to be put into a dishwasher, but there are plenty stainless steel knives which should not go into dishwasher, like the Shun knives.... in fact many others as well.

What do you mean? You only heard good things about JCK Kagayaki from Koki, but no one else said any good things about JCK Kagayaki? First, there are four lines of JCK Kagayaki knives, which lines are you considering? Second, there are many good reviews for these JCK knives, not just from Koki. I have a JCK Kagayaki CarboNext knife, and I think it is good. I do not recommend it for you because it is not stainless.

What is middle price to you? Everyone has a different definition for middle price.
If you are looking for something under $50, then I say maybe a Victorinox knife. If you are looking for something under or about $100, then I say Tojiro DP, Fujiwara FKM, and JCK KAGAYAKI Basic , JCK KAGAYAKI VG-10.... are all good choices.
