The Gunther Wilhem chef's knife arrived about a week or so after the
steak knives. My wife expropriated it to put under the Xmas tree.
I've only just seen and begun to use it.
It' a perfectly beautifully designed and crafted tool. I love the
balance. And the edge is as good as anything I've got. It made
Christmas dinner, and now occupies the premiere place in our knife
collection. I'm treating it with the care and respect about which
we'd talked. Your steak knives graced the table for a prime rib,
sort of a Xmas cliche but delicious nevertheless.
Parenthetically, I thought I'd ordered an 8' chef's knife. The 10'
arrived. I knew the 10' was preferred, but I'd never used one. I
was afraid of the size and the heft, fearful I'd be unable to handle
it with comfort and skill. Silly man. It handles like a dream,
better than either of it's 8' predecessors. So if I owe you a little
extra, please let me know. If there was a miscommunication, let's
not correct it.
I'd like to order a second 10' Gunther Wilhelm chef's knife for my
brother-in-law who is himself an excellent cook and prides himself in
his collection of knives. He gave me the two Globals which I
treasure. He doesn't have a 10' chef's knife either and just had a
major birthday, which I would like to commemorate. The knife would
make a wonderful gift.
