No, nothing dramatic - was just trying to get attention :ph34r:

I want to buy a special someone a super sharp, superior cook's knife this Crimbo - any recommendations? Was thinking Sabatier or maybe a Japanese knife?

I've got a Sabatier chef's knife I treated myself to about ten years ago - I love it! Think I bought it from John Lewis. If you really want to push the boat out (and make sure the knife stays sharp for marginally longer than two weeks) - buy the lucky recipient a good quality steel as well! Worth their weight in diamonds... ;)

Not sure how much you want to spend but Shun knives are very good.
They are not cheap though.

You can get them at the Japanese knife centre in Marylebone.

You can pay whatever you want for a good quality knife - the sky's the limit. Value for money well designed knifes I would recommend Zwilling J.A. Henckels.

It it's for a super sharp superior special someone cook/chef you may want to go for Shun or another big name brand. As Pupkin said they're not cheap but they'll be chopping away in the kitchen every Christmas (forever) with a huge smile on their face thinking of you. :)
