Having dinner with a close friend tonight. Our birthdays are 1 day apart in April, and since we have been isolating since March, this will be the first opportunity to give him his gift.  A Shun 10" Premier chef knife. 

I bought an 8" for myself and I love it, but he is a bigger guy with baseball mitts for hands, and is usually carving steaks from much larger hunks of meat.

Love Shun knives.  

There are many threads on here about knives. They are very personal and what you like, someone else may dislike. A knife is a very personal choice. Read this https://kniferr.com/what-knive...s-gordon-ramsey-use/ to narrow down choices. My best advice would be to go to a specialist knife shop and heft them, see how they feel in your hand. You probably only need a few to start with: a small paring knife, a large paring (or vegetable) knife, a cook's knife and a boning knife. If you're a real beginner, a medium paring and cook's knife are a good starting point. Plus, learn how to sharpen and maintain them yourself.
