So my brother and his friends used my kyocera santoku to cut a Little Caesar's pizza that the place forgot to cut, and left the knife in the box. When they left the house, they threw the box away...
With my knife in it.
Needless to say, he owes me a new knife. And since my birthday is coming up, I'm open to some nice knives. I'm not going with ceramic again, because it won't stick to my knife strip.
Any of my SE cohorts have a suggestion? (Under 200 is my price range, but if you like the uber expensive, feel free to spout their amazingness for me to drool over)
