A lot of people dn't care for extra weight of traditional Euro knives. The bolster also gets in a way when sharpening on a stone. Current Messermeisters don't have much of a bolster so if you like bolsters I'm surprised you use them. I prefer stamped (or stock reduced or sintered) Japanese knives. It seems a lot of younger food professionals, like Kwilk, prefer them as well. Older chefs may prefer forged German or French knives having been trained at a time...

Seems like a tuner is the best bet, even if the quality won't be quite as good for the price v. separate receiver/tuner. Since Saturday Morning Audio carries NAD you may want to check if they have any used NAD stereo receivers like a C720BEE or C725BEE. I haven't personally owned one but they...
