If only one .....
I'd go with the 9 1/2 .
it gives you a wide range of use with out being too big or too small for most jobs.

For me, I like a bit more heft. Let the knife do some of the work. So if it would have to be one, I would go for the 270mm. The 300mm is probably too big for all but the most dedicated chopper.

If you can afford two of them get the small and the large, if you go with just one get the mid size :idea:

I believe that knives with longer lengths are more versatile. So I will go with 300mm length chef knife.

A 300mm chef knife is really very good. I am very satisfied with its performance which I bought from this store: http://www.vikingsun.se/produkt-kategor ... ivar_stal/
