Hi everyone,

I was hoping for some recommendations as per the subject.

Some info about me...

I'm right handed.
I know how to sharpen.
I'm more of a push cutter.
I really like the wa-gyuto style handles.

The knife will be used in a home kitchen, cutting the standard fare; veggies, fruits, meats and with limited space (hence 210mm). I'd like it have 50/50 edge (15°) and be corrosion/rust resistant.

Thank you!

For under $125, I think the Tojiro DP Wa-gyuto should fit your needs at $80

I just read the Sugi review and I guess it's not 50/50 ground. The Tojiro is, so thats the way I would lean! Those seem to be the two choices in a Wa 210 in stainless for under $125. If you went with a Western handle: Artifex, Fujiwara FKS, Hiromoto G3 ($130), Suisin Inox, etc.

Pretty sure the DP is a flatter profile, but I'm not sure which is heavier. They are both sure to be lightweight and thin, but push cutting a lot benefits from forward-heavy and flat.

I'm really just splitting hairs for you here. Both of those are exactly what you are looking for.

Thanks everyone for all the great tips.

Before finding this forum and about gyutos, I had my heart set on a Shun Premier Chef's in 8"...But it's usually out of my pricerange, currently ~$179 everywhere (that even has them in stock).

But today I was able to finagle an excellent price of $120 and couldn't resist.

Thanks again to everyone that chimed in.
