Hi I was looking for a lower priced carbon gyuto I was wondering if you had any recomendations? How is the Fujiwara?

A 240mm Kikuichi Elite Carbon gyuto was my first J knife purchase! The Fujiwara's are also pretty nice, too. Haven't played with the Masahiro yet. Any of those three should work well for you!

Love the profile on the fuji, still one of my favorite knives. It might be a little "stinky" while you build your patina, but once it is set you are golden.
Great balance, needs a little spine easing, but a great knife!

I was surprised at how thin the Fuji's are. I got a 270mm gyuto and 270mm suji (both carbon) for a guy who couldn't decide which one he wanted. I was hoping to get the one he didn't want, but he ended up taking both! I got to sharpen them and they take a nice edge. The Kikuichi has a little finer blade finish to it and the steel feels a touch harder, but the Fujiwara has much better handle F&F than my Kikuichi did (I bought it over 8 years ago I think, maybe longer?). Both need the spine eased and the choil too a bit, so they are even in that aspect. Both have good sized handles (at least in the 240mm Kikuichi and 270mm Gyuto/Suji), so that's a plus if you have larger hands.
I think any of the 3 would be good choices. Fujiwara is noticeably less expensive, too.
