How does Kohetsu SLD Santoku 170mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohetsu1. ... 5ja8fldWzt compare to Sakai Takayuki Damascus Hammered Santoku 180mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/satadahasa18.html i like these two knifes and of course i like Maruyoshi HD Santoku 7" and is it worth extra $35

I prefer the Kohetsu SLD steel over the VG10 of the other two. I think the Sakai Takayuki Damascus will give you just as good a knife for a better price than the Maruyoshi HD.

+1 on the Kohetsu SLD, unless you require a Western handle. The SLD is a great performing knife. I like it a lot.

Well my decision is one of these 2 or perhaps 3 knives Kohetsu SLD Santoku 170mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohetsu1. ... 5m3qvldWzu and Tanaka Damascus Santoku 165mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tanakasan ... 5m4DPldWzs i need some info from experts on the difference of these two knives .One more thing more i read on this forum more i like Gyuto knives especially this one Takamura Migaki R-2 Gyuto 210mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/takamura. ... 5m24fldWzs now i'm confused Santoku vs Gyuto price is $200 what i want to spend could be little more if its worth it.

Tom, that Tanaka you list is a fully reactive carbon steel core, iron clad knife - no stainless at all, just so you know.

The Takamura 210 Gyuto is one of the best performing knives on the CKTG site. Great stainless steel that has high edge retention, great F&F, thin, light, nimble - it's awesome! A 210 Gyuto is a bit more versatile that a shorter Santoku, plus it's got a more pointed tip, making detail work easier, think doing a brunoise of shallot. It's longer length makes rock chopping/cutting a little easier, since you don't need to lift the knife handle as high as you would on a shorter Santoku.

That said - if you want to keep the cost down, I'd pick the Kohetsu SLD Santoku over the Tanaka. It's all stainless and it will have nice edge retention as well. The SLD is pretty easy to sharpen, not as easy as the Blue #2 carbon in the Tanaka, but it's not bad at all to sharpen.

Tom, I'd let your wife try the Takamura, it's light, nimble, and the handle is not too large. She might really like it. You can peel potatoes and like w/a Gyuto as well. If you're talking in-hand paring/peeling, a true paring knife works best IMO. Or a veggie peeler like this: http://www.messermeister.com/Fine-Edge-Swivel-Peeler/.

Mark will get more, just put your email on the wait list on the product page and jump on one when they restock. These tend to sell out pretty quickly - for good reason :-). It will be worth the wait - I promise.
