The Takayuki hammered series is very comparable and less money: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tahada.html

Also, I think we're getting more Maruyoshi knives in soon. We have several boxes in the air so we should get them in the next few days.

Mark, out of curiosity, does Maruyoshi also produce the FH and KD series knives for Hattori?

Tomas, if you are talking a true paring knife versus a petty, the Tojiro DP 90mm Petty: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/todppakn90.html is a very nice paring at a great price. I use mine all the time at home.

The Maruyoshi do look similar to the Hattori HD. Might be the same OEM which I believe we ultimately determined was Ryusen.

The FH series is/was made by Hattori as best I understand and of course Hattori made the KD series knives.

Another good santoku in that price range is the Masamoto VG:

If non-stainless is an option:

Stainless clad at least

Adam, side note. As I know your a huge fan of the TKC, would you mind taking a look at some of my thoughts on the TKC under the customer review thread and let me know if my impressions as it relates to blade size and sharpening are probably correct or actual characteristics of the knife itself (will help in deciding if I go for the 240MM when available). Thanks in advance
