I'm looking to invest in a very good 220-240 Japanese chef knife (Gyuto) from $200-300, possibly higher and one that is low maintenance. Also need suggestions of a knife sharpening system. I'm not a professional chef so this will be for home use. I also need a sheath to protect the knife.

Here is a good knife that is fully stainless (low maintenance) and it's in your price range. I like it a lot: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohhstfugy24.html

You can get a saya for it here: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/24safimukn.html

If you want a simple sharpening system get a stone. Try this one: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shgl20gr.html

If you need some basic instructions on using the stone take a look at the videos on our site. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/knshforne1.html

There are other good knives so if you have some follow up questions or knives you are interested please post your thoughts here and our team will help you with more opinions and suggestions.

"We highly encourage our customers to ask product questions about knives here. To help you, we need a few questions answered so we can tailor a knife recommendation to your specific needs and requirements. When you ask about a knife please include as much as you can but at minimum answer these simple questions:

1. Are you right handed?
2. What type of knife are you interested in (gyuto, nakiri etc..)
3. What size knife are you looking for?
4. Do you prefer carbon or stainless steel?
5. Do you prefer a western handle or a Japanese handle?
6. How much did you want to spend?
7. Do you know how to sharpen?

Please post your requests for a recommendation as a new topic and either I or other forum members will give you their opinion on which knife to buy.
Hopefully it will generate arguments that will entertain and inform you. :mrgreen:

With no idea who you are, or what you want in a knife... it's hard to recommend one, but... :lol:

The Kanehiro <--link is an absolute all-around performer. It is carbon steel laminated in stainless so it will require a little attention, but we don't really know your preferences yet so I went with it. And this sharpening set <--link is designed just for you... 8-)

Konosuke HD Wa-Gyuto 240mm, semi-stainless: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohdwa24.html

Low maintenance and a great steel. Favorite knife I own right now.

I like the kono hd as well. The 240 length would be a good fit because they run a bit short the way they are measured. If you've heard of lazer knives this is the true lazer.

Then again without knowing more info, like Mel suggested its hard to give an educated recommendation that is exactly suited for you.
