CKTG <> If you have access to the TKC's steel, it's difficult to believe you hadn't already incorporated it into a line. The TKC & HD are perpetually OOS & at their premium price point, it seems a house line has a market share to claim.

It seems that way to me too. The CarboNext line (a JCK house line) gets recommended (elsewhere) for people looking at the TKC especially, as it apparently uses similar or the same steel. Therefore it seems like it is plausible to get access to that steel or something very similar, and as Mel says the current knives with that steel are out of stock enough that there's room in CKTG's collection for something else that uses it.

+1 for the Ultimatum. The 52100 version recently came back in stock. That knife has been on and off my list for a while now. Anyway, it seems to fit most of what you are after. I haven't used one, but given the good steel and classic profile I'm sure a little finesse on the stones can turn that blade into a serious bad ass...

If you can go about $15 over your budget you could also try the kohetsu hap40 240 that's around $215. The 210 comes in at $199.
