At $300, you have lots of great choices.....you'll want to narrow it down a bit.....laser, workhorse, clad, not clad, narrow, wide.....etc.

Here are some good $300(ish) gyuto's to ponder over:

Time proven, narrow profile, solid (not clad) gyuto.

Workhorse, damascus clad (not stainless damascus), little bit taller profile

Stainless clad option.....great geometry

Still have love for Takeda.....I like the narrow profile "Sasanoha" option from him these days

I would second the recommendation for the konosuke HD2. Great knives...But, as already mentioned. In your price range..you have a ton of options. $200-$300 will get you a VERY nice knife.
