I'm midway through culinary school and I'm going to be starting to stage in a Michelin Stared restaurant soon where you need to be very accurate with your knife cuts and the knives my school gave me and not going to get it done.
I have a general idea of what I like...price range anywhere from $100-$230, something pretty light, something that will allow me to be very accurate and precise...i'm thinking around 210mm/8" is a good length. I think I prefer Japanese octagon shaped ho wood handle over the western but I wouldn't be opposed to a western if the knife is of better quality.
I've done a lot of shopping around on this web site and I've picked out a couple, but if anyone has any other favorites please share.

So I like 4 of the Konosuke 210mm Gyuto's:

I also like 2 of the Kikuichi 210mm Gyuto's (TKC Performance and Warikomi Damascus):

The Kono's get good reviews across the board. The Kanehiro has a carbon core (Aogami Super) which will patina. If you are OK with Carbon steel, check out the Tanaka Sekiso Gyuto's. They have D shaped handles on them, but they are convexed very nicely and cut really well.

Look at the 210mm Artifex, some of the ones with the burl wood handles have already been finished sharpened and are ready to go out of the box:

The Artifex can also be converted over to a Wa style handle, too.
