Well, first welcome to the forum. :)

Second, White Steel is not a stain resistant steel (what we refer to as carbon steel) and Silver #3 is stain resistant. Two opposite ends of the spectrum truthfully.

Not knowing your budget, this is a great carbon (White #1 in this instance) steel gyuto:

Tanaka Sekiso Damascus ($200), Moritake Supreme Damascus ($414 though), Fujiyama Konosuke White #1 or #2 or Blue #2 and the Takeda 270mm all come to mind for a 270mm Carbon Gyuto with a Wa handle.

Then get the Tanaka Sekiso :) I have the 240mm and it's awesome!! Replaced all of my other gyuto's as my go to knife and I will often grab that instead of a Nakiri for veggies, too.

Try the Moritaka supreme 270 gyuto. It's a great knife, hand made and fun to use with excellent steel.

No, the Takeda Sekiso aren't thin knives (Lasers), but they are incredibly thin behind the edge and have a lot of convexing to them, so they slice really well.

On the left is a Kanetsune AS clad in stainless 210mm gyuto, which is incredibly thin all around. To the right is the Tanaka Sekiso 240mm.

Spine shots on both, Tanaka on the top, Kanetsune on the bottom:

The Tanaka handles are D shaped handles. One of these days I will rehandle mine, but I haven't been able to stop using it yet long enough to do it!
