I was at a Japanese friend's house and she had several non-stainless steel knives that I loved using. I want something that will stay sharp and I can sharpen (I think I know how) I am looking at a 210mm gyuto type and maybe another smaller knife to try. Price range for each 50-150. My thought is to try a less expensive version of these type of knives and use them. Then I will know more and will upgrade later. So:

carbon steel or anything other than stainless.
210 gyuto and a smaller "paring type knife"
wa handle
I prefer a lighter knife than most people

I welcome any other suggestions.
Thanks!! It helps a husband find his wife (me) a Christmas present she really wants. I have enough fuzzy slippers.

Sharman

Hi Sharman,

There are several good choices for you in that price range.

I love this knife. We just got them and it's well within your price range. It's made with high quality carbon steel called Hitachi White #1 and it's thin, hard and has a nice shape. You can get this knife really sharp and it will hold it's edge.
Yamashin 210mm: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/yawh1gy21.html

If you want a step up this Goko is really good, hand made and has the same steel but it's clad in stainless so you get the benefit of a good carbon steel edge with the convenience of a stainless blade:

Moritaka is a great small family knife making operation. It's made with top of the line Aogami Super steel and I've sold thousands of them over the years. It's a little above your price target but you should consider it. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/moritaka9.html

If you have any others you looked at on our site and have questions about them please let me know. I've tried or at least handled every knife brand on the site.

i hope he's right handed. =D

d handles on those goko gyutos.

great price on those though. looks to be a bang for the buck kind of knife.

lest you forget your other knife lines such as:

tanaka damascus wa gyuto clad in stainless, blue core steel

http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tanakagyuto2.html

tojiro hand hammered, sk5 carbon with a d handle, no stock on the 210mm though, but 240 is in stock

http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tohaha24wa.html

recently got a hand hammered textured petty and it's awesome at cutting without having stuff sticking too much to the side. gotta say, i'm a fan of the texture and the unexpected effect of the hand hammered look.

The Tanaka is all carbon steel, no stainless in it, but my 240mm is my favorite knife out of any that I own!
