Greetings Mark,

I've been thinking of taking my plunge into Japanese knives for sometime now and had been eyeing the Tojiro DP Chef Knife 210mm. I was about to pull the trigger when a friend suggested I ask you about Carbon steel knives.

What would be your recommendation in the sub $100 range - the Stainless or Carbon Steel? I will have no problem caring for the Carbon Steel (wiping etc) on a regular basis, so that's not an issue for me. I do a lot of home cooking and looking forward to getting a good knife recommendation from you. Apparently the Carbons hold a better edge and are easier to sharpen?

Thank you for your help,

Kunal

Hi Kunal,

The Tojiro DP is one of my go to suggestions for a good value Japanese knife. It has a durable handle, good steel and nice grind. For the money it is hard to beat. The other 2 that compete well with this knife are the Fujiwara FKM and my Richmond Artifex.

If you want to go carbon there are a number of good options in that price range. My favorites are the Yamashin white #1 and the Tanaka Kurouchi Blue #2.

The Fujiwara carbon series is a good entry level carbon knife:
