Love your shop, can't wait to buy a new blade!
Need a bit of assistance. I'm looking for a new 210mm gyuto and I'm having a hard choosing. I'm looking for a westen style handle, high carbon steel content, and a thin blade at around $200. So far I'm considering the,
Masamoto HC Carbon Steel 210mm Gyuto
Konosuke HD 210mm Gyuto
Hiromoto AS Gyuto 210mm
I use my knives professionally and my go-to knife these days is a Dojo Nakiri, due to the sharpness, edge retaining qualities and its light and compact size. It's also made me want new, more carbon steel knife.
I also found this Sakai Takayuki on ebay and I'm wondering if you sell it or could give me any info on it? I didn't see it on your site,http://www.ebay.com/itm/Japanese-Sakai- ... 560wt_1163
For some reason, it really caught my eye. I love that it's blue steel #2 (the dojo made me fall in love with it) and is around 63+ HRC (I emailed and asked).
Thanks in advance for your help.
