I want to try out a white steel gyuto and have been looking at the Yamashin and the Goko and was wondering which one you preferred. I have your Addict in the 52100 and like how it feels and the fit and finish on it. I would like to get a white steel knife with similar build quality while staying under $200. Thanks for taking your time to review my questions.

Robert.

It's an interesting choice.

Handle: Goko
Finish: Goko
Steel: Push
Heat Treat: Hard to tell/ Push
Grind: Goko
Price: Yamashin

There's a big price difference between the two.

I currently have both of these knives for testing, and I can say the Goko is a very good knife, especially for the price. The Yamashin is very good for the price too, but it is not in the same category as the Goko. The blade core on both knives is very good, very well tempered steel.

Yeah, the only advantage to the Yamashin is the price. All other categories, the Goko wins IMHO.

However, I might offer a bit of a different approach. 52100 and White are both quite similar. Why not try a knife with Blue steel, which, albeit similar, is at least different enough to warrant an investigation.

The Richmond Laser AOS might be a good choice, but I've not personally tried it to recommend it:

Otherwise, there is the Hiromoto AS.

It's so nice to have others that have used these knives that can comment on them. Thanks.

Don't forget, the Goko's are clad in stainless...which is nice to have.
