I believe i emailed you about 3 years ago asking about some knives And you gave great feedback. Well its been a while and i still havent gotten a new one i just dont like making the wrong decision. To give you some back round on the use i will be putting it through i work about 70 hours a weeek in the kitchen with light to heavy prep daily. I have always used german knives but want to really invest probably prepared to spend around 300 dollars or so I have looked at a few knives and maybe you could suggest a few or let me know if im headed the right direction. I dont mind maintenance but i dont want to have to baby my knife day in and day out i barely sleep as it is

Nashiji 210 Gyuto
Really like the shape from the picture and the look.

Masakage Koishi gyuto 240mm
Same as above

takeda gyuto

Takeda has a short gyuto that we sell that might be right for you. He makes great knives. Also the Kanehiro offers a good solid workhorse knife that is clad in stainless steel making it a little easier to care for.

ALI <> As previously posted, I recommend a stainless-clad knife for you. You state you don't want to baby your knife... get a stainless-clad. Also, as you are in a pro setting, I would recommend a 240; the 210 is a bit limiting for you.
