Since I took up sharpening, I have asked several friends if I could sharpen their knives for them. One friend had a couple of German knives from different manufacturers. None were noteworthy, but she likely over spent on them. After getting them sharpened from me, she had an epiphany and realized that sharp knives really do work better than dull ones . . .

So in wanting sharp knives, she went out an purchased some Shun knives. Of course OOtB they were not sharp enough (even she was disappointed) so I sharpened them for her and she was happy again (since then, I have sharpened them a second time for her).

Ok, so now with my question . . . The Shun knives are ok and they look nice, but the longest one is probably in the 165mm range. She likes to cook but likely does not have any knife skills and that is probably why she purchased shorter knives. I am interested in a STAINLESS Guyto in 210mm range with a Wa handle.

I am thinking something like this (I want to keep costs down since this is an experiment by me to get her into a better/more capable knife).

She is not filthy rich but wealthy enough to afford what she wants in life, so a little bling factor is good in this case. However, I am not wealthy to afford everything I want, so I need that balance between quality, bling, and cost . . .

The Sakai you linked to would be a good knife.

You could probably consider the Goko, if she's at least careful with the knife.....it's stainless clad carbon:

There's the Richmond Laser:

But it's a laser and laser's are their own breed. :)
