Carbon versus stainless used to be a bigger decision as stainless steels used to be absolute crap. Today, there are many great stainless steels that are very similar to carbon steels and can be better depending on what stainless we are comparing to what carbon. Today, I'd only choose carbon versus stainless if I wanted something specific.....if I wanted a patina, I'd get a carbon.....if I wanted no patina, a stainless.....or if I wanted to try 52100, I'd get that (which is carbon).....or if I wanted to try AEB-L, I'd get a knife made from that.....does that make sense? I wouldn't necessarily say "I want a great knife, so I need to get carbon".
That said, if you want a great western handled gyuto.....buy a TKC and have a nice custom handle put on. This is something I do, but please don't look past that as me simply trying to get work.....it's not.
I keep myself well more than busy enough these days with that hobby. It truly is a great knife and a custom handle just makes it that much better IMHO.
Otherwise, the Tanaka Mark recommended is another great western handled knife.
Another good choice if you wanted a carbon knife (the two above are not carbon, the TKC is semi-stainless and the Tanaka is powdered steel) is to get a custom handled Misono Swedish. I really like that knife, and the dragon engraving is actually pretty fun.
There are also a lot of great wa (Japanese style handle) handled gyuto's available. The Tanaka Damascus gyuto's are great...gotta show love to Takeda as he's an incredible knife maker, any thing from Konosuke would be incredible......
