Hi Mark

I have a purchased a few knives off your web site some for me some for my wife and others for friends and family. I have a couple of Tojiro DP knives (great) a Richmond artifex (great) and a shun fillet knife (great). I was looking at the Tojiro DP gyuto 210mm or the Shun Sora 8" chef knife as a next purchase. I am purely looking for an opinion on which you would recommend as they are similar price and function.
Thanks
Gilbert

I'm hoping some others will jump in and chime in with their opinions.

My vote would be Tojiro but it's close.

I really like the Shun blade. I just don't care for the handle. The Tojiro handle is not that exciting but it feels better in my hand.

I'd buy this before either. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kastwagy210.html

If I have to vote for one of the others I'd go Tojiro DP.

I like the Tojiro better, but the Shun actually has a thinner blade (handle aesthetics aside). :)

I haven't seen the Shun in person, but I love my Tojiro DP 210 :-).

Given that you have experience with the Tojiro I might lean toward the Shun just to try something new.

Perhaps a Fujiwara FKM: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fufkmgy21.html
