Hi, my name is Robbie Powell. I like Japanese knives, and I'm left handed. I'm looking for something that is light, and controllable. I'm not too worried about pricing, and I do know how to sharpen knives. I am looking for an 8 inch Chef knife with pocket holes, or a 10 inch chef knife with pocket holes.

Please help me out.


Thank you,

Robbie Powell

He's lefty
He's looking for a Gyuto
240mm range
He knows how to sharpen

Would like something easier on maintenance (stainless or clad)
Budget up to 250

Something of a medium, possibly a very good laser.

When you say pocket holes, do you mean dimples or kullens on the blade? Or are you referring to something else? (Edit: I see mark got to that. I missed it when I read over the thread.)

There is no need to spend $500 to get an extremely high quality knife.
If you wanted to spend $500 though... I haven't handled this knife, but judging by Shaun's video this should blow your mind http://www.chefknivestogo.com/sata24wa.html

Likes to rock cut, no preference on height. Used to a CIA 8inch chef's knife.
