Stainless
Wa handle prefered
100-500

I have heard good things about the Takeda AS stainless clad. What are your favorites? Thanks, Jonathan

Jonathan-
When you say "hard", are referring to stiff(little to no flex)?
We each have our own preferences, but are you certain you want a 240mm slicer?(most find 270-300mm the optimal length for a slicer)
Suji and Yanagi are very different animals, what are your intended uses for his knife?

Takeda's are a classic and are very nice knives, but they typically have a bit of flex as they are so thin

I am right handed um I like to stay under 250 dollars, I am right handed I do not know how to sharpen that well and I would love a Japanese handle.

More importantly than the look of the knife i am more concerned about the durability of the blade. How well it holds its edge, if it rusts, how the metal reacts to produce.. Ie. Oxidation of lettuce.... And how easy it it to hone the steel.

This Takayuki Ginsan Damascus is a really good knife. It's over what you want to pay but it's worth it. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/satadawa24.html

Jonathan,

I would agree with Jeff's recommendation for your price point. I just made a custom handle for that knife for a customer.....check out my posting in the Photos forum. Being a customer knife, I did not use it in the kitchen, but I spent a lot of time with it and really liked it. Think it is a good value.
