Looking for a slicer for thanksgiving and not looking to break the bank. I'm considering the victorinox 10in slicer, Fujiwara fkm 270, tojiro dp. Any thoughts on these? Any others I should be considering?

This one is the best of the sub $100 sujis on our site.

My next choice would be the Tojiro you listed.

Thanks guys, just curious if I were to open up the budget to about 150 if it would drastically change your recommendations or if the artifex is still the best bang for the buck. I'm more concerned with performance and sharpening ease than f&f

In that range you could get a Carbonext sujihiki, which is a nice semi stainless knife, but in all honesty I had to do about the same amount of work to make its performance really pop as I did my Artifex Gyuto. Not sure it is worth the extra money. I love the edge that my Artifex takes and holds, and if you want to stick to your original budget, and have the ability and will to put a little bit of work into it, I would go for it.

No, it really doesn't. $200+ might, but not $150.00.
