I'm looking for Sujihiki recommendations. I prefer to use this style over a gyuto for daily use about half the time. I am using the Kikuichi Elite carbon suji 270 at the moment. Good knife can't complain.
Just want to buy another. 240mm...
Up to around $300 as this will be used everyday and wont be a big deal if damaged

I believe Kikuichi makes a 240mm as well. Fujiwara makes an inexpensive suji as well in carbon. Konosuke has a White #2 Suji in 240mm.

Do you want another western handle or a wa handle?

I'm not very interested in getting the 240 of the same knife (even though i enjoy it)
I was looking for something a little better than a Fuji
I am open to wa or western. stainless or carbon

A konosuke suji would be a joy, just remember it wont be as tall at the heel because its shorter than a 270mm.
Or if you like it a tad taller, a takeda sasanoha large looks good.

Takeda makes a nice one. He calls it a yanagi but it's a suji:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tayadoedas24.html

Yea i was considering that Takeda. Seem to be a great knife
Sakai Takayuki Damascus Wa-Sujihiki 240mm?? This looks intriguing. Thoughts?
Thanks for the help

The Takayuki is a excellent knife. Nice fit and finish with good steel and heat treat. They're hand made in Sakai and I think you would enjoy that one.

There seems to be two of the suji that are labeled the same? Which one are you referring to?

This is the one I was talking about: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/satadasu240.html
They use AEB-L on that knife which is a favorite of mine.
