Marc,

I want a gyuto 210mm western style handle and not a damascus blade . I cook for my family almost daily. The Masamoto HC 5021 appears to be an excellent choice. I have no problem with maintenance. Can you recommend any other knife that I should consider?

Thanks again,
Lance

Hi Lance,

There are several I like better than the Masamoto HC. Here they are. Nothing against that knife but there is a lot of good competition in the 150-200 price western gyutos on our site.

I strongly recommend the Takamura Migaki 210 in R2 steel. Excellent fit and finish, beautiful Western style handle, light and nimble and just wicked sharp out of the box. It holds its edge forever and goes through food like it's not even there. Worth every penny of its list price of $235, it's a steal at the sale price of $175.

Buy it. You'll love it.

Mark,

I like the Kikuichi Performance TKC Gyuto 210mm that you suggested. BTW, will $300.00 get me a more superior knife?

Hi Lance,

Give the TKC a try. If you love it you can have one of these guys put a custom handle on it and then you'll have a great knife.

I'm going to throw my weight behind the Takamura! I love it my GF shipped it back out to me at The Greenbrier (she didn't feel right using it at home) and I keep finding myself reaching for it again and again
Excellent edge
Excellent fit and finish
GREAT at the 175 price point and I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up at 235. For the sale price Takamura wins!

I'm with Adam on this one, TKC all the way. Being a home cook jumping up to $300 isn't going to mean much.
