I have been using a Tojiro DP gyotu for the past month or so and would like to add a second chef's knife. The Tojiro was a good start, ignoring the fit and finish, but I would like some thing a little thinner with, perhaps, different steel. I am looking at

http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ictkcgy21.html
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/masamoto- ... 210mm.html

and

http://www.chefknivestogo.com/higy21.html

All seem to have decent reviews on the site. I am right handed and I can sharpen and maintain my knives. The Hiromoto brings the option of a carbon steel core, but I have a slight preference for mono-steel construction. Any major winners in the list or is this a case of pick one you cannot go too wrong. Thanks for the help.

Pick one can't go wrong...

BUT:
    pick the TKC <--link if you want the badass of the bunch...
    pick the Takayuki if you want the best stainless steel of the bunch..
    pick the Masamoto if you want the tried true classic of the bunch.

All of these will be a nice addition/upgrade to what you have. I would probably lean towards the TKC but all of them at damn good knives!

Yeah, really can't go wrong with any of them.....but the TKC is hands down the best knife of the bunch.

Once again I will recommend my favorite 210 gyuto -- the Takamura Migaki in R2 steel. Not in stock at the moment, but worth waiting for. Adam, I know you are a huge fan of the Kikuichi TKC, but have you had a chance yet to use the Takamura?

The TKC is a sweet knife from what I hear, but pick the Hiromoto if you want to use a great carbon steel on the edge with a sturdy stainless cladding. I recently brought my Hiromoto back into rotation at work and have been loving it!
