Wa Gyuto high end recommendations wanted.

Hey Mark. Thank you for the quick response. Great customer service. I got to go to the restaurant to take a picture but we are closed today so ill send it along tomorrow. As for the other questions ill get right to it.


1) I am right handed
2) I have a lot of experience with Japanese knives. I have a little side business sharpening for other cooks I know. I do 50/50, and most western style japanese angles and knives. I have started sharpening single bevel knives for people.
3)ill cut either way depending on what I'm doing. It's a good question. I haven't really thought about it before. i guess I push cut more. Especially if I'm making perfect cuts
4)I want a Japanese handle
5)300$-500$ or so.eventually getting a slicer and a petty so I can just carry 3 knives
6) please post this if you want.
7) I guess I'm looking for stainless. Good edge retention. Sharpenablity. 240 mm or 91/2 inches
Look foreword to hearing from you.

For those of you lurking that want a recommendation, this is how to ask a question. It provides me with everything I need to give some informed suggestions without guessing.

I love this knife for you: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ko24stwawebh.html

It's a sweet looking knife, stainless, easy to sharpen and you can get it very sharp. Will hold a steep edge too. Fit and finish separates this knife from many others in this category and the handle is awesome.

It doesn't get much love anymore, but the Suisin Inox Honyaki's are fantastic:
