wa-gyuto recommendation

Thu Nov 21, 2013 10:29 pm

Hello,

I'm looking for a solid 210mm gyuto for under $150.

What are the thoughts of the Tanaka Kurouchi 210mm Wa-Gyuto ( http://www.chefknivestogo.com/taku21wa.html )? It looks to have a nice grind.

Any other recommendations?

Regards,
Mike

Please clarify your term "solid".

Do you mean solid as in a solid choice.

Or do you mean solid as in not clad....a mono steel knife in other words.

Solid choice. Originally I was thinking not clad but now I'm not sure that matters for this purchase.
I would like an easy to sharpen knife with a good grind.

Taz posted some good info on the Tanka ku and Sekiso a while back with some pics for reference.

I think you found my new knife! Does the 60 hardness mean it doesn't keep an edge as long?

Any other recommendation before I buy this one?

Wait to you see that Goko in person, VERY cool looking knife, cuts great too!
