One that holds a good edge, easy to re sharpen... Be used 50 hr work weeks...

Well I just have a global chef knive and a Masamoto vg10 slicer... The Masamoto is nice and sharpens easy but doesn't retain an edge so well

i would work on sharpening the Masamoto more before getting knew knives. VG10 can hold an edge quite well, but you have to make sure there is no wire edge. watch some of Jon Broida's videos.

didn't read that it was a slicer, must be my bed time. anyway, the Ginga will likely be easier to transition to.
