    As a Welshman, I urge you to avoid Penderyn. Both the Madeira (standard bottling) and the Port finishes are cloyingly sweet. Awful stuff (sadly), and a terrible introduction to malt whisky.

    V2 is a high-end simple carbon steel made by Takefu. It requires more care than stainless or semi-stainless, i.e. it will rust if left damp for any period of time. That knife is clad with stainless...

    Personally I would decide whether you want a wa- or western-handled knife. I would avoid soft-iron clad personally, and go stainless, semi-stainless or stainless-clad carbon.

    Have you removed the saya pin? (if there is one)

    Can't say I've ever heard of a jammed saya, even if it's friction fit. Don't be afraid to give it a sharp tug.

    The Swedish stainless Sakai knives are hard, fine grained and very easy to sharpen.

    You just described the Gesshin Ginga or Sakai Yusuke 240 stainless. Easy.

    If you're in the States I would get the Ginga in a heartbeat, and would also get Jon to do the finish sharpening on it.

    Eden Classic VG10 is good value at 32 quid.

    Other than that , i'd suggest that Victorinox is the best budget option, by some distance.

    Just about anything else is going to be poor.
