    Mizuno Tanrenjo makes a Swedish stainless layzor. Used to be quite pricy, but others have got more expensive while they have stayed the same price. Will also make to custom length (or at least would...

    Flavour of the month around 8 years ago. One of the first makers to be "discovered". A hefty gyuto, excellent geometry, tough, highly regarded aogami #2 hagane , reactive soft iron cladding. Kurouchi...

    With a high end steel like VG10, "chippy" is a function of poor sharpening and/or technique.

    Heat treat is of course important. VG10's main problem is its popularity - its not esoteric enough for...

    Yoshikane are top class. Their suji has more blade height than the Sakai knives, and more heft/stiffness. SKD/SLD tool steel is tough stuff. I've only read good things about the V2S carbon line as...

    Fwiw, Yoshikane wa-handled knives are measured from heel to tip. A 270 will be c. 270mm on the edge, closer to 290mm handle to tip - a pretty big knife.

    I honestly can't see the advantage over a...

    There's plenty of craftsmanship in a Yoshikane. The geometry is nothing short of excellent (on the two that I have owned). "Cutting performance" has everything to do with geometry and very little to...

    Btw, "easy to sharpen" and "outstanding edge retention" are somewhat incongruous. That said, you shouldn't have too much trouble with the knives above, they're just not quite as simple as good carbon.

    http://epicedge.com/shopexd.asp?id=85678 is not a fashionable knife (any more) but it's a beast.

    http://www.japanesechefsknife.com/RyusenBlazenSeries is a solid western-handled option.

    This petty at EE is taller than most, and satisfies many of your criteria.

    I believe Takeda does offer single bevel (or at least he used to), although they look very different to the "normal" kurouchi Takedas iirc, with a typical polished/kasumi finish. Drop him an e-mail,...

    Nashiji (white #1) is his cheapest line, then Maboroshi (white #1), then Denka (blue super). He also makes some kasumi and kurouchi knives iirc.

    I had a Nashiji (White #1) 240 gyuto, which was a reasonable knife for the $230 i paid for it. Core steel is excellent, stainless cladding a bonus. Rustic fit and finish was not a problem for me....

    Anyone who has a life-threatening shellfish allergy who goes out to eat at a sushi bar is an idiot, or has a mild or "fashionable" allergy.

    +1, knives not used as tools = pointless.

    Knowing Yoshikane, this thing will not need babying/be a fragile knife.

    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.
