    Hey jimbob, for your A, B, C requirements, budget, and what you have already had, I would steer you to this Ashi Hamono Ginga carbon sujihiki 270mm:

    Listing is slightly wrong I think because there is a full stainless version listed here:

    i used to defend moritaka, but not anymore. especially now that their gyutos and kiritukes are well over $200. keep looking, you'll find something better for the same price. zakuri knives for instance, are alot nicer and basically the same steel options with much better kurouchi finish.

    Thanks for everyones help! I might hold off a bit as i won a mac ultimate knife last night and am going to see if i want it, otherwise the budget is increased! Which means many more hours researching knives, damn.

    I know, I was just using him as an example of a good retailer with a good returns policy

    Yep. Pretty big blade because of the taller profile height.
