    at $230 budget for a 180-210 gyuto you have alot of options.for example, the gesshin kagero would be a better knife with that budget in my opinion.

    What other knives do you have? Do you want to go for real carbon? Do you prefer real stainless?

    If you like the carbonext and want a smaller gyuto there's nothing wrong with having two of the same in different sizes. I have two tkc's ( similar semi stainless steel ) one measuring in at 210 and the other at 270. One I use on the line every day and the other is one of my prep work horses respectively. If you are dead set on misono I would recommend the Swedish line where even with the relatively recent price hike they are still fantastic knives for the money.

    Yup, ain't nuthin' wrong with the Swede. Given a choice of the Moly or Swedish Steel, if price didn't matter at all, I'd go wit the Swede. However, I just love the idea of a knife for about $100! And, even though people like to knock Misono, I openly think they're great.

    Again, though, if you're spending $230, there are lots of great knives at JKI that I'd consider as well.

    i have one 270 mm guyto and one petty 130 mm...My guyto is the first carbonext i ever try and i feel very good. But maybe i prefer try a real stainless. I think i can find a good knife with this budget, but i'm still a little uncertain between carbon or stainless

    my question has always been if misono knives are the best knife with this price or the price is high because they are a famous brand, maybe i can find a knife with no famous brand, but better than misono ux10. i would buy a 20-30 years knife ... so recommended moly or Swedish line? what are the difference?

    i have had misono ux10 both santoku and misono, the other lines are decent as well, good knives overall but i agree overpriced for what you get there are a lot of other options out there. But i would definitely go with a gyuto over the santoku, can do so much more plus at 180mm you cant do nearly as much with it.

    the swedish is semi stainless, takes a better edge and is more expensive than the moly.

    is it worth the extra money? i certainly think so! i ordered a misono hankotsu left handed version from mari over at korin and i'm waiting around for it to arrive.

    specially if you're gonna buy a knife just every few decades, the extra bit of investment on the blade material is worth it.

    but you'll have to care for it a bit more as it can rust, even stainless knives rust, but more so on semi stainless. they're not really carbon steel but around half and half more or less, which is why they're called semi stainless.

    the moly is a relatively soft, forgiving stainless; the Swedish carbon an excellent, very pure but quite reactive carbon, by no means semi-stainless!
