    Need help in choosing a knife)

    Hi all!
    So I get a little money, and I want to buy a new gyuto ,
    the problem lies in the fact that I have a few knives
    at the moment: Carter HG, Shigefusa, Masamoto KS(my favorite profile),
    up to this point have been
    DT (stainless) Konosuke HD, Takeda ,Hatorri HD
    I want to buy a new gyuto, something interesting and impressive .
    I considered buying from mr.Itou R2, but this is not available .
    I looked at him just because of steel (I do not like damask coated)
    I'd like to hear your advice guys! Any information will be very useful for me.
    There is one but, I'm looking in the direction of the forged blades (hand) are not cut from a strip of steel.
    I believe that when smith creates original shape blade during forging, it is born soul) I can a little old fashioned, but that the cockroaches in my head))
    Waiting for your advice))) Oh yes, I'm counting the amount of <$ 600
    Thank you all!
    and forgive my French)) Google translator)))

    I'd go carter, shigefusa for makers listed otherwise custom if your going spend that kinda cash.

    Shig is a workhorse but a pretty one that cuts like crazy.

    Carter never had one but have heard they are great cutters as well.

    Customs pick about any maker here and you won't be disappointed,

    Mike Davis- blend of steels, amazing hamons, single bevel knives
    Marko T- awesome craftsmanship and woodworking, 52100 carbon mainly
    Mario I- using cpm154, great profiles and heat treat

    Others are just as good those are only ones I have experience with but either you would be more than happy!
