    270 mm misono swedish suji

    I have wanted to but a slicer type knife for some time now and have heard great things about the misono swedish line and was wondering if there were other knives out there i should consider. i found a few online for about $200 and will probably pick it up unless convinces otherwise.
    anyone out there that have one that can vouch for it? i am willing to spend up to $400 for an exceptional one, any suggestions? preferably 270mm, thin-ish, not too flexible, open to any style handle and carbon

    From Japanese Knife Imports, the Gesshin Ginga is within your price range; the Gengetsu is just above your price range.

    I've used the gyutos from both of these lines and they're excellent cutters.

    Love the Swedish misono. Great geometry, f+f and takes a great edge with great patina. I used my gyuto on the line for like 4 years and its still standing, a little pitted and beaten but still standing.

    I love the Swedish steel line from Misono. I have a gyuto and a petty which have both been reliable and wicked sharp. The steel is quite reactive but has never bothered me much. They are also very easy to sharpen. I think that for the price point you cannot go wrong.

    Sharpening Misono's Swedish Carbon is a special pleasure. It's by far the easiest I know. Even faster than German 1095 by Herder or French XC75.

    +another. The dragons are great knives. Excellent balance, takes a good edge, develops a pretty rad patina over time, and it has a dragon on it. A dragon. I wouldn't say it sharpens faster than all white #2 but it can be close. I've found white #2 to hold an edge a bit longer.
