    Please explain in detail what characteristics you are looking for.

    Western or Wa-handled?

    Are you looking for it to "fall through" food, or have good release of what you've cut?

    Do you want a tall blade at the heel?

    Monosteel, san mai, stainless clad?

    If you have difficulties expressing your preferences, I politely suggest that you have no business buying a high-end knife until you do. If that's the case, buy a couple of very different knives, use them for a while and get to know what you like and dislike about them. You'll be in a much better position to spend that kind of cash on your high-end knife. To name two to start with, the Masamoto KS wa-gyuto and the Misono Swedish gyuto.

    I jumped to the conclusion that you were looking for a recommendation. Sorry.

    Devin Thomas 230mm Mystery Carbon Gyuto. I bought it from Devin when I was at his house. I also own a Devin Thomas ITK 52100 and while the 52100 is pretty great, the Mystery Carbon is just better.

    Kitaeji Shig with Marko Octagon Handle - I will update if Marko and Mario's are more better after I get them but for now the Shig is just pure pleasure to cut with and as a homey (cook), I just don't need to do more than touch it up to keep it and me happy.
