    WTB 240mm gyuto

    Looking to get a new 240mm gyuto. Budget is specific to the knife, will see if I think its 'worth it' as it were. Open to just about any kind of gyuto. I'm a leftie though, and I'm in the UK so I'll have to take into account postage.

    PM me or post here. Thanks folks.

    Best price!

    Hey RDM... I know you probably won't be interested in this one, but as far as I can tell this UK site (yes UK!!) is sellng the Tojiro DP range cheaper than anywhere else I can find in the world, which is pretty amazing, especially when you consider there is zero chance of any extra charges and you can send it back for full refund within two weeks. I am probably going to buy a honesuki from these guys next week.

    As far as recos for you go, you say price depends on knife, then when one is mentioned you say it is too expensive, so you must have some price limit in mind. I know you recently bought a 210 CarboNext, so assume this is to replace that. Why don't you just get a 240mm CarboNext? Maybe if you said what it was you liked/didn't like about the CN, and also gave a serious upper limit on what you can actually spend, you might get more targeted advice?

    I recently used my friends Tojiro and was impressed with how well it cut, good price, and was easy to happen. Granted she is a home cook, but knife keeps a decent edge.
    Good luck

    Sure I do have a price limit, but I can easily break that if the right deal came along (someone offering a Suisin Honyaki or Tanaka iron wood etc at over my budget, but a good deal would still get their arm ripped off). I'm not sure if that makes sense, I have what I want to spend, and what I can spend for the right deal. The very upper I could spend is probably around 350$ plus shipping, but I'd want to be getting like 550$ of knife for that.

    I actually recently sold the CN, I only sold it because it was a 210mm. The only reason I don't want another is because of all the variety, why get the same thing twice?

    I've currently got a few knives that I'm mulling over, still looking for something to really scream to me though.

    With all that is out there this is very understandable to me!

    I get that completely. I really like the CN I bought, but now I am looking at getting some other knives (suji, honesuki maybe) I want to try something different. I know what I buy might not be as good as the CN, but want to play the field a bit. It may be that sometime in the future I sell them all, but trying them out is fun, right?
