    Thanks for all the replies. Looks like it will be a gyuto for now since I already have an old Spyderco santoku(but will probably add a nice new santoku in the future).

    240 gyuto is the standar answer, though everyone's preferences are different. As for which gyuto profile...again, it depends on your knuckle clearance/grip, cutting style and even where you like the tip, based on height of the counter relative to you elbow (seriously). Right now, I'd say my favourite profile is a Sabatier (KS), or Misono Dragon. Pierre Rodrigue's midtech has a great narrow-ish profile, with a very useable tip. You kinda have to try them out and see what works best, really.

    you may want to consider a 240mm tall gyuto with low tip!!

    Low tip doesn't lend well to rocking

    true.....but K Williams wants santoku shape & rocking isn't good for the edge, IMO. low tip gyuto still does rocking just not as well.....

    About such and such round and this or so tall. Doesn't lean too much 2 liter style, but not exactly classic coke bottle. Wait, was this question about knives?
