    +1 for semi-stainless Gengetsu. I just brought one few weeks ago & able done few comparison test with my other gyuto last week. I'm very impress Gengetsu's performance, it easy become one of my top 5 all-around gyuto!!
    here is few pictures you can check Gengetsu's profile & geometry.....

    That Yoshikane SLD gyuto is also really good and very thin behind the edge. I'm very happy with mine, though I might be a bit hesitant to go through a crab with it. If the kurouchi damascus finish is too pricey, aframes has a normal clad version that is in the 2-300 range.

    Yoshikane SLD kurouchi Damascus actually have better F/F, thinner behind the edge & feel slightly better edge retention than Gengetsu!! I recommend Gengetsu not Yoshikane because Mark76 looking for semi-stainless gyuto with better value.......

    Yeah, they are definitely expensive, but I saw on Aframes that there is a version from Yoshikane without the kurouchi or damascus that is priced at $239, so cheaper than the Gengetsu. It's odd though that Aframes has that style, I remember Maksim once saying that Tsuneo Yoshida did not/could not/would not make them without the kurouchi damascus.

    Here is the link:

    Though, it seems that they are sold out at the moment, but for that matter so are the Gengetsu...

    Not exactly a Gyuto, but really could be used to take down small trees. Mike Davis Deba
