    Looking for a 270 gyuto

    I am looking to get a 270 gyuto. I would prefer an Octagonal or D handle but I am not opposed to a western handle. Carbon or semi stainless is preferred. I would like to keep it on the lighter side because this will be my first 270mm. I would like to keep it under $200, but I can stretch it a little bit for something awesome.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    would a hiromoto AS (non clad, full AS) please you?

    you can get em by koki at JCK even if not officially sold. and it's cheap. western handle tho.

    I guess I was hoping to get something used or slightly abused that started out in a higher price range. I have looked at most of what I can get new for this price range. Although that Solid AS Hiromoto sounds intriguing.

    well, full HiroAS is just what it claims: awesome bang for buck. you have experienced but not elite craft with super blue steel. probably very reactive blade tho if not cladded.

    i haven't tryed the carbonext series but everyone seems happy with them too. i suspect coqavin to be around the same frech forums i'm

    look at salty's sale there are very fancy gyutos (if left!) but expect to pay more than $200

    Those have all been sold except for a few yanagis and a nakiri. Thats also why I put the caveat that I can stretch higher if something awesome is offered. I would have totally bought Salty's Ealy in that sale for instance.

    Michael,

    Are you looking for something you can just beat the Hell out of?

    Tanaka on metal master has vg10 for 170. But if you go with blue #2 its 220. Its close, but keeps coming to mind when I see this thread.
