    I can't recommend anything at or under $200 that you are just going to destroy in a Chef's Choice. Maybe get a Guy Fieri??? lol

    Sharpening is half the fun of owning . . . well for most of us anyway. Sounds like maybe Ginsu is more up your alley.

    Carter's basic twin rivet is just north of 200. Stainless clad. And it's fun to use. Keeping it sharp with a stone (or two) is not rocket science. Keeping it sharper than your Henckels is an easy day.

    Not to forget the Watanabe 180 kuro uchi nakiri, blue steel, stainless clad, also around $200 depending on exchange rate.

    No need to say more on learning how to sharpen.

    My recommendation is a Terayasu Fujiwara Nashiji in stainless clad White #1. It's a little thicker, but the forged cladding is stainless and tends to run thicker because it's not ground down after forging leaving the rough finish. Unfortunately, it's about 165mm, the standard nakiri size.

    Fujiwara doesn't get enough props here because many of his knives are on the expensive side. Oh yeah. The White #1 gyutos at JCK are identical to the Nashiji line at half the price for any other forum members who think 500 bucks for a 240 gyuto is too much.

    I get it, I need to learn how to sharpen. No need to keep beating the dead horse. I think I've also decided that I don't necessarily need a 180 - there is a lot more selection at 165, and it's probably perfectly adequate.

    Thanks for all the recommendations, everyone! You've given me so many choices that I'm not really close to a decision, but I feel like I'm moving in the right direction. I just wish there was a store nearby where I could try them all!

    In addition to all those that have been mentioned, I have my eye on the Masakage Yuki.
