    If you like 50/50 you can get a Mac Pro, that is definitely made to be a Japanese/European hybrid and isn't asymmetric at all. Was my first upgrade to old Henkels/Wusthof knives and I still am quite fond of it.

    +1 for the Mac Pro. I got the MTH-80 not long ago as a factory second on eBay at a great price (smudged kanji printing) and have been very pleasantly surprised by its performance, especially thinness behind the edge.

The food release is also fantastic, as you can see here

    Thanks steven! I would try to look around for a Tilman knife but don't really seem to have any that is available.

    Actually I do not really have a dislike for my current knives, so far most of the knives I have are made out of VG-10, just curious and want to try knives made out of other steel and see what is the difference.

    No offence taken at all. Cheers!

    I would not mind getting a Mac but it just does not sell here (Singapore) and the shipping kills me lol.

    For MAC or GLOBAL, try Amazon as sometimes there is a global shipping option. Or eBay.
