I'm in the market for a new wa-gyuto, must be all carbon (either soft-iron clad, or mono-steel) with a narrow profile. My current knife is 43mm tall, very flat profile and nimble, which I love about it. It's also stainless, which is boring, and thick behind the edge, which just plain sucks (if I told you I couldn't mention the maker, you could probably guess which knife it is ).
240mm preferred, but willing to go up to 270mm if the blade edge is actually ~255 + machi. The height is more important to me though, the shorter the better. Any suggestions?
