    Help knife and stone

    hello i want to buy a knife and a stone for my best friend, he is a professional chef like me. I have a Misono UX10 and a carbonext and he likes a lot. My idea is to buy a VG10 and a stone 1000/4000. I had thought of a Gyuto 210 mm, but has a global oriental knife, so I think that a Japanese slicer 240 mm perhaps it would be better. My budget is 150 Euros, about $ 200. If I spend a little less is better )) any advice?

    As you mention a budget in euros I guess you live in Europe. To avoid high shipping costs -- and perhaps custom duties -- have a look at
    Japanesechefsknife.com.
    A Fujiwara FKM 240 (stainless) or FKH (carbon) would be my choice. VG-10 is a great steel when properly heat treated, or particulary nasty when not. I can't suggest others than the JCK Kagayaki and the Hattori FH, but both are largely beyond your budget.
    Have a basic Naniwa combination stone 1000/3000 for €35 with
    edenwebshops.de, .fr or whatever.

    Well, if you're thinking about offering a UX-10, nothing wrong with that. Have a look at the shipping conditions though, and expect a bill by your national customs as well. Generally, we see them highly overpriced, but this seems very tempting.
    I would add that a 240mm is much more appropriate to a pro use.

    A good knife is worthless if you cant maintain it. Nevertheless good deal through rakuten global. Where are you located?
