    Sorry that's just not how this thing works. I agree, if this is it, save some more and get one that you may be able to stick with. Anything available at the $250 point won't be "THAT" knife I'm afraid.

    Can I get a custom for that amount? Every one I've seen is $1k or more.

    Well I knew the re handle would be about $200 so I was factoring that into my calculations. If I can get a custom for around $450/$500 then that would be even better.

    There's still 2 more knives I want to add to my collection. A slicer and nakiri because I think they are cool. First I have to get my forever knife and smooge up the hubby for more steel. He asked me tonight why I couldn't be like a normal wife and just ask for a purse or jewelry lol

    At that price range, I'm going to push for the Tanaka Ironwood. Beautiful knives with a nice handle to boot. Here's a pic I found of an etched one from the old forum.

    you have many choice of custom knife for around $~500(mostly wa-handle only)....price will rise up if you want some fancy handle! problem is loooooooooooong waiting time. Martell gyuto is good choice for western handle custom knife.

    Wait- he's weirded out that you want cool stuff that does something over stuff that does nothing except be pretty?!? (No offense to any jewelry makers on the forum...)

    you also might want to pinpoint what exactly it is you want in a knife that you feel your not getting in the misono. if memory serves the steel isnt too hard at all so it should be pretty easy to sharpen and get pretty sharp. when you say you want to get a sharper knife, well the sharpness depends on you. i like the gesshin kagero suggestion if youre going to stick to your current budget. if you can save $300 or more alot more options will open up for you.

    What makes you so sure about the western handle? A wa- would increase your options dramatically.
