    WTB ~240mm gyuto...

    A colleague recently broke the tip on her CutCo and I've convinced her to explore something better to replace it.

    Budget: $130, shipped
    Handle: wa or western is fine
    material: stainless, semistainless, or stainless-clad
    size: ~240mm. a little bigger would be ok.

    Uses it for general purpose prep, mostly veg...but some proteins.

    Anybody have something? or have something to recommend?

    Is she "righty" or "wrongy"? (hehe - couldn't help it)

    I like the Suisin Inox Western for intro to good knife. Good knife, doesn't hurt that it looks good too. Some like others in that price range. Next time I'm looking I'll explore Jon's new entry level stainless. Not hard to do better than cutco.

    JKI and Korin both have the Suisin western.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Might think about 210 vice 240, esp for a she.

    It's to replace a 240, so should be OK there. This was one of the items on my mind....thanks for the confirmation!

    i know my suggestion may be a little above her budget (with approx. 170 USD incl. shipping), but how about Hiromoto AS?

    We'll see how it goes...trying to get her into Korin to take a look at stuff firsthand.
