    Inexpensive ~210 wa gyuto

    Hi knives folks!

    Traveling over Europe I'm being struggling with the knives in those places where we stay, so I'm thinking on buying a cheap gyuto to bring with me.

    I want a small and light wa gyuto. Ideally with saya. While not traveling I'll offer this knife for guests, so it might see some abuse. Carbon or stainless, doesn't really matters for me.

    I do want to keep it inexpensive to save money on some better knives

    While there are great Carbonext, Misono stainless and Fujiwara FKM, I couldn't find anything similar with wa handle.
    I'm trying to keep it around 100$ but it seems to be mission impossible :-/

    That's a weird looking knife.

    It does look weird in that pick, a guy at work has one, and it doesn't have the odd tip.

    I think I'd spend a bit more and get a Sakai Yusuke...

    Unfortunately Tanaka or Gesshin Uraku shipped to Russia would cost me almost twice more of what I was thinking to pay.
    But that Sugimoto might be just what I wanted, thanks!

    and this:

    I have both and I can recommend both at this price. I prefer to use the YAMAWAKU, the handel is oval, the other is d-shape. The YAMAWAKU shape is a littel "bigger" and has nicer finish.
