    Collector's Gyuto: 240 vs 270 & Stainless vs Carbon?

    Hunting for my first gyuto that will be a for display art.

    Had some questions:

    1. 240 vs 270 mm?

    2. Stainless vs Carbon?

    3. Wood handle vs Bone handle?

    Thanks for your opinions!

    Display art? Than stainless, 270 and bone. Prefereably ss damascus from Del, Randy, Devin, Bill B or Will C, or maybe Lische (sp?)

    My gut says get something from WillC my head says something from Devin

    1 depends what you can afford, I would go 270
    2 depends if you want to oil it, stainless restricts the makers
    3 I like wood, what do you like?

    Then use a pretty $2k gyuto to make dinner.

    OP, is this knife solely for display? Or are you going to use it as well?

    Budget?

    And if it's for display art, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What do you like?
