    I have done the same thing. I wanted to figure out what I like, so Ive tried W1, AS, AEB-L, O1, VG-10, and 52100. Some I liked more than others, but one thing I have noticed is that you cant really go with steel if the heat treatment hasnt been done correctly. Who cares if you have a AEB-L or a 52100 if it hasnt been done right. Thats what keeps me away from a lot of the new makers out there. I dont feel like spending a premium as they figure their craft out.

    Back to the topic...

    At the end of the day, I think I would only keep my Takeda. It was my first and has sentimental value but that might change when/if I get a custom.

    Watanabe 240 gyuto with mario handle and a recent DT ITK 240.. Have used a fowler 270 suji with custom handle lately and its very nice, comment worthy, not sure about a keeper tho. Love the looks and profile, but geometry didn't work for me.

    I am no pro but having tried some nice knives, my never sells are:

    Harner and hhh gyuto, Harner nakiri, catcheside petty, Davis suji and, while not a knife, Rodrique straightrazor.

    That is of course unless I see something I really want
