Thread: White steel gyutos or petty that don't break the bank?

  1. #1

    White steel gyutos or petty that don't break the bank?

    Any suggestions of rustic white steel knives that aren't too expensive. I don't care for fancy handles. I'll polish the blades to my liking. I've been using a Masakage white #2 and have been impressed how the edge cuts with just a little paper stropping. That's obviously not a cheap knife but is there a maker of white steel knives in the lower price bracket?

    I'm not interested in Tojiro or Yamashin. Those two are the only ones I've been able to find so far.

    Carter small Kurouchi Funayuki with standard handle; sub-par F/F but one of the best white steel I've tried.

    All those are blue#1 steel - not that I would consider that a disadvantage

    Sorry, had a momentary lapse there.

    That is assuming you can actually find a Carter at that price in stock. I think those tend to disappear real quick.
