I don't think you can go wrong with anything from but JKI, but I would call Jon (the owner) and let him guide you. Jon will not sell you anymore knife than you need, and will know more about the pros/cons of each than anyone. Very easy person to talk to.

I'm just not sold on carbon over SS. It changes so much from maker to grind to heat treatment... I am really lost and can wait for Jon to clarifybthe difference between the different blades. I am really thrilled about all this!
skype works well FYI... i hope to be caught up on e-mails very soon
Pm me when you are through your e-mails and We can maybe fix a skype appointment call?
Thanks so much.
After some questions and arrangements, decided to pull the trigger on a 240 Gesshin Uraku in Stainless Steel! Thanks for all of your input, just waiting for Jon's crazy schedule to calm down a little
I am REALLY thrilled. Getting a King's 1000/6000 whetstone to learn the basics too! Will practice on my and family's Faberware blocks! haha
Go J-Knives! tHANKS KKF!
