    The Kanetsugu Pro M is a nice blade. Even the 240 is thin & light. I would imagine the 210 even more so. I think they still come with a wooden saya another plus. They have a good grind on them & are pretty easy to sharpen. The steel is on par with the Fujiwara. For a western handle it is comfortable.

    I have a friend that bought the 240mm & uses it at Hoku's kitchen over a year now. It does not get much press here as it is an inexpensive blade, a lot of bang for the buck. For inexpensive stainless the Carbonext also sharpens well. For a 210 I would go a little over your 100.00 to get a lot better knife.

    Have you had a chance to take a look at JKI new western handle stainless gesshin line? Got to check them out in person a little while back, they are well made knives with high quality standards and fit your description of "simple, decent, stainless western knives" within your price point.

    Good luck in your search!
