Ok, I think I am finally ready for something a little better.
I have a Fujiwara 240 FKH, Konosuke 270 HD Suji, and Shun Elite 8" that I have been working with and sharpening for awhile and have started thinking about a new 240 Gyuto to add to the lineup.
The Gyuto seems to be the one I reach for the most, but the Suji is a very close second. I don't really like rocking when I cut but have not really had a problem walking the Fujiwara on the board. 240 seems like the right size for everyday tasks on my boards. I have been enjoying Wa handles lately but decent western handles are ok in my books as well.
So who has any advice? I've worked with Blue #1 and really like it. I'm thinking of another carbon knife as so far I have enjoyed it more than SS, although AEB-L might be nice to try.
Budget is anywhere between 180 and 350.
