    If you had $500 for a Gyuto what would you get?

    If I remember correctly someone might have posted something like this a while back, but can't remember. So here it is. If you have $500.00 to spend on any gyuto what would it be? There is a slight method to my madness in asking for future reference. Would you go with a Shig? Watanabe? Miz? Or something else?

    Are we assuming we have no other gyutos?

    Easy. If you can wait, one of Pierre's thin Gyutos (210-240mm), if not, one of the 7.6sun Carter funayukis he has up on his site right now...
    Or this.

    Haha. Have you gotten your hands on a prototype or is that based on what you've seen so far and Marko's work ethic/nature?

    Shige is to reactive. And since marko is a coming star you even got a says and a nice handle too

    Well as you know I am a fan of high end knives and for 500 marko is the best deal atm

    No
    But I have seen his handles and his says. I know he is a perfectionist and strives to become better than most I also know he works with the best makers out there and have studied kitchen knives for a long time, and seen most of high end knives there is to see. What impresses me the most is that he has been doing knives for a long time no, he studies and learns, but he has not yet started to sell knives. He won't sell any seconds and that tells me that he puts a lot of energy in making the best there is. He don't rush to sell knives.

    I have orders in at most high end makers, but the one that I ordered most from is Marko. (It think I ordered 8 knives to be delivers over the next couple of years)
