    I'd write him and tell him you aren't pleased. Last time someone did, well, we all remember the awesome outcome.

    To bring this thread back on topic......

    Hiromoto G3 180m gyuto might fit what you are asking for, at a reasonable sum.

    I don't have a G3 myself, I would like to though. People who own them seems to like them, can't recall ever reading any negative press.

    Carter seems to have come back into "vogue" as of late.

    My carter SGFZ 5.0 sun blue lasts for weeks in a pro kitchen without sharpening... it's super sharp at first then it kinda stays at 80% for a looong long time, which is still very sharp... I had a DT ITK, and still have a Hiromoto AS, Takeda... and I kinda don't use them anymore because of the carter... just my 0.02... and I just bought a 6.2 HG carter.... can't wait!!!

    I use to think it was a hype, but not anymore... the carbon edge is not reactive at all after it takes on a patina, which is kind of a big deal for me... and I don't need to baby it...
