Still have not settled on a new small gyuto.
Ive looked at several and actually did purchase the Tojiro 180mm, loved the profile and shape the handle quality was awful. The issue is that i have the Konosuke HD 270 yo handle and that thing is beautiful, everything about it is great. I have to live upto that standard, if they made a 180mm i wold be sorted but they dont
What i need is the 180mm version of that knife, steel can change but it needs to be 50-50 bevel, thin, yo handled and finished very well in all areas. Budget is reasonably good at upto $200 + shipping etc so i think its realistic to get what i want its just that i cant find it.
Any suggestions ?
The previous ones i was thinking about are going to fall down on the fit & finish, the best option i can find is the Tadnatsuna in INOX or white. If i went that way which would be better ?
