    Fujiwara FKM is also good, it's what I have and a bit tougher steel than the DP.

    I think I paid around $45 for mine, way back when. It's one of the toughest knives I can name, and a chicken breaking machine.
    I really am related to Tony Clifton.

    Since I have nearly the same question I though it does not mask sense to start a new thread. I am planning on a honesuki - either a asymmetric and (semi)stainless with western handle for up to $200.

    Question I have is - should I just get the Tojiro DP or Fujiwara FKM, or would it be worth it to go with something like:
    - MAC bon-60
    - JCK Kagayaki Basic
    - JCK Kagayaki CarboNext
    - Misono Molybdenum
    - Masamoto AT
    - Yoshihiro INOX
    - Sugimoto CM or HM

    or even:
    - Masamoto VG
    - Misono 440
    - Misono UX10
    - Konosuke HD or HH
    - Al Mar 5"

    In general I would prefer slightly shorter blade (135-140) - but there are nearly none of these out there.

    thank you

    Second the Fujiwara FKM, it's rock solid and nice F&F. Have ran through stacks and stacks of birds and etc... with mine over the years.

    Tojiro. Pure performance at a modest price. Nothing I've seen has convinced me that any of the significantly higher priced options do the job any better. FKM is another fine option.
