Thread: Choosing new 210/240 Gyuto?

    Thinking of the FKM or CarboNext now. I think I can get a ~1k/4k whetstone pair for £30. Can you go wrong with a cheap ceramic rod? Or I'll just find a smooth one and know it's correct.

    The Carbonext seems like a lot of knife for the money and it has a "beefy" handle.

    Also, are they really that much more stainless than the mystery "semi"-stainless used in the Carbonext?

    Yes, they are, but that was not the reason it was not included in my list. The CarboNext has a track record of having a very poor OOTB edge. That doesn't mean mush to those of us who sharpen, but it could be daunting and frustrating for a newcomer. The knives I listed come with an acceptable OOTB edge.

    Ahh very good point about the OOTB edge.

    JCK is now offering a "premium" sharpening job for the Carbonext knives.

    That's true but the way I see it is generally, new people wreck edges pretty quickly, anyway.

    I think I'm going to get a CarboNext then and I'll happily put the care into sharpening it. A knife with a lot of potential is exactly the kind of thing I'd like. Truly invaluable information here
