    I've got the 210 Sugimoto. Thin, good grind, excellent cutter, nice profile. Very cheap but perfectly functional handle. Fine grained stainless takes a nice edge. 80:20 asymmetric bevels ootb.

    What's the purpose of asymmetrical grinds?
    Will it change the way I have to sharpen it?

    Not on your list, but I really like my Sakai yusuke wa gyuto. I have a few tojiros and am happy with them. Senkou is the series above DP and liked the fit and finish I have on one of those as well.

    The 270 is longer than I want.
    I think 210 or 240 is as long as I'd be willing to go.
    Just email Koki. He will let you know if he has more on the way. There's also the Yoshihiro that Jon has in stock.

    I'd rock tanaka out of those choices. The blue damascus steel is sweet. Fit and finish will be lacking a little, but hey, its a work knife...
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Not about the metal, its not blue like I have. Looking at the metal differences I don't think it will turn blue either. Haven't heard about Ginsanko yet.

    I'd also consider Inazuma but there are a bunch of nice choices. Carbon is easier to sharpen but all of the stainless that's been listed here gonna be way easier to sharpen than mainstream kitchen knives. I'd probably stay away from VG10 but even that's not terrible.
