    For home use I think, its perfectly fine to use stones cheaper singlebevels, just concentrate on technique. a lot of people working in Sushi restaurants use some crappy knives but they get by at acceptable levels

    @Poutine_boy: Where do you find sashimi-grade fish here? I'm not sure where Miyamoto gets theirs, possibly United?

    I use a cheap Kanehisa for cutting sashimi, skinning, etc. I love it. I would choose it over any gyuto I own.

    As a beginner, get an inexpensive yanagiba. Sharpening a single bevel knife is very different than a double bevel; if you mess it up, it's not going to be as costly of a mistake.

    I second that comment about the lacquered handle. I would try and get a plain handle instead; because you're cutting a lot of fish, your handle will get wet and that lacquer will come off eventually.

    yanagi handle should not really be getting wet at all. My deba also pretty much doesn't get very wet either, but I never filleted under running water as I've seen in a lot of videos.
