I wanted to try some of the Stainless blades,my first in over 25 yrs. was the Togiharu INOX ultra thin profile fr. Korin.It is a good blade,I paid 115.00 little over a yr. ago they have gone up in price since.The thin profiled edge makes it easy to sharpen.
I also bought the Fujiwara FKM both of these blades are better than the Forschners I used in the past.I would recomm. either one of these gyuto,slight edge to the Togiharu INOX.
I'm not going to buy any more stainless(famous last words)I know alot of persons like the Carbonext,talked to Jon about the gesshin Uraku,sounds like a solid workhorse blade.The Hiromoto #3 I liked & good price Mikemac's review makes me feel I can recomm. all these blades to students even tho I have never used them.
