    that is a clad knife, just like the others, and the cherry handle looks fine to me.

    How does this AEB-L stainless in the Sakai Takayuki compare to white #1?

    Shirogami is a little easier than AEB-L to sharpen, but AEB-L has a bit better edge retention. In a home environment, you're not likely to notice much difference at all.

    Here's a review: http://www.foodieforums.com/vbulleti...light=takayuki

    Will one get slightly sharper than the other? I have a vg10 shun and even after sharpening the difference between it and a carbon steel blade is noticible. Because of this I am hesitant about a non-carbon knife. Also carbon seems very "japanese" to me which is also an appeal.

    When it comes to "sharpness" you are the limiting factor.

    Takefu VG10 low quality? I don't think so. I don't think Shun classics are particularly "soft" either at RC 60.

    Jon,

    Hmm ...

    Sounds as if you are talking your way into a Sakai Yusuke, eh?

    I say to follow your instincts, "gut", whatever you may call it, and get the knife that most appeals to you. You can't go wrong with either one. If you do order a Sakai Yusuke from BlueWayJapan, upgrade the shipping to EMS. It's $7 extra, but you will get the knife in a matter of days instead of weeks, and you will have tracking.

    bull crap. Shuns have issues, but it's not in build quality or materials. they get as sharp and stay as sharp as any other VG10 knife.
