    Carbonext should be better. Why is it cheaper than the Kagayaki VG10? I don't know, probably because they don't look as flash, but the Carbonext should be better

    I have the 240mm gyuto and agree with this. A 210mm Suisin Western gyuto is currently on its way from Jon.

    what do you have against the DP?

    I think it's not a good one for people who aren't so confident with their sharpening because the cladding is very very soft, I think you could almost scratch it with your nail. If your angle wobbles at all the grit from the stone sticks to the sides like glue

    the cladding is pretty high up on every DP i've used or seen, and that's a purely cosmetic issue. people who aren't confident with their sharpening are going to scratch up whatever knives they use, until they get good at it, and every knife is going to get scratched up once it requires thinning, which all knives eventually will. at least the soft cladding on the DP is easy to polish out, if one is so inclined.
