I've taken a long journey finding the right knife for me, and geometry and grind were the priority, and the steel not so important. I finally settled on two that are perfect for me: Kintaro and Gengetsu. Been using them for years and have no desire to try something else. I've owned a lot of others prior to that, but some I remember offhand are Shigefusa, Tanaka R2, Ginga, Kochi V2, Ginrei, and Kagekiyo. I do my own sharpening, and I've come to the point where it would be nice if I could find something with performance of the Kintaro and Gengetsu, but that I didn't have to sharpen so often. So I'm wondering if there are any great makers out there using something like S30V or M390. Any advice?
