A colleague of mine wants to find a gyuto in a blue steel with a western handle. He likes the Masamoto HC gyuto but not the edge retention, hence the blue steel. Recommendations?

budget is $300. Something in between a laser and workhorse. Cladding doesn't matter.

Suien VC is a beast. More a workhorse than a lightweight. Very well made, excellent F&F. Needs a good sharpening with some thinning OOTB. Strongly right biased, good food release. Neutral balance. Excellent edge retention.
