I was looking at the $119 cutting board for bread you posted in your other thread.I ordered a Takamura petty from MTC kitchen and their processing time is now 2-3 weeks due to COVID! WTH!
I hate the Mazaki handle from CNC but I think that’s my best bet right now. I really like this togashi too

Why don't you just buy a $15 plastic or bamboo board—then take the $100 you saved and add it to your gyuto budget? The difference between a $300 and $400 knife can be significant. Or the saved money used on a Mac Superior Bread Knife and big bag of King Arthur Flour.
Spend your money where it matters.
BTW, what do you hate about the CKC Maz handle? I like magnolia, more than ebony and some of the other hardwoods.
