I am steadily moving away from an old (matched, sorry!) set of Henkels and toward select Western-style japanese knives. I currently have an Mcusta nikiri, a Shiki gyoto and a short Shun chef (which I detest, for some reason). I want to get a santuko next. No, i don't watch Rachel Ray; I just like the design of the tip, especially for all the onion work I do. I know how to sharpen, and all of my blades (except that miserable Shun) can fall straight through a sheet of paper without being drawn, so edge sharpness (or the ability to achieve and hold it) is important. I was looking at the Glestain, but another thread on this site discounted it as overpriced for what ti is. I don't want to pay too much for bling (I did on the Shiki), but aesthetics matter. I hold the knife properly with two fingers on the blade, so some of the knives that pretend to be shaped to your hand move your hand too far back. All that, and, oh... would like to stay under $200. Ideas?
