Hello, I'm brand new to this board, although I've been stalking your opinions about faux Damascus knives for about a month. I know they're not well thought of, I know you're paying for pretty. I'd still like one. I'm trying to purchase a decent kitchen knife to add to my collection (of 2, a zwilling 8" chef's knife and a tojiro 8" chef's knife) and really like the Japanese Damascus style. I have it narrowed down to a Yaxell Gou 6.5" Santoku, a Mcusta Zanmai Damascus flame 7", or a Kikuichi Warikomi Damascus utility 6.5". I like shorter blades for prep work. Does anyone have experience with/an opinion of any of these? I'm sorry to ask such a dumb question... I'm very new to this, and appreciate your patience. I'd like something to grow and learn with, but also something high quality that will last for many years.
