Hello! Im going to buy some japense knives and in need of some help.I read up on the subject and the market, but not sure which one(s) to get. I kinda set my mind to the kai shun knives, but ive read that they are not the best. I dont either like how commercial and normal they are in kitchens. I have some requirments for the knives i need. Firstly it has to be damskus pattern(folded), it just looks so bad it also has to be pure japanese, no western mix or anything, and it has to have a classic japenese plain wood grip. Are there any other models that would be better? Price wise shun knives are good, but if i get something better i dont mind paying more. Also does anyone know which stones are the best for this knife? im going to buy alot stone/hones for my straightrazor, and wondering if i could combine them, for instance would naninwa be good? Thanks for help!
