    I prefer either a western handle or a D handle. I live in a very humid area so i want to shy away from pure carbon knives. Budget is $300. Right now i'm looking at maybe a Misono UX10, Togiharu Pro. But really open to other options. But really open to other suggestions. Also really hard to find out the qualities of these different knives.

    How about this full stainless G3 steel tanaka? As I understand the ginsanko version is thinner than the blue 2 versions.

    The 'lite' version doesn't have the spine rounded but you can do that yourself in 3 minutes and save $40

    Also I liked all the togiharu from korin that I've seen. Good thin grind for a factory knife. The hardest steel from that house brand is still affordable.

    idk, not a fan of hex handles really. Have you had much experience with masamoto knives? I think i remember reading about some problem with the grind a couple years ago.
