    Hello think i want a mono steel gyuto prefferably carbon steel like white 2

    Is it just my head that you cant thin a clad knife to that extent of a mono steel?

    And any good 210mm mono steel gyuto suggestions? 200 bucks tops shipped to norway :)

    $200 is going to be a tough one.  Kick it up a notch and you can get a Masamoto KS white #2 from Rakuten Japan for < $300 USD.  They ship here so they might ship to you.

    Gesshin Ginga in white #2, $250. I remember seeing one used in 270mm for $180. Shoulda jumped on it. Love me some white #2. Haven't used the gyuto, but love the Ashi Cleaver (also maker of Ginga) in white steel.
