Morning all, Its that wonderful time again where I can justify dropping some coin on a new knife, and to mix it up I've been seriously thinking about a traditional handmade Japanese chef knife. My reasons for leaning towards this is twofold, firstly I have been reading some really good reviews over the last year, and secondly is more of an aesthetic appeal thing, and a desire to just go with something that I haven't gone with before. Just looking for personal experiences and solid suggestions / advise in regards to their own specific choices from those 'in the know' when it comes to handmade Japanese knives. What's great, what should I be seriously looking at and who sells them. Looking to spend up to $350 and any serious advise is much appreciated.
