    Hi all,

    A few months ago, a did a fair bit of research into purchasing a wa-gyuto. I ended up deciding on the Gesshin Uraku 240mm. However, the knife seems to be chronically out of stock at JKI. So, I'm looking to put a similar knife down on my Christmas list. What do you guys think would be a good alternative?

    Thanks!

    Take a look at the Gonbei hammered 240 from JKI.
