    Hi everyone,

    I'm Riccardo, and i'm from Italy, so my english is not so good. 

    I'm looking for a true hand-forged Japanese knives, in particular a high quality gyuto of 210mm-240mm, made of carbon steel. I can spend maximum 200 dollars.

    Well, I found theese knives:

    -Hiromoto AS  http://japanesechefsknife.com/TenmiJyurakuSeries.html#AogamiSuper

    -Masamoto HC  http://japanesechefsknife.com/HCSeries.html#HCSeries

    -Misono Sweden steel  http://japanesechefsknife.com/SwedenSteelSeries.html#SwedenSteel

    -Takamura R2(don't know if it's a carbon steel)  http://www.finejapanesekitchenknives.com/takamura.php

    1)Do you know if anyone of theese is a truly hand-forged knifes?

    2)Is one of theese better than the others?

    3)Could you recommend me other knives of the same category?

    Thanks !!
