I am in the market for a new gyuto style knife that is both functional and can be used as a statement (has a nice pattern/design, in this case the damascus and hammering). I have found many good ones, but these two have really stood out for me:
Gonbei Hammered Damascus and Sakai Takayuki Gyuto. I dont really care about the handle (I dont mind if I get wa or yo). Any opinions on these two knives? Are these good choices or should I be choosing something different (in the $150-$225ish pricepoint - willing to go a little higher for something amazing.
Any help is appreciated :)
