Hello, I have been lurking on this forum for a while and reading a lot of the knife reviews trying to figure out the best knife to buy for myself. I did a couple of searches and I did not find any information on this forum about this knife. Based on what I have read here, the Hiromoto knives are very good quality and Mr. Nagao is retired so his stock is limited.

Have any of you used the Hiromoto VG-10 Gyuto in the past? What are your thoughts on it? Do you suggest something different that you think might be better for this price range?

My first choice was the Konosuke HD2 Gyuto Ho 240mm but as some of you might already know, these aren't in stock and won't be for a while. I want to buy a knife as a gift to myself (either a 240mm or a 270mm) and I don't want to say that money is no object but my budget would be around $200 - $500. I would like to purchase the knife this week as I will be traveling and would like to take it with me.

Also, when I asked Mark from CNTG about the Konosuke HD2 he suggested that this knife might be a good alternative Kurosaki R2 http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kurosaki240.html

Thank you for any help or suggestions.

Thank you so much for all of the good input. Based on all of your suggestions, last night I pulled the trigger on the Hiromoto Aus-10 270mm. I'm still interested on getting another knife besides this one. I'll probably wait for the Konosuke HD2 Gyuto to be back in stock. I might also consider purchasing this one once it's back in stock Kurosaki R2 Western Gyuto http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kurosakir21.html
