http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com/itinomonn/ pending restocks, though there is this http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/s...-W2-and-Itinomonn-StainLess-Kasumi-both-210mm for now.

Though I don't know if you're going to get hit by customs with these options.

Takamura R2 (PM steel, not carbon) 210mm if you can find an option that gets the pricing where you need

Kai, the Ikazuchi is a laser - type knife. Nice performance at its price point, looks pretty cool when the core steel patinas against the more polished stainless cladding. It is light.

Was trying to root out exactly what you were looking for with a 'rather light knife', if that was in comparison to your Yuki.

If you've been to Knifewear, Haruyuki PM with the rosewood handles could also be good candidates for light but not laser. Just a bit above your listed price range, but you could get a feel for it regardless.

Itinomonn and Wakui should be top contenders for that light-middleweight range of great cutters that is between something like a laser and your Yuki

I'd suggest contacting any of the non-Canadian vendors to get a feel for what to expect on shipping costs and import/customs fees.

FWIW the 240mm Itinomonn StainLess (semi-stainless core) gyuto restocked today. It's out of your initially stated budget esp. considering the prospect of customs charges. The V2 Itinomonn are cheaper but are still out of stock.

The Konosuke lasers (were you referring to these or the Fujiyama wide beveled lines?) don't strike me as particularly similar to Takedas which tend to run quite tall (blade height)

There's also an ebay store selling the CCK for <$75 USD incl. shipping.
