Which cheap entry level 240mm Gyuto?

jazzanova | Aug 21, 2013 11:55 AM

I am a beginner home cook, just ordered a nice end-grain 16x20 cherry board from BoardSmith and need some knives to complement it. :)
I like the wa-gyoto, not sure about the bolster. Oh, and I have small hands.
Every forum I have read seems to recommend these particular gyuto knives. I am still a bit confused, so I would like to put the + & - of each into this thread.
Which one would you pick and why?
