Default Kitchen knife

I'm thinking of a good Japanese, layered steel kitchen knife---say seven inches long---super sharp---available in the L.A. area---maybe $200 +/- or so---any ideas?

That is an amazing value at $30, I love Spyderco knives.

OP: you should also consider Morakniv. Made in Sweden, 14C28N Sandvik steel

The knife that gets used most in my house is a Chef's Knife I made years ago from a blank, but the blank seems to be off the market now

The blade is 1095 HCS and I think it was made by Russell Green River Works.
I can find other styles on Track of the Wolf, and other sites, but not the Chef's Knife style/type.

I looks like RGRW's 6" Cartouche Blade, but in a full sized 8-10" Chef's Knife profile
https://www.trackofthewolf.com/List/Item.aspx/453/1

I wish I could find more.

Did someone miss out on the 90's "Ginsu" knife?
That said, what is wrong with Cutco?
More than a decade ago I had a few(you don't NEED all of them), I never actually needed to sharpen them, my ex ended up with them.
I have a few currently and the best I have owned.
They will sharpen them for free, IIRC, lifetime warranty, and made in USA.

Made in Japan, Designed by Mac Knife in Sacramento. Sorry, not LA, but outstanding kitchen knives nonetheless.

I just bought my wife a set of Kramer By Zwilling Eurolines.

They fit the hand like no kitchen knife I have ever seen, they use steel that really works well at retaining an edge and at corrosion resistance, and they are beautiful. Thin blades, tapered tangs, and the balance is perfect. The knifes handle like an extension of your finger. The five piece set with a walnut block and steel costs $850. Don't get the Eurolines mixed up with the carbon series (I'm not sold on carbon steel in the kitchen) or the stainless Damascus series (twice the price of the Eurolines for what?)

They have a 6" ($170) and an 8" chef's knife ($200), and a 7" Santoku ($200). They are wide blades, and they will not fit in most knife blocks.

Bought a MAC MTH-80 after reading the reviews on it. Love the knife and it will cut through anything with ease.

Amazing knives. I use the MTH-80 and the MBK-85 daily.

I've tried a number of other high dollar/high praise brands, but the blades and the balance of the MAC Knives are perfect for me.

I like Morakniv's outdoor products. Does anyone have first hand experience with their kitchen knives?
