    Considering one of the following:

    Hattori HD-10

    Tenmi Jyuraku Damascus Series TD-4

    Glestain Professional 730-TK

    Does anyone have any recommendations of one over the other? Personal experience with any of them?

    Thanks for any input.

    If only those option I'd pick hattori.

    I have not used those brands but hear hattori is decent.

    Could you spend more? Pay a little more and you have much more options.

    Unless you just have to use 300mm blades, I think you'll find them Too big for every day use. I have 270 & 240 Gyuto's and the 240's see more board time by a wide margin.
    I have this one's big brother {270mm } , same steel & profile .

    Either one of these, would be great everyday workhorses at a decent price.

    I have the 240 Zakuri in Blue #1, it's very easy to sharpen. Good balance = very nimble

    OK, let me ask this...

    What is wrong with the three brands I listed?

    If you want them, go for it.
    I was just offering options of makers that I have at home & like. And that would run 40 or 50 bucks cheaper

    Please don't take it the wrong way. I thought that those were good makers. As mentioned, I have a Masahiro that I LOVE. But would like something a bit more unique.

    Misono (which I use daily at work) is a great brand. I use Swedish steel, which stains easily, but is a joy to use.
    Masamoto is a very good brand, pricey but well worth it. Near perfect geometry (not just words, use one for 8 hours a day and you'll understand).
    Hattori I've only heard about, little complaints.

    I personally use Konosuke (another competent brand) and misono.
