It's typically longer than what I want, but these are just too good. All those linked have D2 steel blades; previous samples have been tested and came in at 62rh - which is incredible. A wharncliffe, a drop point that's almost a spear point, and for want of a proper description, a straight back, which is advertised as a drop point, but clearly isn't. All prices are in US, but should be close to the au$39.00 posted for the first knife. I'm no expert, but if you're a beginner any of these are very easy recommendations. D2 steel is pretty good, and ganzo knives have a good reputation. I have one of their knives in 440c - it's the knife I have used the most. Also the blade on that thing is tough even though the steel is on the lower end of the scale. I assumed it was due to their heat treat. That knife, like many, came with an uneven bevel; it took me ages to fix it with a stone. That was over a year ago. I've only had to strop it since. I consider it one of my beater knives for home - it just gets used.
