The Tadafusa Tsuchime SLD line is a perfect blade to get a taste of reactive steel without the full maintenance headache, thanks to the stainless cladding that protects most of the surface area from rust, while you can enjoy the long edge life and sharpness of SLD tool steel. (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent th edge portion from rusting, and a benign discolouration/patina will form regardless).
We find this construction to be the best combination of easy maintenance and edge retention that novice Japanese knife user can safeuly venture into.
A chef's knife ('Gyuto' in Japanese) is the most versatile blade that can handle almost anything in the kitchen. Their shape and often generous edge length mean that whether it's cutting small tomatoes or portioning a large roast, you can do it with one blade. Most cooks have multiple chef's knives and it is not hard to justify getting one more when it has so much utility.
