    evergood 210mm going for $42 currently.

    tojiro pro 240mm $80 link

    Can't find much info on either of them on here.

    How does the tojiro pro compared to the dp? Same blade steel combo, different handle? How do yo u like that handle? according to here the blades should be the same.

    Given how cheap the evergood is, I have doubts if they are worth buying, anyone experience?

    Looking for a gift for a lady who's favorite knife right now are kiwi's. they should be light weight with handles comfortable with smaller hands. Edge retention important as they will get sharpened twice a year by me.

    If the knives will only get sharpened twice a year, you might consider steels known for superb edge retention like zdp-189 or a powdered steel like sg-2 or R-2. Harder to sharpen than other steels, but if you have some good stones it should be no problem.

    So I've ordered a nakiri knife like the evergood, but I don't think it is exactly evergood. Will give a review when it arrives.

    I dunno, man. You're not going to find anything that stays very sharp for 6 mo with a fair amount of use in the price range you're looking at. The best solution might be to get two or three knives and tell her to switch them out once they are dull and then sharpen them all whenever you show up... How does she keep her Kiwi's sharp?
