General The Kitchen Knife Recommend Me a Tall Mid-weight (170 to 220g)

I'm looking for something new to try, preferably in the mid-/light-midweight category (170-220g). My only real requirement is that the knife is taller than 50mm. I have not been a fan of shorter ones. The primary feature I am looking for is avoiding wedging in tall, hard produce. I also don't want it TOO thin at the pinch grip, because I dont care for a really thin spine digging into my finger. I've been browsing old posts here, and also inventories of various retailers and found a few things that interest me, but I wanted to hear your feedback on these, or other suggestions I may have missed. Thanks!

It is very difficult to sharpen. I decided not to sharpen it myself. It's a very different knife if it's sharpened by an amateur.

I have a Y. Tanaka, and there are both pros and cons to this knife. I don’t like the finish of it, it feels robust in a hand. It’s also very difficult to sharpen it. I decided not to grind it myself. It is like a different knife if sharpened by an amateur. On the good side, it is lightweight, showing the exact weight on my scale from https://www.vont.com/product/smart-scal... declared by the manufacturer. The performance of Tanaka is unquestionable. It is my favorite knife to use at home.
