Rick is right. The edge is where the rubber meets the road. The spine has 0 impact on cutting performance. The Kato knives we sell are some of the sharpest, best performing knives we have on the site and they're pretty thick at the spine.

If they're thick right behind the edge that makes a big difference in how a knife cuts through food. That's why we thin our knives. Not too many people try and thin their spines.

yes ive used thick knives before. I really don't geometry has anything to do with the way a yam behaves when cut in 1/4" thick slices. You stretch it far enough its going to break at the bottom without being cut cleanly through. At least the last 5 cases have been that way maybe they were just bad yams

Anyway, sorry to hijack the thread but we have a new Forum Special. Moritaka was one of the first small blacksmith shops I signed when I decided about 5 years ago that I wanted to go in a different direction with our site (along with Takeda). Here, I'm offering the 250mm Gyuto at a big discount that will never be repeated. I hope you guys enjoy this knife and I would LOVE to hear some feedback. I'll be going to dinner with the Moritaka family when we meet in Tokyo on my second night in Japan later this month. I'll show them your comments.

So, without further ado, here is the new deal. I'll run this for a week or until we run out of them, whichever comes first. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fomosp.html

I didn't mean to give the impression that this knife isn't a good knife either, having not used one personally. But having used knives for 8-12 hrs a day for the last several years I do know how *I* need things, and certain things that won't work for me.


Greatly appreciate everything you do, Mark

No problem. If one knife fit every need and desire we would have a really boring website with 1 item. :)
