I agree... when they post up their first question or comment. Saying HI
just to say HI, I'M HERE
seems incredibly narcissistic to me, but as always... from comfortably on my Island. MARK <>
Thank you for your clarifying the obvious.

I feel there is so much more to say about Gokos

Still some things to update on the goko actually.
Beginning to really dread the profile. Gotten into push cutting and chopping versus rocking. The goko doesn't have a very long flat spot, it's a great rocker, but in all honesty in terms of push cutting it feels like the usable board contact is less than 150mm. You have to rock or do some weird hybrid movement to julienne some veg. I really only take this knife out because of the custom handle I put on it. Besides that it stays in the kit.

Yeah you're right. When I chop there's always that little bit connecting the food, what do you call that? Accordion cut? I don't get that with my tojiro dp. The Goko is a great rocker, nice and smooth but for chopping, not so great. But maybe with more practice I might figure the sweet spot.

I've gotten it to work, I just much prefer other styles. I'm not talking kiritsuke profile, but give me a larger sweetspot you know
However this makes it a wonderful first J-knife. Most western users like to rock as the profile dictates so. Truly, truly one of the best beginner knives.
