First of all I must say I am quite very impressed with your website/store. Unbelievable selection and pricing!
SO my mother announced to me she would be buying me a knife of my choosing for my bday and christmas combined.
I have been lurking the web researching and eliminating and have come to a conclusion. (somewhat...)
I am eyeing:
1. Konosuke HD(2? what is the 2) 240mm Gyuto
2. Miyabi 7000mc 240mm (wa) Gyuto
3. Tanaka Damascus 240mm Gyuto
4. One of your m390 offerings in a 240mm Gyuto format
As you can see I am decided on 24cm Gyuto, as it is all I have used for nearly 5 years now as a line cook and could not be happier with versatility and functionality of this size.
Here is some relevant info on me:
1. I love high carbon and take amazing care of my knives (many are high carbon). They are my babies and stainless is not necessary in the slightest.
2. I like a tall knife
3. I am 6'3" tall (big hands)
4. I use waterstones
So which would you recommend based on this? (budget aside)
If you do not have enough data/info on my application I would love to provide you with more.
Much peace and love,

I'll bet you if you tried the Kono you would change your mind.

I've been eyeing the Fujiyama's and the HD's, I don't mind a slightly thicker blade as long as there is some good convexing done to it! Too many knives, not enough knife blocks right now

Ohh, Kono tall, sounds like a winner!

Probably going to go to with the konosuke 240mm tall. Thanks for the responses guys.
What is the difference between hd and hd2?
Fri Nov 02, 2012 6:51 am
HD2 has slightly longer flattish blade - less belly.
