Hi Y'all, it's Aaron, who wrote this original post. Thanks for the awesome replies. and Mark, thanks for taking this to the masses!
I'm the type of guy who will more than likely buy both... just looking for more 'hand made' vibe.
does the Kanehiro come with a darker Wa handle? I'm an inch away from buying the 210...
As an aside, my wife is Japanese - last month we were in Odawara and yokohama and couldn't find "authentica" anywhere. It was all Henkels and Wustorf over there. I picked up some obscure santoku and a nameless petty knife.. so are the Japanese just lost on their awesome knives and all the good stuff going export, or was I shopping in the wrong hood?
