Kono 210mm petty questions

Fri Jun 07, 2013 4:43 pm

Hi Mark,
I'm looking into 210mm petty knives for line work. Just a couple questions about konosuke.

The Konosuke Fujiyama White #2 210mm Petty - is it single or double bevel?

The Konosuke HD2 210mm Wa-Petty, and the Ebony handle version, the $70 difference is just in the handle? And does the HD2 steel react like a carbon blade, or more like a stainless?


At the end of the day, which of the above would you recommend for professional (but cared for) use?
Thanks for your time.

Corey

Hi Corey,

The Fujiyama is double bevel.

The HD is the same knife with a different handle for the ebony version. It's is more like a stainless knife than a carbon knife. There is a little over 5% chromium in it which helps reduce the re-activity quite a bit.

For most I would recommend the HD just because it's less reactive but both are sweet knives.

Fujiyama is a hard to beat knife line. But, it's carbon and requires a little extra thought/care.

The HD2 steel is a great steel and that knife should be ever so slightly thinner overall than the Fujiyama which is clad.

I'm considering one of these myself. What is the height of the blade at the heel?
