Hello -

I'm interested in the Konsouke HD 210 Gyuto with Corian handle on your site - couple of questions. 1) saya availability? 2) it looks like the specs say the Corian increases the weight by 2 ounces - how does this affect the feel of the knife compared to the Wa-gyuto standard style (is all the weight in the ferrule)? Any comments? I expect this knife to become a home kitchen workhorse.

Thanks,

Bill

PS still loving the Moritaka Kiritsuke 240mm - great blade.

Hi Bill,

Yes the 210mm Gyuto saya will fit this knife. You can find it here:

They're great knives but you're right the corian scales are heavier than normal wood scales. My own experience is you get used to what you use all the time.

My general comment is this is one of the best western handled knives we sell on the site. Great steel, great handle that is super durable and won't shrink. Sharpens well and holds an edge well.

Glad you like that Moritaka. They're one of my favorite makers on the site. PS speaking of sayas my woodworker just made some sayas to fit the Moritaka.

These will fit the Moritaka and the Tojiro ITK Kiritsuke Gyuto.

Yeah, the additional weight is in the western handle versus the wa handle. The tang on a wa handle is a lot less metal, the ferrule isn't there on a wa, and the corian is heavier than even stabilized wood.

All of that probably adds the entirety of the extra weight.
