Konosuke Ginsan........

Sun Dec 23, 2012 2:59 pm

Just wanted to report that I received an early christmas present last night from my family........the 240 mm Ginsan!

I spoke to Mark and read some of his thoughts on the knife, the best being "like a BMW, its the best waste of money you'll ever spend....." or words to that effect. It is an awesome blade. I'm still a neophyte, but own a few good knives and this thing is pretty dang special. Handle is very comfortable, I guess you'd call it a hybrid. Very sharp out of the box. I'm looking forward to using it and learning more!

Thanks, Mark for all the help.......and I'm sorry there aren't anymore left for you!

Don't worry I have more on order.:) The blacksmith that did your knife is one of the best in Japan currently making kitchen knives in my opinion. Have fun with that knife. Merry Christmas!

I am also considering getting a Ginsan.

Any more comments about this knife say compared to the HD?

I don't have any experience with the HD. Looking at pictures, the HD maybe a little bit of a taller blade, but Mark can verify or discount that.

I made a potato dish last night to go along with the traditional beef roast for Christmas and it required a ton of 1/8 slices of potatoes......it was fun to do with the Ginsan.
