Konosuke HD 240mm Wa-Gyuto Reviewhttp://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohdwa24.html

Review:The Koon HD 240mm is a fantastic knife! I have been using it solely for over a month and so far its performance has been outstanding. It is very thin (although I was expecting thinner for some reason), very light, and nimble. Its edge retention is great and it is very easy to sharpen. It also feels really nice on the waterstones. The reason I am giving it a 4 star is because I think this knife is slightly on the light side for my style of cutting but that is rather very subjective. The handle feels great – I feel that it has more grip when wet compared to the treated ones. It is rather light for my liking. The knife is also blade heavy so maybe opting out for aftermarket handle could balance the knife perfectly and add some needed weight. For the ones that wonder the knife does come little on the short side ~ 235mm. I have been using 240s and the difference in length is not noticable. Bottom line is that this knife is an outstanding performer and great value for the money. Mark, as usual, is top notch.
