Hmmm, I went to find the link for you and it's not there? Maybe I misread the 240mm one, lol. I've been going since 1030pm last night, tired!

Taz - Can you share your thoughts on the Kono blue vs. HD(2) from personal experience? I've been eyeing the blue, and like to OP have been going back and forth between Kono and Takeda.

No. I've only used the Kono in HD a few times so far and I don't have the Fujiyama..yet. I was going to get one as a Birthday Present to myself this year, but got a Blue #2 Kono Honyaki instead :) Aaron Gibson has 2 240mm Blue #2 Fujiyama's I believe and loves them.

TAZ <> No worries. They never made a production Fuji270Funa... only the 240.

For me there's a reason why I own two of the blue konos. They work. The grind, profile and basically every thing. I've used a takeda 215 and it was good but the kono is just a better knife personally speaking. Hope this helps.

Aaron - Thanks for chiming in. How has the reactivity been with the kono blue, both in terms of the food and the knife?
Thanks

Well, I've heard that they range from low to medium. For all of mine I would say at best medium. I had a kochi that was a bear and was reactive as all hell. Kono's are personally speaking on the lower side.

Probably a little under--235mm, or maybe a couple less.
