I purchased a few things from you in the past, and I need/want to purchase a couple of things more. Living in the UK I found out that delivery costs plus customs plus VAT make the whole exercise rather more expensive than it should be. I will be in the US in about 3 weeks time for one week, so my question is, will you deliver to a hotel ?
I'm in the market for a long slicer/carving knife/sujihiki (270-300 prefer the longer but not crucial), to be given as a gift, has to be 50/50 bevel.
I was looking at the following
Konosuke HD 300 http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohd30wa.html
Takeda Yanagiba 275 http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tayaasdoed27.html
at $370 (I got a Takeda from you and it's fabulous)
Masakage Koishi http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mako30su.html
at $399, there is also a 270 version. There isn't one single review on any of the Masakage knives, so don't know what people think of it, from the look and description seems similar to Takeda ?
Moritaka Damascus http://www.chefknivestogo.com/moritakyanagi.html
which looks nice and has a nice discount (is this 50/50 ?)
Suisin Inox 270 http://www.chefknivestogo.com/suinhowa27.html
at $445, probably somewhat above my budget
and there are many more , like
Sugimoto http://www.chefknivestogo.com/sugimoto- ... i-270.html
Of those above, the one that 'attracts' me is the Konosuke, but there is much choice, which would you recommend at this price range (or lower ?) ? The intended use is mostly for meat, roasts etc, but probably also for more general cooking.
