Loving my Konosuke 210 wa gyuto. You guys rock

Wed Apr 17, 2013 4:16 pm

Thanks for all the help guys. After months of research, I pushed the button. I called just to ask a few questions and Mark was great. Ordered on Friday, came in on Monday (that was free shipping too). I didn't know that I was ordering a 210mm razor blade. There is no need to further describe how sharp this knife is and how well it cuts. If you have one, you know. If you don't..., push the button. For anyone trying with this in your choice list, buy it. I dropped a tomato on it from about a foot up...warm butter. I am push cutting without even thinking about it, never would have even tried that before. I felt so bad about it's blade hitting my regular wooden cutting board, I ordered a 20x15x3.5 inch end grain board. A beautiful knife like this should never touch anything else.

Now.... wa petty anyone? :D

:) just got one last week. It was on my list, had to see for myself what all the fuss was about. Why this knife has three times the reviews as others. Let's just say all you've heard about them... It's true. Everyone needs to have one of these.

HD has turned into my new favorite steel... It is just awesome... Does get very minor chips when chopping so watch out for it... but they come out in seconds on a good stone..
