My Top 3 240mm Gyuto's........

Wed Aug 01, 2012 11:19 am

In order of preference from left to right....

Custom laser M390 / Custom Konosuke ZDP-189 / Konosuke HD Gyuto/Funayuki.

The M390 is the thinnest of the 3 with a to die for distal taper towards the tip for delicate work - this is my current goto.....

Nice post! I really like the handle on the custom kono. I noticed the HD handle has a smaller girth than the others, is this a problem for you at all or can you even tell a difference when using them?

I use a pinch grip, so it is not really a problem, although the other two handles do feel more comfortable - the M390 handle really blends well into the hand.

Is the custom 390 the one you were working on? If not who produced it?
