I will be using a pinch grip. Will that work with the yuki? And what stones would I need for it?

I´d been wanting to order the Yuki bunka. i imagine it scalpel sharp. white 2 is great steel.

Hiroshi Kato, does also Kanehiro. they have some amazing AS nashiji finish.

"Too light" is a person preference thing... It would be hard to say whether you will think it's too light.

The Yuki is a much better knife than the Goko.

The goko is pretty light. I'd say it's a really nice budget knife. I bought it because it was a good deal, and I have enjoyed it. It's probably my nicest knife so far. That being said, I look at the masakages the most and would love to have one some day. They are probably some of the top knives on the site. It's all a learning experience and I try not to get in over my head too quick. I already feel like I'm behind on the sharpening, which I just got into, and I've only had nice knives for a year or so.

As far as stones, it depends on budget. There are a few combo stones, like the imanashi. A good start would be a 1k stone. Lots of good recommendations in the sharpening sub forum.

A pinch grip will treat you just fine, but when I started to use wa handled Japanese knives I found my fingers creeping slightly down toward the handle. It's been a very relaxed and safe grip for me.

The Yuki, Mizu, Koishi, and Shimo series from Masakage have some of the most comfortable neck/choil design & spacing that I have used. They are designed to best accommodate a pinch grip.

That Goko is a nice knife, but the Yuki is just in another category, in many different ways. The Yuki (or Mizu) will sharpen easily on almost any stone.
