Mark,

Looking for a workhorse (root vegetables, squash and the like) for a professional kitchen. I'm intrigued by the Artifex with the AEB-L but also want to try a carbon blade.

Thanks
J

I'm of the belief that if you havea scratch...itch it. :)

If you want a carbon blade, get one. The Fujiwara is a great entry level carbon knife.

That said, the Artifex is really nice too. My love for AEB-L has little bound!! :)

I use my artifex all the time at home and I think it's a good knife for the money.

The fujiwara is a good one as well. Great bang for the buck knife with pretty good carbon steel that's super easy to sharpen.

I am in the same boat but plan on ordering stones at the same time. That said would the carbon be better to "learn" to sharpen?

Thanks

That kind of depends.....but probably not. AEB-L acts a lot like simple carbon's when sharpening.

I'd say pick stainless versus carbon....patina versus shiny!! :)

thanks guys,
FINALLY decided on the fujiwara 240 gyoto. so hard to pull the trigger because then there's nothing else to think about buying......for a while. not to worry christmas is coming. anyway when sharpening time comes what are your recommendations for touch ups and more extensive treatments. i have shapton glass 500, 1000, 6000 and a nubatama bamboo 1200 and a MAC ceramic rod. as i said christmas is coming so don't be shy about recommending additional purchases.

regards
j

Great knife as soon as you got rid of the factory edge. Needs a good patina too, to start with. But then you'll love it.
