Between the addict and laser in aebl is the only difference blade height because they are the same steel? and obviously the laser is thinner thanks for your help so far guys. If my math is right the addict is not even a quarter inch taller

Addict and Laser are similar in some ways, but the Laser is ground noticeably thinner.

The Masakage Yuki and Richmond Laser are about the same thinness behind the edge: aka Laser thinness.

The Yuki will have more weight behind that edge though, just a little bit thicker at the spine and whatnot. Profiles are very similar.

Knuckle clearance is not a problem on any of these knives. Addict is tallest, followed by Yuki, then Laser. Don't know where grand-chef stands up in this, never held one.

I think in all, you might want to go with the 240 Laser in AEB-L. They are thin knives, but they are still strong enough to handle pretty much anything you throw at them. (as long as you don't use your knives as a screwdriver, pry-bar, or bone chopper) (Oh I've seen some bad things done before!) :mrgreen:

Aaron Gibson put my Laser through some pretty rough use, and it stood up very well. The fine grain of AEB-L really does give it nice toughness at that hardness.

my chef was really impressed with how sharp i got the yamashin knife. But, someone used it when i wasn't paying attention and no one really knows that they need to be wiped down so its probably best for me to stick with aebl or a mostly clad blade. is the yuki noticeably thicker than an addict?

ORGANIK <> In reply to your question about Addict as to Laser, they are not only different in grind & height, but profile, as well. The Addict carries it's height much further forward to the tip, & has more belly, as well. Furthermore, regarding height... a 48mm tall 240 & 56mm tall 240 are as different as day & night.

As for reactivity on the AS. It is reactive, but so little is exposed beyond the cladding, it is almost a non issue. If your concern is food reactivity, relax.. it's not going to turn onions black and the like.

The AS Laser has a good bit of the core exposed, around 1/4" or more. But it's not as reactive as some other carbon steels are. I used mine on Onions, peppers, lemons, mushrooms, etc and it has the beginnings of a patina, but nothing really dark yet. The onions sat for a few days in the fridge after being cut up and there was no discoloring on them.
