RAY <> That knife is appropriate for splitting or wedging, but won't be the most appropriate for shredding.

JEFF <> All three of your knives are perfectly suited to shredding cabbage, and both of your prospects are... well, I don't have to reiterate my feelings of the HD nor do I need reiterate concensus on the AS Laser. Considering you have two laminated blades, 1 carbon & 1 stainless, you are acquiring one mono-steel stainless, AND you don't own a Konosuke, I can't see you not getting the mono-steel HD. I'm sorry, but they really are all that...

Thanks Melampus, I appreciate your thoughts. I must say that the HD is at the top of my "Want List".

Yeah, I would say the Kono HD, maybe even a Funayuki 270mm HD2; longer flat spot and I have a 240mm Funayuki Kono HD here (Very nice by the way!) and the extra length may be helpful (longer flat spot maybe?) in the 270 vs the 240, which runs a bit shorter since it's measured from the machi to tip, not heel to tip. Thinner spine really helps with shredding cabbage I found in the various 240mm's I have tried.

About how short does the Kono 270 run?

I believe it runs about 260, but it will feel close to a 240 in terms of nimbleness. A 270 Kono-"anything" is going to be a serious blade, hear me now and believe me later. :)

The Gyuto runs 260, and the Funayuki runs 275.

Thanks for catching that Mel and giving lengths of both. It would be just like me to order the Funayuki expecting it to be 260!
