Mark, good evening,
I have bought several knives from you, thank you. I want to purchase a workhorse 240mm Gyuto made of aogami super. I really wanted to buy your Richmond laser, but noticed it is out of stock, do you have a time frame to receive more? Obviously there are some great knives in this category so I wanted to get your opinion between the Moritaka, Takeda classic, Kanehiro and the Masakage.

I am a professional chef, so am looking forward to this purchase.

Regards,
Kurtis

Hi Kurtis,

There are several knives that would work well for you. Try this Ikeda. It's a sweet knife, with great profile, nice looks and really nice semi custom handle and it uses Aogami Super steel. It's a sweet knife:

If you want to wait for my AS Laser I should have more in the next 2 weeks. I have 40 more coming. I'm having a hard time keeping up with demand and my little blacksmith shop is asking me what's going on?! hahaha

Tell them to stop asking questions and get back to work Mark!! LOL.

The Kanehiro gets rave reviews as a workhorse. The AS Laser is VERY thin behind the edge, but has the heft and feel of a medium weight knife. The Kanehiro may be better suited to rougher tasks because it is a little thicker behind the edge.

Yeah, that would be my suggestion as well.

Thank you Mark and everyone's suggestions, very helpful.
The Hiromoto is amazing, but I really like the handle on the Ikeda, and the blade looks beautiful. Just to confirm, the way it looks in the pic it is octagonal correct? I am left handed. I do have a 210mm Hiromoto western style that I use a lot, but prefer more traditional.
Best, K.

Another question, any comparisons between the Ikeda and the Kanehiro?
And congrats on the success of the Lasers.

<<<<Another question, any comparisons between the Ikeda and the Kanehiro?

I haven't used either, but from what I have read and seen, the biggest difference is the edge profile. The Ikeda is obviously flatter while the Kanehiro has a more familiar profile. I haven't used a knife with the Ikeda profile, but if you do rock your knives when you cut, the Ikeda probably wouldn't be ideal. Also, if the handle on the Ikeda is the same as the one on the Richmond AS laser, then it should be slightly slimmer. The Kanehiro seems to have a bit of a shoulder leading into the convex too.

MrKnifeFanatic has used both the Kanehiro and the Masamoto KS which the Ikeda is similar to, you should probably PM him.

Check out a photo posted by MELAMPUS on this thread to get a great side view on the Kanehiro.

The Ikeda, I believe, is in stock. However, Mark got them sans handles and is having Isaiah make handles for them. I believe that's right....I remember Mark saying something to that effect a few days ago. I would expect them to come back in stock on the website soon.
