I have a mizu suji, and pretty happy with thinness behind edge on that one, might take a look there too as It is blue #2 where the yuki and shimo are w#2. NOT stainless clad but the kurouchi does add almost the same effect as a stainless clad. almost same height a little heavier but just pointing out another option. what ever one you pick im sure youll be happy. all great lines.

White steel will sharpen easier and take a slightly better edge. AS steel will hold it's edge longer than white steel. These differences are very slight and only those with the most keen of touch could tell a difference.

There are no absolutes when it comes to reactivity other than carbon is.

Jeff speaks truth.

Most users would be hard pressed to tell Wt from AS steel on the stones, in cutting performance, or in reactivity. Grind, heat treat, and other measures of craftsmanship become more important here. I do not have personal experience with either the Masakage line or the Richmond Laser AS line, but I cannot imagine you would go wrong with either one.

Honestly, if it were me, I would likely go with what is in stock today :D

Joseph - get the Yuki. You will not be dissapointed :-). If you are going to cut citrus and the like frequently w/your petty, IMO SS clad carbon over a fully reactive blade is desirable. The Yuki will put a smile on your face every time you use it ;-).

Hey, no big deal. I actually used to mistakenly label the Shimo as mono steel. Doh!

I have found AS to be slightly less reactive than white steel. But not so much I'd buy based on that.
