Mel, I have one (240) but don't want to sell it because I LIKE it! I would love to know your impressions once you find and use one.
thanks!

MJWIT <> My impressions are that they are the perfect Wa, thus my interest in procuring more. And if I may query, if you like it so much, why did you take it off.?!

Then I can't say as I blame you. Adam Marr turned me on to that knife awhile back. Quick question....do you keep the 90/10 edge or do you change it? I've done my best to keep it - don't have an issues with it but wondered about someone else's experiences.

MJWIT <> I now see what has caused this disconnect. You are talking about whole knives; I am talking about handles. The subject finishes with "Wa" which is what I WTB. Potentially misleading, I guess. I did not type, "I WTB: Suisin IH Wa-Gyutos"; I typed, "I WTB: Suisin IH Gyuto Wa(s)." I want the handles. ;)

As for your question, I've used many Suisin IH's & never seen one with a 90/10 edge. Irrespective of what they come with, I sharpen all my double-bevels to a right-hand bias in the 70/30 range. The edge on the IH is so laughably thin, I don't notice a difference in performance either way with a 70/30 or 50/50 edge on these knives. I inherently sharpen all my knives to 70/30 as it comes naturally & performs admirably, for me. I've never had a problem with steering nor wedging, but it's always seemed to give me an edge that seems sharper. I use "seems" because we all know perceived sharpness is a topic all of it's own that encompases many independent & interdependent variables.

Yep, whoops! Now I get it. At any rate, thanks for the responses on the 90/10 - my recollection is that they are "advertised" w/ 90/10. And yep, they are great handles!

I don't think it's such a crazy question. We have a lot of guys here who rehandle knives, and Suisins get rehandled like any other knife.

I've heard people rave about their Wa handles on the Suisin and Suisin's in general, but never had the chance to rehandle one. I have made Octaval handles though with the round bottom/octagon top/sides before though for a customer who also loved that handle style.
