No no, Im just talking about keeping stones minimal.

If the kanehiro is a send back and on sale Id get it asap, but Im on a budget and knives aren't my top priorities.
So Im contemplating about paying $140 for #2 or going "all the way" $180 for the AS because Im not the kind of guy to go back and buy another knife thats somewhat similar.

I really trust your comment on the brittleness of the AS, but at the same time theres so much praise for it.

JP <> As the conundrum continues... :mrgreen:

Buy the AOS, and if you don't like it, put it up for sale. You shouldn't lose much on it if its still in perfect condition. Then go back and buy the #2. 8-)

JP <> I've been thinking about any other way to shed light here, and I was thinking. Have you ever used a ceramic knife? I have a Kyocera 6" Kyotop Gyuto & the first thing that popped into mind when I used my Mori was how there was this peculiar similarity in the stiffness they both exhibit.

Wow I appreciate your dedication to helping me out.
Ive been thinking/praying about it and it probably is better to get the #2, not sure if the geometry is the same tho.

JP <> I can't answer that as I dont own them both, but I'd be surprised if they differed much at all. I'd ask Mark; he has both sitting on a shelf...

Sorry guys,

They asked me to raise the price. They though I was giving them away....(I kind of was to get people to buy and try them). If you compare the Kanehiro prices to Takedas they are in line with them and I think they're comperable knives.

I often will bring new stuff in and discount them to the point where I don't make much money. It's kind of like loss leaders that supermarkets use to get people to buy the bananas or milk at little or no profit. For me I consider it the cost of marketing since I don't advertise I would rather give the money back to my customers for the first 6 months I sell some of these hard to find items. Some suppliers don't like it because they think it cheapens their brands and many of them have set prices where if you go below what they dictate the stop doing business with you. They used to call it price fixing but now it's called MAP pricing. :)

Anyway, when they tell me to raise em I do it. Ultimately it's their stuff.
