Guys - not to hijack Steveo's post but what are your thoughts between Moritaka Supreme 165mm and the Masakage Mizu Petty 150mm? Both nice and tall for that mini-G thing. I like the deal on the Moritaka : http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mosu16pe.html
and the savings on the Masakage http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mamipe15.html
. I know that both are going to be reactive.
Will use between a Shun paring and a gyuto to be named as well as a german 8" for the heavy going.
