+1, and that Kono is awful nice for the price!

"A wise man once told me if you are trying to decide between and suji and a yanagiba, you want a suji."

...do you recall who the wise guy was?

...and I agree.

The Kono HH, if you decided to get it through the forum special, would be a great knife for a thousand purposes and would be fine for a lefty. The HH line is thin and I don't think you'd find many suji better suited for cutting fish. In terms of bang for your buck, the Kono would be your best bet, easily. The only question I have is how often he would use such a long, thin knife. For many home cooks, 270mm and so narrow is superfluous, you could as well give him or her a sword for as much kitchen use as it would see. If you think he'd benefit from having a sujihiki in his day to day life, I'd grab the Konosuke in ten posts. Otherwise, Mark's done all the lefties a solid with the Kitaoka.


The suji really seems like the more practical choice. They do a lot of hosting/dinner parties and i see this being a great addition to that. The Jedi factor of that long slender knife is pretty awesome.

Himself wrote:Not very many, if any, knives are more elegant than a 300mm yanagiba.

The question might not be "How often will he use it?" rather "How much will he enjoy using it?"

The fact that you gave it to him will just add to his pleasure.


This is where i started at, but i think I've come around to the suji. Still there with you on the length. Worse case scenario is he loves it so much I decide to also get him a yanagi next year :P

Excellent choice. I'm looking for more roasts to cut just so I have something to use it on.
