Might be worth waiting to see which Kono Fuji's are sitting in Dave's office. I believe they should be hitting the site in the next week or 2
I'm hoping for a 240/270 kurouchi gyuto. The kurouchi santoku is just sexy, but red heads(santoku's) aren't my thing
If you can't wait, here's my list of gyuto's I think every jk enthusiast should at least try once:
True laser - kono HD, Yusuke, AEB-L laser, etc.
Work horse - Kanehiro, Goko W#1, Shiro Kamo, etc.
Scary thin edge - Richmond laser, Yuki, Kono Fuji, etc. (haven't handled the Shimo, might fall into this category)
Top shelf - Teruyasa Fujiwara, Suogo Yamatsuka/Hirotsugu Tosa(Takayuki Damascus and Ginsan), Keijiro Doi, Kiyoshi Kato, etc.
A true Honyaki
