La Vie - (I just recently looked up that French phrase BTW
), the Kanehiro Ginsan and Tetsuhiro Hammered W#1 150 Pettys were AWESOME
. Both great knives - the tip on the Tetsuhiro just glided through onions like a ghost. I only wish the handle were slightly smaller, as on the Kanehiro. I also think the Tetsuhiro Hammered finish is one of the coolest on the CKTG site. The Nashiji finish on both Kanehiro Ginsan knives was VERY nicely done.
Two other favorites were the Kanehiro Ginsan 210 Gyuto and of course the Anryu Hammered 240 Gyuto, although it is a pretty large 240 blade. The Anryu is wicked looking in person (as you know
Also, the Richmond AS Lasers are bad ass knives - not super flashy, but ground for true performance - very nice!
