Thank you, kindly. Now if I could just make a living off it…MARK <>
Only seems “thick” at the spine because it’s a 210 so there’s not much height to transition through. Here's my 240, and although mine is seemingly accidentally asymmetric, you can see just how close they grind to the hagane. JJ <>
No, it’s not particularly flexible. It is san-mai so the Jigane is soft, but it’s of typical stiffness. It is a delicate edge, yes, but as CEDAR
, explains, it’s a knife – a knife that can cut butternut just like a tomato. BUT exemplary control is recommended with the Yuki, you can literally hear the edge…BLOWFISH <>
As do I. Extremely high performance tools…DOUG/CHIP <>
I don’t think anyone can argue against the Yuki as the hottie in this comparison, and yes, she extends a considerably different sensation when you have her in your grip. It is a sexy knife whose refined fit-and-finish complemented by Kate Moss' frame behind the edge has that special edge over the AS Laser in hand. The AS Laser feels like a much stiffer knife overall, and although its offers a very fine feedback, it lacks the intimacy of Kate Moss at your fingertips.
