Thickness? The TKC is comparable to the Kono HD/HH. Kono Fuji are 2.88..so just a hair thicker.
Though, as attractive as it might sound to have a thin agile knife, you have to consider your cutting style. If you chop...thin is not good. If you push-cut/slice...yes. I don't chop with my chef's/gyuto's.
I like the MS custom TKC too. Not a bad deal for $300.00. Considering this one also. Do I forego the custom handle and save myself $110?
