alrighty mark, i need some direction, and you always seem to be good at that. i think it is time to get a 240 gyuto. i am almost certain i am set on a carbon steel. so the question is, konosuke or takeda or tojiro, perhaps something i have overlooked...one of your knives perhaps. i think last time you pointed me in the takeda direction. just wanted to double check. i take very good care of my knives and i am looking for a 240 that will last for a lifetime. and i am certainly looking for a great all arounder. unlike some of your other customers, i don't have the money to be buying chefs knives every other week. thanks again sir. cheers.

Hi Eric,

The Takeda 240 Gyuto is a great knife. They're thin, hard and tall. That one is hard to pass up.

Check out the Tanaka Sekiso gyuto's. I have a 240 and it's now my main go to knife, period. It's almost 3mm at the spine, but it has an awesome convex grind down to the edge. Even on potatoes and onions, which are notorious for sticking and wedging, it just goes right thru them almost on par with my Tanaka Nakiri, but with less food sticking to the blades. I have been raving about this knife for the past few weeks. It's one of the few knives OOTB that I was happy with the edge and was sticking into my cutting board for the first few times using it.

Unless you know you want a tall knife I wold stay away from them. For me the just create more unnecessary surface for food to stick to or have friction against. I currently own the 210 Takeda and although it isn't a bad knife it doesn't do anything better than my Konosuke.

ERIC <> I concur with CGFS, in that, a Takeda is a HUGE knife. It is only for someone who likes a crazy super tall knife.

Do you.?!
