Thinnest non carbon laser?

Sat Oct 26, 2013 5:37 am

Any recommendations on the sharpest/thinnest non-carbon laser? I can only seem to find the Richmond series in AEB-L. Are there any other stainless lasers that are thinner?

Off the top of my head, Kikuichi Swedish Warikomi Damascus, Suisin Inox Honyaki. Im sure there are others.

JONATHAN <> In addition, the Konosuke HH <--link is another penultimate laser.

Konosuke and Suisin are both anorexic.

Melampus, so the Kikuichi performance TKC is considered a laser?

JONATHAN <> You're the first one to bring that knife into this conversation. No, I don't consider it [TKC] a laser, per se. It is a very thin, very light knife, but not exactly a laser. As close as you could be though.

Bear in mind though, there is no absolute quantification. (E.G., 2.2mm is : 2.28mm is not) Doesn't work like that...

Melampus,

I know this is a separate question, but would you recommend the kikuichi Swedish over a konosuke hd for overall performance with regular gyuto work (chopping/dicing veg and some slicing proteins)? It seems you are very impressed with the kikuichi, and I know you're a proponent of the hd. Being thinner is enticing, but does that give it an edge overall?

Just to make sure we're all on the same page.....I believe the Kikuichi Mel was talking about is this one:

I concur with the previous posts as well. The Richmond Laser AEB-L, Suisin Inox Honyaki, and Kikuichi Swedish Warikomi are the 3 thinnest stainless knives on the website that I can think of. Konosuke HH is right there as well. If you want to get slightly thicker there might be a few more options such as the Sakai Takayuki line. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/satajadawa.html
