In the interest of having a little fun...ChipB just sold a Moritaka KS, after trading off his Masakage Shimo 210 Gyuto.

Now we all know he's going to get another knife :-).

A) If you know the stuff he's bought already, do you have any suggestions?

B) What do you think he'll end up buying?

Ready, set, go!

Oh and ChipB, give us a list of your current Gyuto lineup, then sit back and watch the show!

I think it's time for a slicer or a nakiri. Time to branch out!

Chip, get the Gihei nakiri. You know you need one :) , they're super fun to use. I love my Tetsuhiro nakiri and use it everyday despite initial reservations about the blade shape and its potential versatility. And if the specs are correct (1.35 mm on the spine), we know we can count on you for a review since no one has posted one so far.

Mmm, he doesn't have an SG-2 Saji yet, does he? I'm betting that or maybe a Sukenari ZDP.

So we know for sure it'll be a 240. I'm gonna go for the left-field suggestion and say either the Kujira or maybe the Josh Dabney. Possibly a honyaki, but not the Masamoto one (doesn't have that certain romance). Maybe a Kono honyaki with the right handle. Possibly a Nubatama.

I think he's sold or tried to sell everything he's bought so far, he's a hard man to please!

I don't think he'll be happy until he get's a Kono HD2, but he'll still try to sell it the next month. :geek: :mrgreen:

I believe he is happy with his Shig and Kato, so how about keeping the high-end knives rolling with something like a Nubatama black steel? Or a Konosuke Honyaki? :D

Honestly though, I have to agree with Jeff B. He needs a Konosuke HD2. I personally just couldn't be happier with every Kono purchase (3) I have made.

Ha! This is hilarious and, true. Current knives:

Kato 240
Kato 210
Shig 240
Haru 240
TKC 210

I did fill in the 240 gap left by the Moritaka literally an hour or two ago. In the interest of continuing the fun, I'll list what I was considering (all in 240 except the nakiris)

Masakage Zero
Kono Fuji W#1 Damascus (no handle)
Masakage Kujira
Kato Kurouchi Nakiri
Josh Dabney gyuto
Hinoura (Mark's line not the River Jump)
Harner Nakiri

Still undicided on a suji, and my wife would definitely notice it on my rack vs. a gyuto so more s'plainin to do with that one
