We just received the start of a new line from Konosuke that we hope will have a little better availability. This line is called GS which refers to the stainless steel they use in the knife (as usual they don't want me to disclose the steel but it's not VG-10). They're similar in size, shape and grind to the HD2 and HH lasers so I'm putting them in the Laser section even thought the blacksmith is not the same. If they're popular I'll expand the line. We just got these yesterday so I'm sorry but I have not tried the knife other than to run it through some paper.

To reward some of you early adopters we're offering a 30% discount on the 150mm pettys that just arrived. We also got an equal number of blond and black horn ferrules so I made a drop down so you can choose which one you want. I hope you like these. Coupon expires on the 20th of this month. This is a forum only deal and I won't be advertising it anywhere else. To get the discount use the coupon code: konogs

No post count restrictions on this. One per customer please. If we sell out that's it but I doubt this will happen. Please don't ask me to hold one for you until you get your tax refund check or other windfall (this is a common request lately since you guys can see our inventory).

I haven't tried a coupon restricted to a single item before so if it gives you trouble please email me.

Here is the petty: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kogs15pe.html

Are these replacing the HH, or just additional offering?

Ideally they will replace the HH so I can have all available production from that blacksmith go to the HD line.

As much as I'd love to get one I just don't need another 150mm petty.

Hi Mark, these are san mai, right? Not monosteel? And I believe with a PM steel? I'm assuming they are like the GS series that Tosho has been selling for a while (but which I've never seen)...

Yes we are. :) I turn down stuff all the time that is made from VG10.

Sorry, I'll fill out the page with specs and a choil shot (it's difficult to shoot these since the choil is small). I'm always in a race to get stuff on the site and I skip steps and make mistakes. We need to hire another person that can help me.

I'm pretty sure you currently have more knives than you will need for the rest of your life. ;)
