Well, these are all great knives you listed here, and you would do well with any of them... but let's narrow it down a little more.

The HH is the only stainless knife of the ones you listed, so I imagine you have no problem with carbon knives.

So, are you looking for more of a "featherweight" type knife, or something that has a little weight but still thin behind the edge, or in between?

The Moritaka has the worst finish of the bunch, but maybe the best blade steel. Grind is pretty good, medium/thin, medium spine/weight

The Masakage has a very nice finish, maybe the thinnest behind the edge of the bunch. Grind is very nice, medium/thick spine, medium weight

The Konosuke White #2 is the thinnest overall, and pretty thin behind the edge. Grind is "flat-ish", thin spine, featherweight

The Konouke HH may tie the Masakage for thinness behind the edge. Good grind, medium/thin spine, light weight

I can't comment on height though, maybe someone else can chime in. They should all be pretty close I can imagine, suji's aren't known for being tall blades.

Can't answer the height at the heel, sorry!

The Konosuke White #2 would be my favorite amongst those. It's going to be super thin, and I like white steels a lot. F&F will be second to none.

Thanks guys
I would like it to be in between thinness, since its going to be used as more of a utility,
I dont want to have to thin it.
As long as its at least 40mm tall at heel..
And the konosuke's run a tad short right? (length wise)

You won't have to thin the Konosuke.

All of my Konosuke's have run a tiny short, or spot on.....never long as I recall.
