So I'm looking for a stiff sujihiki that will take an hold a toothy edge. It would be used mostly for carvery so crusty meats are something that I would like to be able to handle. I was thinking perhaps the Kanehiro Ginsanko 270mm Sujihiki would fit the bill, but I have no idea of the spine measurements or whatever to give me an idea of how flexible the knife would be. I'm open to carbon knives as well but I was hoping the Ginsanko would hold a nice toothy edge for an extended period without being overly difficult to sharpen (I could be wrong). I'm basing this really on my experience with my old Tanaka Ginsan gyuto which was an old favourite of mine.

Cheers

AS Laser 270mm Sujihiki. It's a thick, well convexed beast with a strong edge! No flex to it, slicing powerhouse and the convex helps food fall away from the blade. I posted a choil shot a while ago and it's nice and thick behind the edge, opposite of most of the AS Laser line where are very thin throughout and stupidly thin behind the edge.

I can't offer you any information on the Kanehiro and there aren't any stats on the page. I will add at the price, I'd also suggest checking out the Kurosaki Megumi http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kumesu27.html in VG-10. His knives have been getting quite a few excellent reviews from members here and I had a chance to play with one the 240 gyuto in this same line a couple weeks ago. Awesome and eye opening for me. SteveG's video seems to indicate it might fall into your stiff requirement.
Hopefully someone else can chime in about the specific knife you asked about.

I have the suji Taz recommends above. I bought it on his recommendation. It would also fit your requirements is under budget. The core steel is AS, but I've yet to have any patina form on my edge and I don't wipe it until dinner is finished.

I had a quick look and it appears to be out of stock for the time being, although it could possibly fit the bill if I can wait..

+1 on that pick TAZ! Stick a nice handle on it and you've got a killer Suji at a good price.
