Hi All,

Lurking for a while but nothing to post/share till now. The bug hit. I am treating myself to being a good student and upgrading. I have a kit2 edge pro and use it and always trying to improve. I have a tojiro dp 210 gyuto and want a 240. I figured I might as well really treat myself. I love the thinness of the knife and it is fun to sharpen. I did have to work on the handle and round the choil a lot though. What I don't like or wish I had more of was height.

The two knives I am considering are the kikuichi Tkc and Addict 2. Any thought/opinions? Should I consider others? It will be an all purpose home knife. I am not a line chef just a graduate student. I don't want carbon even though I sort of baby my knives. Just a good solid all-rounder.

Thanks!

The Addict 2 is CPM-154 stainless steel. It will be a bit harder to sharpen, but should hold it's edge longer. It's a very tall blade, too, so it will give you more height. The Kikuichi TKC is a semi stainless; it can still discolor, but not as much as other carbon blades. Not sure about the height of it. I think both would be god choices!

To add to the mix since it is also in the length and price and steel wishes.

Konosuke HH Stainless Wa-Gyuto 240mm NEW! http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ko24wa.html

My cutting style is a hybrid guillotine/slice for everything with rocking for mincing if that helps with blade profile. I would like it to be enough of a step up from the tojiro in quality and have different cutting geometry. Not looking to get the same knife in more expensive version if that makes sense.

The Konosuke HH is a good knife and in that price range they're hard to beat.
