We love your site.
My wife & I are looking to upgrade our knives...we don't use the rocking motion much, and have never used wa-handles before. So far, we're getting a Mac Pro Utility 150mm & a Tojiro 270mm ITK bread knife, now we need a gyuto.
While I'm very curious about the 270mm, my wife is not. Shall we stick with 240mm? or should I get 270mm and let her use our old 8" sharpened up (We're getting an Edge ProFull Monty, and have a large cutting board.)
-Mac 9 1/2
-Masamoto VG 240mm

I took off the one we don't carry since I've never tried it. The Tad we discontinued a couple years ago because the Konosuke is basically a very similar knife and I like it more and it never sold.
Get the 240. It makes no sense to freeze your wife out on the fun if she's not going to use the 270. I find 270s too large and I'm 6'3" tall so unless you're doing prep work at a restaurant go smaller.
Of that group of knives I like the Konosuke. It's really fun to use. All of them are good knives but that one stands above the others I think.
Get it with the ebony handle. You won't be dissapointed:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohdkigy24we.html

The konosukes are very light and thin. A 240, although probably larger than you are used to will not feel like it because it is so light.
Very nimble knife that almost everyone enjoys using.

I would have gone for this Kono if it were in stock:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohdfu24.html

Kikuichi TKC 240mm....you didn't specify which Kikuichi, so I assumed!!

I just find that the HD has better edge retention than the HH at a better price as well......

He chose the HD Custom with koa handle we had. That was a sweet knife.

Not a bad choice, me thinks!
