The Hiromoto is a great knife for a workhorse. It is what it was built for.

the hiro will preform great ootb. but if you thin it out it will out cut a lot of others. they do a great job with the as steel and not hardening it to much allows some forgivness, I thinned mine out more than a tad (not as well as others would have im sure) it now preforms even better for more detail work and just glides through the product better, ive had NO decrease in edge longevity so don't think that it wont still hold up if u decide to thin it out. and im sure u wont be disappointed with the shiro kamo when u get it! good luck and happy cutting

Also, where do these knives http://www.masakageknives.com/knives_hikari.html fall into? Would the gyuto compare more with the sakai or the hiromoto?

Haven't seen that line personally, so I am not sure what the grinds look like. Not a fan of VG-10 though.

VG-10, if HT'd very well is a very nice steel....but I've only ever seen it HT'd very well in the Hattori Forum knives.

Went for the hiromoto, along with some new stones for my edge pro as the others one cracked, and I got the goko damascus as well, as it was too cheap to pass on.
