Re: Konosuke Updates

I’d love to see some expansion of the konosuke YS line. Perhaps sujis, western handles or even 270mm gyutos.

Re: No more Takeda classic?

In my experience the stainless clad versions are thicker overall blades. While the classic has that really sharp protruding shinogi I find the blade to be thinner and lighter.

Re: FS or trade gesh heiji semi

Im open to anything that matches the trade value, except for iron clad knives.
Yeah, a suji would be worth considering.

Re: FS or trade gesh heiji semi

It’s used and has been sharpened several times. I’m not using it often enough to justify keeping.

Actual length is 250mm x 36mm (it’s really a 10 inch suji basically) very thin behind the edge, seems to be somewhat lighter than most heijis. I paid $475 for it bnib 2 monthes ago. Just looking for $360 shipped. Open...

I’m actually curious how the Swedish stainless KS sharpens in general. What’s it like? Kono and ginga stainless?

Re: Konosuke Updates

It’s really great to see kono HD westerns reappear. Any chance we’ll see some HD 240mm-300mm sujis appear anytime soon? Wa or western?

Re: This is a shun killer

I’ve never resented shun for the steel or the handles or the cheap dammy....for me it’s all about the truly horrible profile. Like 4% of all the food I cut I use a rock chop and yet the shun profile in a way encourages the user to rock chop everything.

Re: Gesshin stones, anyone use em and have any feedback?

I’ve owned Atleast a dozen gesshin stones over the years. It’s really impossible to generalize their properties as they’re all designed with different characteristics and features. Gesshin 2k is a little overrated I think, much prefer Jon’s splash and go 1200. 5k isn’t special. 3k splash and go suck...
