Re: Harukaze G3 Nashiji Gyuto

I'm not getting my Harukaze until Christmas, which is a bit of a bugger really :cry: :cry: I just keep seeing it sitting in the pantry, but can't cut with it yet. However, I have inspected it to make sure that it was all present & correct and was pretty impressed. The edge seemed to be pretty good ...

After reading a few of these post me might go ahead and pull the trigger on a Konosuke gs+Togatta 240 for my new knife.
I recently purchased one of these. It is an amazing knife for a great price. Don't hesitate.

The specs make it seem laser-ish. Jeffry and chocu1a, is that how you would characterize it?
-ish. Kinda, sorta, maybe. Its thin enough.

Re: Harukaze AS Morado

I have the santoku in this finish. It is a great line knife. Takes a fantastic edge & looks really nice. I get tons of compliments on it. I am sure this gyuto is just as nice. I was deciding between this & the g3 240 & went with the g3, since I didn't own any blades in that steel. If these are still...

Re: Harukaze G3 Nashiji Gyuto

Is the flat spot a bit bigger than on the AS series (assuming that's your other one)? I really like that knife, but I wish it had more of a flat spot. My other Haurkaze is an AS santoku.

Re: Harukaze G3 Nashiji Gyuto

Just received mine today. I gotta agree its a hell of a lot of knife for the money. Its nice & thin. Has a decent flat spot, with an acceptable up-sweep to the tip. There is an interesting wave to the entire spine. Almost like a texture. Fit & finish is surprisingly well done for the price. This is ...

This is such a good deal on such a praised blade. I almost went for this, just for the bargain!
Me too. I already have 2 knives coming and really had to restrain myself. Glad it sold before I caved.

I am such an obsessive/compulsive over knives. But there is always something I get hooked on. It used to be computer parts. Had to have the not-so-latest & greatest pc.
