Onky kono that ended up being a keeper for pro use was the ys. Konos look and feel great, but for pro use, I need a little more than that.

Re: Help me find a Big bad prep beast!

I used an hd2 for about a year as my main knife, but the edge retention and food release sucked, enough for me to move on. Lasers are fun, but there are better options out there, at least for me.

Re: Need Recommendation for Gyuto 210ish for Rocking

The skd is made by yoshikane, and while thst shop puts out excellent knives, they do not excel at rocking. While i can get away rocking with almost any knife, Tanakas knives lend themselves to rocking very well. Any flavour will do, and they are all great. My tanaka 210 in r2 is my favorite knife. T...

Re: Stainless or stainless clad beater workhorse.

A ryusen blazen could fit the bill, it is an outstanding knife, top notch fit and finish, excellent goldilocks grind, virtous distal taper, super thin tip. Everything is rounded and polished, the steel is easy to sharpen, and keeps and edge forever. This is the best western handled knife for a pro e...
