Re: Looking for a knife recommendation

Hi. I have or had most of the knives on your list, the koishi I had was great, nice profile, great steel, very thin and agile tip, really thin behind the edge. I have a kurosaki r2 that is my daily driver, it doesn't really excel at anything, but it doesn't lack either, not too thin, not too thick e...

Re: “Need” another knife, maybe two
