Re: Exceptional value knives

Takamura VG10 is not new but this Migaki VG10 line seems to have appeared in the last couple months.

At $140 this has to be a good deal: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/tamivggy21.html

Re: What's your current go to knife?

I was also kinda surprised the Masamoto KS didn’t make an appearance. When I started here, that was the unicorn everyone was looking for. For a minute I was curious to give that a ride, but its size (for the 240) and price both are above what I'd find ideal. Regardless, when a new batch drops it st...

Re: Konosuke Sumiro Raffle for Feeding America!

Maybe this is a question for a behavior economist but I wonder, had the tickets been $1/ea, would this have raised the same amount of money? Obviously all conjecture, armchair, etc etc: Probably not because in most people's minds a fiver is no different from a dollar, especially when no hard cash i...

Re: Master Saji Rainbow Series on JCK - wha???

I'm a utilitarian-handle guy anyway, but that thing is uniquely hideous, never seen that before.

As for the blade, I echo bruin's sentiment.

Re: What is your unicorn?

I've never really had a "unicorn" because I use every knife I buy, and these unicorn-types are often so gorgeous, so precious, and so expensive that I just would never be able to use it. For the spirit of this topic, however, if I ignored the cost factor, then I'd want something with a nice heft at ...

Tanaka VG10? 190 x 47 with a no-bolster handle.

The petty from the same line at 157 x 34 might be another option

Re: Poll: Knife Weight Measurements: Ounces or Grams?

A few months ago, Mark started to add grams on newly listed products, so if you're only seeing Oz then it probably an older item.

I don't think the Takamura HSPS Pro is at that "reasonable price point" the OP referenced that the Chromax represents.
That's fair.

Takamura does make 240 but not in Chromax and rather difficult to find in stock. https://mtckitchen.com/takamura-hsps-pro-gyuto-240mm-9-4/ As for alternatives, here are a couple of 240 lasers with western handles for you to consider: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohd2gy24we.html https://www.chefkn...
