Re: Favorite unloved knife.

The Mizu, imo, is highly underrated. It is a lot of knife for the money. Mine performed better than my Yuki. I lent it to my brother who has since claimed it. :evil: I figured for sure youd say a tojiro ;) Nah, they have a very outspoken fan base and get recs loads. I think they too are a great val...

Re: Favorite unloved knife.

I think it would be fun to talk about our favorite unloved knives. Knives that are not being talked about on the forum. Ones that don't get the attention they deserve. I absolutely love my masakage mizu, but I never hear anyone ever talk about it. It's a beautiful blade, pretty thin, and stays craz...

Re: Agomi super vs Hap40?

HAP40 all day. The knife weighs 5 oz and i chop so much with it at work my wrist still gets sore! Not because the knife is heavy... Because i swing it all day! Never chips, rolls nada.. Amazing knife. I go all week with one touch up friday morning. The kohetsu HAP40 knives are amazingly tough too. ...

Re: Looking for a push-cutting 210 workhorse to add to the collection - help!

: The SRS-15 is a heavy and over-sized 240. Lots of people love it, but in terms of what you are describing, that is important to keep in mind. A 230mm laser (or any other undersized, Wa-handed lighter 240) will feel very, very different, as did your HAP40. I'm not sure if you need to step down to a...

Re: Looking for a push-cutting 210 workhorse to add to the collection - help!

Though to keep the debate lively, I can say that I had a Kohetsu HAP40 Gyuto 240 (https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohagy24.html) before this for about 3 months (it was stolen off my damn station at work - super depressing) and found I got much better results from it than I ever have gotten from my S...

Re: Looking for a push-cutting 210 workhorse to add to the collection - help!

Also, slightly off track but concerning workhorses. I hear anryu blue2 hammered under that term and it isnt thicker than my ex kioshi Its probably really close to the same thickness as the shibata and my kurasaki laser

Re: Looking for a push-cutting 210 workhorse to add to the collection - help!

The word workhorse means very little and is highly subjective. A lot of pros have read this term as knives they would be willing to use for and would stand up to extensive prep. I don't think OP necessarily wants what hobbyists would call a workhorse. Thats how i was interpretating the request also...

Re: Looking for a push-cutting 210 workhorse to add to the collection - help!

I would honestly think about jumping on a kioshi right now. They r $9 over budget on sale but perhaps well worth it. They can have some decent flat spots, also phenemal edge retention. With peppers knives that let off a little can be frustrating with peppers, because they dont hold thst really shar...

Re: FS Kono HD2 240

Thanks Eversor13. Just trying to look for a good laser. I have a Kanehide PS60 that I got from Spence and like it pretty well but now I've got the bug. So I'm looking for that wicked sharp knife that will make everything feel like butter! This knife is the epitome of what you are looking for. +1

Gladius's rec sounds like a good one. Ive heard people say the shibata kashima is the best knive on peppers theyve used. Ive used mine on some and cant argue against it.

Re: Why would I choose a carbon knife over some of these new stainless alloys?

For example, if i had $130 to get started into the world of jknives and i wasnt planning on abusing the knive or subjecting it to abusive family members i would jump at the makato white damascus in the classifieds right now. Wow, i tried the more expensive makato and it's a whole lot of knive for th...

Re: Why would I choose a carbon knife over some of these new stainless alloys?

You r going to find alot of differeng preferences for steel, but you may just want to focus on getting the best overall knive with in your budget. I think as ahome cook steel becomes alittle less important (when dealing with high quality jap knives like the ones on CKTG) of a factor imo, unless for ...

I definitely like the plus, tweener length, atleast 220 mm. As for the resf this is all over the place, have fun sorting this out mark. Those masahiros( i think maybe thats how u spell it). Had kind of a cool unique all around profile. U carried them for a little bit awhile back. They had a huge fla...
