Re: HAP40 Yanagi?

Its actually call ni-mai (awase). Take a look at this and you'll see the cladding types between single and double bevel. http://zknives.com/knives/articles/jpnknifecladtypes.shtml So basically only one side and the top get clad.

Re: What Gyuto to get

Well HSU, you've got 3 quality suggestions, albeit blind ones without input. Chime in about budget, edge profile, cutting style, etc., and we can help narrow things down.
