Re: Blade Steel

I think Shun universally gave VG-10 a bad name. I've used some very good knives with VG-10, Kurosaki Magumi being one. As mentioned it all depends on the smith and HT. A good VG-10 knife will outperform any Euro stainless. It is a much better steel than it's reputation would suggest.

Re: Recent Work

Looking good Carter! I'm a big fan of W2 tool steel and as far as reactive, about the least reactive of anything carbon I have ever used.

Re: WTS Mazaki 240 gyuto

What does this knife cost new? I paid $249.89 to be exact. Right now I see it listed at $228.52, but sometimes it seems it can be slightly higher at checkout with exchange rate but idk for sure. The knife is barely broken in, still in pretty newish shape. And honestly for any less I might just tell...

Re: Laser gyuoto, 210 or 240?

It comes down to what your intentions are with this knife. If you're buying the knife for just fine and delicate cuts there is no reason not to consider a 210. If it will be for everyday prep along with fine and delicate cuts I'd stick with a 240. And I understand about profile preferences, definite...
