What is a g type? I have a nenohi nenox with a blue bone handle, but I don't know what a g is - green handle? Nice knives but spendy and mine never comes out of the vidmar any more as I have better knives in my kit - if you want a nenox, get a Konosuke HD2 blade instead. Only drawback is the TV crowd won't know what it is

Nothing against the g type, but Mark does have 240mm Kono HDs with Western handles on close out for 300. Worth some consideration. I haven't used Nenox, but my impression is that the steel and grind of the HD may out perform after viewing some of the high-end Nenox at Ai and Om a few weeks ago. No idea about the g type, though—perhaps they are ground a bit thinner and have a higher heat treat.

That said these are very different knives—I don't mean to digress the thread from you WTB request!

Having Nenohi and Konosuke stuff, I would far rather jump in the Kono bandwagon. One of the best knives (and not that expensive) is my HD2 240. Mark sells stuff that works, Korin sells stuff for looks. If you have nenox money, look into a custom - my CHII blade will be joined with another soon - best cutter in my kit - can't say enough about it. Every blade is a personal thing, and I'm learning what works for me every day - nothing perfect, but I'm learning what I like

I dont have a nenox, but i do have a ryusen blazen, and it is a really nice western, i have a feeling that it would outperform both the nenox and the kono hd. Also worth looking is the harukaze srs15 western, at a much lower price point, and an amazing knife too.
