What the hell is a "Gyuto range?" The mightiest gyuto I have ever seen is the Mizuno honyaki. Easy. Nothing not named "deba" even comes close.

range [reɪndʒ]
n

...
13. a rank, row, or series of items

You referenced Muzuno honyaki. That is one "range" or line of knives that Mizuno makes. JCK sells 4 different "ranges" (or lines) of Mizuno knives. Obviously just answering "Mizuno" wouldn't have cut it, you had to specify honyaki, which is what he was looking for.

Sorry. I didn't mean to make it sound like a bad question. It's just that the Miz is such a beast.

I guess I should have written: "Gyuto range?" The mightiest gyuto I have ever seen is the Mizuno honyaki. From what I've seen, nothing not named "deba" even comes close.

My bad.

Bummer. I would have liked to have contributed to the answer. What, it was up for how many minutes?

@ Welshstar, Perhaps you should let others respond as well?

Salty


When someone responds to a question with the first words " what the hell is " it indicates they are pissed and angry at the question

Im very sensitive to not starting any flame wars or environments where even dumb questions are jumped on, so my course of actiom was to just retreat and delete my apparently dumb question so as not to further inflame TK who has much higher standing than me in the forum

lol... i think you're taking this a bit too seriously. I'm pretty sure no offense was meant nor was the question stupid.

also, for what its worth, even within the same line, some sizes can be mighty while others thin. Better to ask about a specific brand/maker and size

Jon is right hoping people will lighten up. Sorry you had a bad day others may have as well. We never know.
Maybe a maguro bocho tuna knife or a Watanabe kujira hocho (whale knife) *like Bishamon's for a mighty knife.,or Salty's The Queen Mother of all knives *Mizuno Tanrenjo 390mm special blue steel honyaki yanagi.
Maybe you are just looking for an actual gyuto style either way seeing those knives will cheer you up if you see them.

I would bet my two weekends ago against it -- though I might still lose.

Edit: But I am not betting against Son. I know his was worse than mine.

Hmm.. Can I use a week last year. I want to play. Like a Jerry Springer Show. Involved my wife, my wife's stepbrother the kids called uncle that was a multiple degreed black belt, video cameras, photos, texts, emails, abortions,the hood of my car, jail, dropped charges, lawyers saying they would have done worse, dropped charges after quitting a job for severance money to pay bail bonds.

I had a little "history" I have been sober 22 years, but that was a bad week only time in recovery to spend a night. Wanted to do much worse defending my family,but didn't need kids having to "visit." Love my kids and they need their dad. I like my life boring. Don't like drama. Haven't for years. Play with the kids,hang out with the wife, pet the dog, cook, etc.

Hmm, job is up in the air, lost nearly half my life savings in a stock deal related to said job and how everything that management has been promising and saying from the moment I was hired basically went for a toss when the big no.1 & 2 men were fired. And 6 hours before friday morning, everything looked set, and career was taking off with the new role and I was planning a tour to europe. Now I'm wondering if i should sell some **** that I don't need just in case.

Life does get weird. I'm glad for my health, and the love of the most ridiculously understanding woman I've ever met. Doesn't hurt that I think she's beautiful.

Hang in there Salty, I hope it slides off and nothing comes of it for you.

Yep. I get it. I have lived a right way of life for years now. Hang out with a good crowd. Joe Pfister who started Saber fishing rods and ran Seeker fishing rods. A little group of us fish, go out to eat, and meet once a week for coffee. My kids run up and hug me every day. I make their lunches, do homework with them,etc. Hopefully, I am done with any Karma. The light at the end of the tunnel isn't a freight train. This too shall pass. Hope it improves for you.

well thats a mess.

in my experience having a license to carry is fine but if you are actually carrying a loaded firearm its cause for major concern and harassment.

i used to carry and belong to a few gun clubs but no longer to me its more harassed then hanging out at the dope boys houses. dope boys grease the palms though and carry throw away pieces. gun clubs from what i know are upstanding people that enjoy owning and maintaining their firearms and abilities.

"According to the report, Sebastian called one of the police officers “a rookie multiple times and was swearing and being belligerent about the arrest. Scott said the Caledonia Police Department was the Gestapo.”"

That's the Scott I know....lol

This was after hanging out @ INdustri and talking knives? Oh lord, now I feel responsible.......

(For anyone not familiar, concealed carry has been a BIG deal here in Wisco, and this story will get more publicity than it deserves...)


Sorry Andrew; hadn't seen your post, as I was typing my response....)

To drag this thread back on topic. Off the top of my head, Watanabe, Heiji, Mizuno. Why do you ask Alan? Have you been using thin knives and want to try something a little different? I think I like knives that are at opposite ends of the scale, as in knives that are either big and mighty but well ground, or else lasers that cut very well.
