How about a compromise? One cut, well placed.
Lucky you! Three solid options to choose from, none of which would be a wrong choice.
BTW - Why is Hattori on the list?
I've no problem with reaching back and pulling out a SWAG. When it's presented as such. Me thinks you are offering anecdotal experience as something
I like the FKM better, nothing against that knife also check out the Gesshin Uranus at JKI
The Hattori is a really nice piece, but I've always found the bolster too squared off, coming into the blade face, and thus didn't really click with it.
