Reactivity has been zero after the first month or so. I've been using my Konosuke 300 white#2 suji lately as my main knife, so this guy hasn't seen that much action recently...need to get him back in the game.
how do you like the Suji vs. the Gyuto? a suji is about the only style of knife i don't own...
I used to be the same...took me a year to get one, and I just got a cheap Fujiwara FKM 270 just to have one at the time. Then I started forcing myself to use as an everything knife, and I fell in love with the narrow blade. Since then, all I've really cared about is sujihikis and finding the perfect one...have a Konosuke HD 270 on order right now, but am probably going to keep the 300 too.
Give one a shot, you might just be a convert soon enough!
cool. i might put that on my list the next time i have knife money available.
not really what most people have....this is the handle on a slicer i have....ryan
Rubber cement and ground beef. I've since removed the patina.
