    If you opt for the Konosuke, you may even want to consider a 270 since, as I mentioned, they run short, and are incredibly light.

    +1 Konosuke HD. You can't go wrong. Tosho is about to get a bunch more in as well. I suggest the 240 at least, since they run short.

    Sorry to go briefly off topic, but how do you get a choil shot like that? I'm guessing not with a smartphone. I've had no luck getting a good focus on close shots with my iphone.

    Tojiro Western Deba seems to be a popular choice for rough jobs like that. Thinking of getting one myself.

    I think the Tojiro is probably what I need. I'll just suck up the fact that it doesn't have my preferred handle in favor of function.

    Hmm, that's odd -- the A-Frames website says the Ikkanshi Tadatsuna is 2mm at its thickest point and describes the blade as "very thin." Perhaps they've changed the design?

    I'm certainly open to a heavy gyuto, though not a cleaver. But I'd want a pretty thick one, at least 4mm at the spine. Any suggestions for a lower-end gyuto that fits this description and can take...

    Fair question. No, I'm not a lefty. But I have no experience with single bevels, and this doesn't seem like the best place to start, as I don't intend to use a deba for its intended function, but...

    To clarify, I'd like a big, bad deba that I don't need to baby, basically the Tojiro Western but with a wa-handle.

    Deba question

    Don't know if this knife exists, but can anyone point me to a Western (double beveled), wa-handled deba in stainless or semi-stainless? Preferably 210 or 180 and preferably under $300.

    I was going to say the same thing, but didn't want to come across as too much of a Kono booster, plus I have no experience with the Ginga or Yusuke. If I did have one tiny criticism of the Kono,...

    I haven't found stiction to be much of an issue with my HD. It's an inherent issue with lasers: because they are so thin, there isn't enough metal to work with to build in convexity. However, to...

    If you're thinking laser and you're open to semi-stainless, I'll make a pitch for the Konosuke HD line. Practically stainless -- you'd have to leave it in the sink for a long time to have any...

    I will call myself an outlier here and say that I use a 270 (actually 262mm) gyuto and a 150mm petty and more and more I've been wishing I had a smaller gyuto for certain tasks. There are quick...

    Rick tested out a ton of knives last year, focusing on stiction. Should be very helpful:
