Thread: Konosuke HD vs Geshin Ginga

    Konosuke HD vs Geshin Ginga

    How do these knives compare. They are almost the exact same price.

    Grind and profiles are similar. HD sharpens a little more like carbon but is less stain resistant. Edge retention is similar. Lately, fit and finish on Konosuke has been spotty. Tough call but I would lean Gesshin Ginga.

    I find the edge retention on my hd a bit better than my ginga. It stays 'usefully dull' for a very long time. Usefully dull is not sharp, but still cutting anything I put in front of it with ease.

    Writing that sentence I've realised I've very high standards when it comes to sharp.

    F&F of ginga is heaps better. I like the profile of the funayuki style hds more.

    Probably hd for me, because I like to sharpen that steel more.

    Don't bother with a cheap chef's knife. Get something good enough to take and hold an edge, with a good enough profile for at least some agility. Forschners are excellent bang for the buck in just about anything but the chef's profile; sadly those are too "German" to be any good.

    Yup. I slept on it, came back and I'm still confused!

    I say Gesshin, because of Jon.

    Oh, I also say Italian ice over ice cream, but not always.
