    270 mm suji Mac Pro or Carbonext

    Hi Guys,

    Can somebody tell me how Mac pro and corbonext compare. Can you suggest some other good western ss or semi stainless suji in the 200@ range.

    Can't really comment on either but I picked up a fujiwara fkm suji as a gift, sharpened it and its cut over 600 lbs of fish and is still going strong. Fantastic suji for the money. Quite thin takes and holds an edge that is far beyond its price. Though, I am a huge fan of semi stainless steels. Both the kono hd and my kikuichi tkc's are fantastic but only have experience with the gyutos.

    Thanks for the info K-Fed.
    Isn't the fujiwara on the soft side? How often do you have to sharpen it?

    carbonext sujis are alot cheaper than mac sujis and i gotta think theyre atleast as good if not way better. but i do like mac handles. but the kikuichi tkc suji is the same price as mac also. i dont know, i used to like mac but since their price increase i dont think theyre worth the money-or rather there is better stuff out there that is around the same price.

    The Mac will come with a decent edge, the Carbonext won't, if that matters. The Fujiwara is strongly right biased.

    Looks like CaboNext will be the better choice.

    You could check out this Masamoto in the BST forum. Not certain it's still available, but IMO, would be worth looking into.
