    what are the extra tall gyutos available that are not carbon?

    thinking about trying a wa gyuto and would like a tall blade. any feedback on the extra tall konosuke hd? what about an addict 2? my current favorite is masamoto vg 240, extremely sharp and very agile without being whippy and that wonderful profile that's a perfect balance. the handle is a bit heavy though.

    Takeda's are probably the tallest out there AFAIK.

    *****Butch Harner in CPM 154 stainless, purchased from he who shall not be named. Some are as tall as 68mm, but pricey at $650.

    For a WA - the Takedas are very tall.

    no chop, extra tall masamoto stainless with wa handle would be amazing! but not if its going to cost over 250.

    olpappy, i was looking at those, but the profile appears to have a lot of belly, any opinions on that? how is the geometry, i'm under the impression that lamson made knives are kinda thick behind the edge.
