I was just reading Stephan Fowler's thread on his new suji (which looks awesome), but there was a comment in there about the (desired) flexibility of suji blades. I didn't want to pollute that thread, so here is my question.
I don't have a suji but will be looking for one come fall, so what are the advantages of one with more flex versus less flex?
For some reason, I have Hung's video in my head where he uses a Misono UX10 suji for a cutting demonstration. Right at the beginning he shows how flexible the blade is by pressing it on the counter. Because of this, I have always thought of sujis as more flexible. Video below.
So basically, I am suji ignorant. Anybody have some buying tips?
With that said, in the end I may just go for one of Pierre's or Butch's knives.
