I'm considering a 210 mm laser gyuto. The ones I'm eyeing right now are a Konosuke HD and a Gesshin Ginga. Both get raving reviews here.
Which one should I choose? What I read here is that the Konosuke is semi-stainless, whereas the Gesshin is fully stainless. What does that mean for their ability to take an edge? I am a pretty accomplished sharpener. Edge retention is less important.
Also, are they both true lasers, particularly thin behind the edge? No flex, however, is important to me.
Any other knives I should consider?
