    I admit, i would love to know the exact steels in certain knives also. But it really isnt too important at the end of the day, Ive tried numerous swedish steels and there are certain "makers" out there who definitely dont know what theyre doing in regards to bringing out the best in said steel. . Instead, we can hang our hats on the reputation of Masamoto, Suisin Inox and Gesshin Ginga. All 3 brands make top notch quality production knives.
    BTW if I were you I would get the Ginga. or Sakai Yusuke.

    If you want to have fun pick the laser suisin. If you want a workhorse then go with the ks.

    I have both the IH in 270 mm and the honyaki version of the KS and both are great. I have to agree with what others have said though, the IH is just fun to use.
