Hi Everyone! These forums are great, but seriously dangerous!
I'd been living here in Japan for years, oblivious to the wide world of Japanese knives beyond the Global I brought with me... until a few months ago when I decided to find a nice gyuto for a very good friend back in the U.S.. These forums were a huge help and I ended up buying a 270mm Konosuke HD.
And I thought I was done, problem solved. HAH! I used the Konosuke when I delivered it to my friend and now I'm totally hooked. Uh oh. Can't stop thinking about buying a wa gyuto for myself now.
So I figured it was time to register, introduce myself properly, and get some advice on a new knife. Hopefully I can limit myself to one, for now anyway!
