    that'll be a big knife.

    Huh? I don't have a Hiramoto.

    Honestly, I don't like either choice. I'd definitely prefer a combination of the 2, which is available.

    get rid of both and find a better one that has the exact mix of characteristics that you are looking for. otherwise, choose which ever you feel is the better cutter (ie: easier for you to do the tasks you are using them for as ultimately that's what it comes down to, other things like absolute sharpness and edge retention are just minor details). if it's a must, i'd use #2. prefer wa handle but the blade itself is what's most important.

    sorry it sounded to me like you were talking about a Hiro AS for one of them there....

    I'd probably go with number 2 because I don't love super light weight knives. So lets here what is what?? Then let's see who changes their vote. Or give us the characteristics and price range you want and let us see what we come up with..

    #2. The slightly sharper thing is pretty weak, IMO. I also don't love extra height on my blades in general.
