    Which standard konosuke? It would FAR outlast either edge (stainless or whiteII) but it wouldn't keep the scream as long as the carbon. It's closer to the Kon HD but I still think it doesn't scream as long.

    I not have KMG back then. But yes, that would have been ideal.

    so, i had a henckels cermax for a while (still do - never gets used tho) - these powdered steels are crazy-annoying to sharpen [for me]. i like the fresh-off-the-stones feel, and if zdp can't give that same feeling longer than the HD, then what's the point, really?

    I'm sure that besides the price of the steel the time grinding and the amount of belts/stone needed for a monosteel ZDP knife factors big time into the high end price. On that Canadian site they even mentioned the Kanji imprint not being as deep as usual due to the steel properties.

Of course, there's tax and if you're not in Toronto there's domestic shipping to add on as well.

    I'm not sold on the ZDP version of the Konosuke gyuto for myself, but I'm glad the option is out there.
    No tax being charged yet so..good time to buy

    Oh, really? Prices are tax-included? Nice!

    Too bad there isn't anything I need to get from their selection at the moment. Need? Want? Ah, whichever

    Considering the 20% chromium content.... nope. Would be a pain in the ass to work with, a ***** to thin, and a whole lot more expensive.

    Sukenari also had done Honyaki ZDP yanagiba
    Once a Japanese knife, always a Japanese knife -> Once a Carbon, always a Carbon -> Once a Honyaki, always a Honyaki <3
