    Does this hypothetical knife exist?

    I've been very happy with my newly-acquired Konosuke Funayuki/Gyuto and use it for most everything, but still want a thicker knife for heavier tasks. I have a Carbonext for that purpose, but eventually I'd like to replace/upgrade it.

    So here's the gyuto I'm looking for: flatter KS/Funayuki profile, non-laser (say >2.5mm at spine), semi-stainless akin to HD or carbonext. Basically the thicker flat sakai yusuke but in semi-stainless. Some people might suggest the ultimatum, but I'm not overly enthused about 19C27 based on what I've heard.

    So, does this knife exist?

    How about a knife that is actually available for sale now or in the near future?

    What's wrong with the Carbonext?

    Nothing wrong with it -- it's a great knife and I've long sung its praises. I just am craving something with a wa-handle and a bit less belly.

    Hmm, what can anyone tell me about the Masamoto SW 3124? According to the photo in Masamoto's catalog at http://www.masamoto-sohonten.co.jp/catalog.html (entirely in Japanese, which I don't speak), this knife seems to have a KS-like profile. Anyone know what kind of steel it has and where one would even buy it? It appears to be on Rakuten (http://item.rakuten.co.jp/subaru/sw3124/) , but again, entirely in Japanese.

    Heiji for heavier tasks? How are you sharpening it?

    I only use Heiji gyuto once & never have chance to sharpening it. why you ask?? if I remember it right, Heiji has very similar profile & geometry with my Yoshikane SLD and I have no problem sharping it....
