    ginsanko is thick blade (most certainly not a laser) that is ground down from half way up. it has excellent food release which aids in cutting. blue 2 is convex ground completely from the spine down to the edge, but food still sticks a little bit. blue 2 is extremely thin behind the edge, so much that it often digs into the cutting board!

    blue 2 is the better pure cutter and is easy to sharpen, but i prefer the actual usage of the ginsanko as it is most certainly a 'beautiful slicer' and much prefer its low pointy nose profile.

    have ZERO interest in any vg10 so can't help you there.

    After reading this thread and watching Theory's video I was seconds away from clicking the buy it now button on the bay for a Tanaka Blue #2 Gyuto, then I realized I would be on vacation when it would be delivered so I backed away. Should I really get one?
