    Rebuy the same knife? Mizuno DX Gyuto or something new?

    I bought my 240 Mizuno Gyuto to work in with a small stable of others, it rose to the top everyday as my workhorse -i loved it so - re handled it after a year - thought we'd be together forever. But I have sharpened, n thinned it too much in four years - it is no longer the all arounder it once was - only 40mm at the heel now, closer to 210mm than 240 heel to tip, w/o heft it once had - it is a line knife now(albeit, best one in the world). Now I need new gyuto.

    I am on the shelf for the next 6 weeks with a torn achilles - so there is no sense of urgency here - but when i return to work, it will be with a new knife in my hand.

    So, if you were me, would you buy a brand new version of the Mizuno or would you get out there and try something new?

    Other knives under consideration - Masamoto KS, KAto, Shigefusa or maybe I can swoop in and score a Marko. Open to any other suggestions too.

    This is my main man. No longer the workhorse Gyuto.

    Who made the handle? That yellow wood is awesome looking.

    If I was in your shoes, I'd definitely buy the same knife. There are two knives in my kit I'd buy again and again in a heartbeat. A harner utility I bought off the BST section of the old forum and my sugimoto 210 superlative yanagiba that's my "beater" line knife. Certain knives just click with you forever!

    I'd then see if Stefan could make that handle once more, as it looks AWESOME!!

    If you love the Mizuno then buy another Mizuno.

    Agreed. If the Mizuno makes you that happy get another one. I am still trying to find that kind of knife for myself.
