    This definitely connects some of the dots for me, so thanks for this. Hadn't read about the sitting thing before.

    Man, so if I go ahead with the higashigata then I have to get a mukimono too. Yet another excuse for a new knife!

    Or maybe just get both usuba types... it never ends.

    That was my solution - buy both shigs. With this maker, the square one is thinner with a bigger bevel and thinner behind the edge. I like the goofy look of the higashigata and it works well for most veg requirements. They are both 210s which is a good size for me. I have a 225 kamagata which I find a bit large.
    Everywhere you go, there you are.

    That's a good advert for the higashi then, I'd say. Surprised to hear it's thinner! On the other hand, I don't think it looks goofy.

    210mm - exactly the size I'd had in mind.

    Bram as a side note are you near the flooding going on up there. I lived in Toronto about 10-12 years ago and for some of that time lived in the Etobicoke area. The photos I'm seeing look really gnar-gnar. Hope you are safe and dry

    Thanks - no, luckily I'm out of the city right now. Sounds horrendous!
