    OMG you live near Jon. Absolutely no brainer. I'd love to see his shop and meet him in person. Plus I've got a deba that could use some of his love.

    Go to JKI! Already been said. I love the hand-written note I get from Jon or Sara when I order something from JKI. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. LOL. As to the laser, you'd probably be getting a Gesshin Ginga. It is a fine fine knife.

    I'm going to wager that after he visits Jon's shop/store/museum he'll he leaving with have more than a Gessin in his hands.

    I'm going to agree with everyone else and suggest that you pay a visit to JKI. Jon's knives have an incredible reputation and you'll get to try them out before buying them, which can save a lot of hassle. Jon's/Sara's advice would be invaluable too.

    Have to agree. Can't help but laugh tho'. Things change so quickly around here. Not so very long ago, people were foaming at the mouth over the Konosuke. ;-)

    I think we all agree that konosuke's are great but now they know it and the cost has increased to where they are close to the price of a mid-grade custom from makers on this forum.

    Also seems like being on the line might not always be the best fit for a laser (though you know your situation and what you want better than we do).

    Just got a hd2 240 and have to say it is expensive but very
    Nice. Not really much of a flat spot if that matters to you.
    I thought it did to me but after the first use it was all over!
    Wouldn't be my choice for line use though.

    Konosuke HD is an awesome knife. Semi-stainless carbons are just a wonderful hybrid of two worlds. Unless you are unlucky and get a faulty one, what's there not to like? It cuts like a demon.
