    Laser gyuto for birthday

    I'll be getting my first laser gyuto for my birthday on the 20th, but I'm torn between the Kono HD2 and Richmond AS. I'll be working on a line and need something that will stand up to hours of use. It would be great if you guys could compare the two knives: edge taking, edge retention, how it feels on the stones, etc. Feel free to toss out recommendations. Thanks for any advice!!!

    yeah i wouldn't recommend either of those..
    the sakai yusukes and suisins are top notch, as well the gesshin gingas are great.
    think of the world of kitchen knives as a small global community, buy something from a person who seems decent, i think that's really important personally

    If you have the opportunity to handle some nice knives side by side you should take it. You can be around 50 stunners but one will haunt your dreams. That is the one to get. Laser or not. Let Jon be your Shaman. It'll be a good trip.

    These are all great suggestions but you asked about two specific knives so if you're set on these two, go for the Konosuke. If you're open to other options, follow the other suggestions laid out before.

    Besides the obvious advantage of being able to handle the knives side by side before purchase, Jon is a stand up guy to work with. He'll make sure you get the the knife you need (or at least the knife you want), not the knife he wants to sell you. He'll also spend as much time with you as it takes. Only problem is he's in Japan until the end of the month.
