Thread: Which 240mm wa-gyuto in $200-$300 range? Flat-ish profile

  1. #21
    I'm really looking for something in carbon, a little longer than the Ginga, and with flatter profile.

    You can't have too many lasers. They are such a pleasure to use in a home setting when stiction is less of an issue. Guests gasp when they cut through carrots. Konosuke (HH, HD), Sakai Yusuke, and Gesshin Ginga are all essentially the same in profile, grind, and performance. I haven't seen the flat profile Sakai Yusuke's available for sale for weeks. If you're right-handed, there's almost nothing that cuts thinner slices than these asymmetric lasers. They cut thinner than my usuba. Maybe it's my technique.

    Itinomonn. It's not flat, but it's worth the trade off.

    Those are pretty curved. It was the main reason I sold mine.
