Been away from the forum awhile, but once I got my Shig seemed all my questions were answered Anyway I was wondering what the opinions are of the grind of the Watanabe Pro line (blue steel core, SS clad, kurouchi)? Anyone think it will rival my Shig? I love my Shig, and more or less have a handle on the reactivity, but the SS cladding on the Watanabe caught my interest. I mostly slice, but do some chopping now, particularly with the tip. I find the weight of the Shig, especially at the tip to really help with that, and it looks like Watanabe uses a similar profile. Opinions?
