Still unclear on where to post this so I thought I'd try here.
For the past three years Ive been rocking a Misono carbon 240 for pretty much everything at work.
It's awesome except it's so worn down that balance has become an issue.
It's so handle heavy that fatigue is becoming an issue.
Three years seems to be my upper limit on work knives... the last one snapped at the bolster.
I love cross section of the Misono, nice and thin but can still take a beating.
I'm on the fence about getting another one, a Blazen, a Haruyuki, or a Hiromoto AS as a replacement.
If I go the Hiromoto route i'm gonna get a 270 and clip the tip down to 250(mostly for the flatter profile)
So with all that in mind, can anyone shed some light on cross-sections of my choice?
If anything else pops to mind let me know, it's gonna be for work so i guess it boils down to:
push cutter wants a:
taller than average profile
great edge, great steel (really leaning to the Hiromoto with a thinning)
flat-ish profile (or a good onion-sized flat-spot at the tip)
thin behind the edge (but not takeda thin)
to be used for almost everything
with the Misono as a base level of performance.
I'm only two coffees deep at this point, excuse the post-quality, I'm sure I missed something....
