    From the knives you mentioned I don't know the Tanaka. Stay away from the Masamoto HC for its perduring inconsistencies in Fit&Finish, bad surprises and high price.
    Between the Hiromoto AS and the Misono Swedish Carbon, hard to choose. As said, very different conception. The Hiromoto has by far the better core steel and easier maintenance, the Misono the better F&F. Both a great performers.

    Yes of course when i say hand forged i mean "handmade", no matter if the forge has been done by pneumatic hammer or by a normal hammer.
    So, between the knives i mentioned in the first post, the best is the Hiromoto AS, altough it is not handmade;
    While the handmade are:
    -takeda (out of range)
    -moritaka( really so fragile)
    -masakage( anyone else used them?)

    And then i find this Sakai..they say it's hand made..
    seems interesting..do you know it? http://www.chuboknives.com/products/...3#.UoZ3B2i9Kc1

    I own a blade from that line branded as 'Yaxell'. Excellent knife, VG10 is good stainless and it's a quite thin blade. Holds a great edge and not hard to touch up.

    tanaka blue steel is incredible for the price it is one of the easiest knives to sharpen gets insanely sharp. it has a few minor imperfections such as a rough choil. if you spend a good hour giving it a bit of love then it is easily on par with more expensive knives. honestly i dont know what it is maybe its the heat treat but the are really good knives. tanaka is a great knife maker
