Thread: Looking for 180 mm stainless petty

  1. #11
    I've been very happy with a JCK FS-2 I bought last year. It serves as my primary satay blade for slicing meat into thin strips.

    Perhaps Misono's 440 180mm slicer? Never handled it myself, though.

    Can anyone tell me what the handle of the Western Ginga's (the only one in stock for 180 mm) is made of?

    Nice idea Ben, but I've never tried an asymmetric knife (other than an asymmetric grind). It's not even that expensive, but a bit expensive just to try out. Do you happen to know any place in Holland, Germany or Belgium where they sell similar knives that are asymmetric? Don't have to be really classy knives, but just to try out.

    I believe that's pakka wood. Ashi Hamono states it as composite wood

    Do you happen to be left-handed?

    Didn't you own a Fujiwara FKH 270mm gyuto??
    That one is at least as asymmetric as any Misono, and these have a slight convexing towards the edge on the left side. For most people no steering issues to be expected. With the Fujiwara though, expect an unadequate edge OOTB.

    Ben, yes, I did own a Fujiwara (240 mm). I sold it, but I'm sure it was symmetric. I'm right handed, by the way.

    Anton, thanks. But who is Ashi Hamono? The maker of Konosuke's?
