    Gyuto help

    Hi all,
    I will be looking for another Gyuto in the next couple
    months. I'm interested in something with a more flat
    profile. It seems from pics at least that Mizuno, yoshikane, aritsugu and masamoto ks would all be potential candidates. Most interesting at this point are the Mizuno akitada blue 2 or a yoshikane in skd.
    I'm curiouse if anyone has any insight on these two knives
    and if they do in fact have a flatter profile/less belly compared to say a konosuke or suisin. Also, is there a term for gyutos with this shape? I've heard the term torpedo but that's it.
    Thanks in advance.

    my Mizuno 270 definitely has a flatter profile than my Konosuke 270. the Mizuno is a great knife.

    love my Shigefusa. the Shig has a little bit more of a curve than the Mizuno.

    Nice, that's good to hear. One can only tell so much from pics.
    Does the edge come in around the same length as the konosuke? 260'ish?
    Thanks

    the Konosuke is a tad longer. here is the mizuno next to the Shig (the shig is a 240, and the cutting edge is exactly 240mm). hard to tell in the photo, the Mizuno is a tad flatter in the hand. not a big difference.

    you can compare the Konosuke to the Shig in this pic, though it's not at a perfect angle for it...

    Awesome knives! I must say that of the knives I've been comparing I keep ending up with the Mizuno at the top of my list. Something intriguing about that knife.
    Thanks for the pic and info.

    the Mizuno is a great knife. when i first got the Shigefusa i was immediately smitten with it, but i've come to use both knives about the same amount.
