    I have a lot more detail on the proposed use on a different thread titled, "help me choose the right knife". I just realized that you get a lot more views/comments if you list actual knives in the title! Sneaky I know, but I'm just trying to learn how to use this site effectively.

    there is a "what knife should i buy" questionaire that you can fill out on our forum that will make it easier for people to help you with selecting the right knife.

    All the knives mentioned are fantastic. I can't see you going wrong with either choice. What's a Gesshin btw? I have the Masanobu VG10 and love it! Great knife.

    I knew I was missing the Ashi, for some reason I don't know what the hell it is it slipped my mind, I knew it was A something, I just didn't want to put like "Aki" or something of the sort to disgrace the name.

    "Hamono" means manufacturer (or was it factory) and not really a name.
