    Best Knife Profile

    Which knife you think has the best shape/profile?

    State your cutting style.... Push cut, rocking, etc.

    type of knife... gyuto? suji? etc...

    This is so subjective, that you will find one or two answers from every member.

    For me, I like the profile, geometry and steel of the Ichimonji Matsuhide TKC for a 270 gyuto. But that's just me. I usually push cut with very little rocking unless mincing garlic or herbs.

    As for suji, something thin with great steel like the TKC/Carbonext steel would be my preference.

    Like a few, but favorite are Shigefusa and Masamoto.

    I do quite a lot of rock chopping so I like a slightly rounder gyuto profile. The Hattori FH profile is perfect for me. I'm on the lookout for more knives with this profile and I'm gonna try a Watanabe next

    I must say that that Masamoto profile looks great. Not that I need the temptation, but where are these honyaki ones sold. CKTG doesn't have them in. Is there another vendor?
