Ok so i was planning on purchasing all these myself later on in the summer and my gf saw my list on my computer and her and my best friend chipped in and surprised me for my birthday.
-Konosuke 240mm HD Gyuto(was actually going to go with the TKC but im going to give it a try and so far im highly impressed with this knife so i may decide to keep this)
-Tojiro ITK 270mm Bread Knife
-Tojiro DP Honesuki 150mm
-Tojiro Stainless kitchen sheers
- I also purchased myself a gesshin ginga 210mm petty which is probably going to be my all around favorite knife to use so far
the rest are-
-misono ux 10 7" santoku
-misono ux10 240mm suji
-shun classic 210mm chefs knife
-not sure which brand but single bevel usuba 7"( never gets used)
I have gotten to use each knife and love them all especially the bread knife just cuts through anything like butter! The honesuki works great on ducks really like how well its performs when i first received it i thought it may be a bit short but it works fantastic.
The gyuto is also amazing, i love how thin the blade it i have read many reviews on this knife and some people said it was somewhat delicate and i dont seem to think this is true from my experience.
There is only one knife im currently debating on getting soon as soon as my budget will allow it which is the konosuke 210mm mioroshi deba.
Want to thank Mark and Jon for the great service and knives!
Going to try to upload some pictures on here but if i cant figure it out i will post a link to picasa.
