Thread: What's your favorite knife?

  1. #1

    What's your favorite knife?

    Just curious what some of the forums members here favor in their collections.

    Id have to say either my Kono HD gyuto or my Misono ux10 suji

    Since i started buying knives i seem to always want more!!

    270mm Shigefusa Kasumi Gyuto. Easily my best performer (for now). Just makes it a joy to use.

    I also still have a soft spot for my DT ITK 270mm gyuto. Probably my most comfortable knife, and it is the only stainless gyuto I have in my work kit currently, performs great but isn't super thin (still sturdy). Basically it is my beater at work that I don't have to worry about rusting or chipping or bending. I appreciate it being a workhorse I don't have to baby.

    Favorite knife which I own is a Gesshin Ginga 210mm petty. But it's clearly "the best" knife I own.... it's not the most used. Then it's a tough call, but probably (so far) my 10" Sab Nogent chef's knife. I wreck the patina a bit too often (don't ask) and cut too many corrosive things to use it *all* the time, but it's my most used knife, still.

    Ooo... narrowing it down to just one favorite is hard. But maybe I can narrow it down to 3. DT ITK cleaver, Suisin Densho kiritsuke, Konosuke Fujiyama white 240 gyuto.

    Each is so different from the other that I don`t want to have to choose between them!

    "Rottman" 210 suji in Niolox. I don't do volume work with it but I use it very often. It makes me smile every time.
