    Did the Mizuno have a thicker grind than the Tanaka?

    Thanks Labor, this is quite interesting for me as it shifts my reference point a little. My Mizuno (from the same batch from James as yours I think) is probably the thickest, most convex ground knife that I have (my Yoshikane is probably close). I love it for veggie intensive prep (home use) because of its great food release, and as you mentioned, a good profile.

    I guess what I'm getting from this is the idea that there are thicker knives with even better food release around. Can people throw up some names?

    The comparison I'm making in this instance is to the kono Fujiyama blue 2-not wh2, or any other variation.

    My Mizuno wide bevel was much thinner than my Tanaka and better knife after all!

    +1. But also more expensive. Miz has much thicker spine than tanaka KU also.

    Or I'm wondering if it's just that my perspective is very much narrower.

    Does your miz have big bevels? Like halfway up the blade?
