Are these mizuno's entirely different from the hontanren line?
My miz(really really thin) is the "with shinogi line" model, the normal miz is thicker.
I couldn't find any stainless clad that was in stock and I really liked, so I figured I'd just start looking for a normal clad knife.
My conundrum has been, do I go for a cost effective solution, which seems to be the Tanaka, by a mile, or do I save a bit more and shoot for a more 'high end' knife. Of the 'high end' stuff that could be within my means, the miz hontanren stood out to me (hence why I revived the thread).
What would you do?
Kochi being thinner than classic Mizuno that is, the
Miz w shinogi has a very thin blade almost entirely whereas kochi has medium size blade with very thin bevel.
I have never for example used a wide bevel gyuto in anger and have not had an opportunity to handle a true laser.
I guess it's one of those cases where you just have to pick something and see how it feels, no way around it.
