    OK, its clear from the responses to this thread that the forum has run out of patience with me trying to understand all the different nuances of knives. I fully understand that i ask a lot of dumb questions that can be repetitive and weird,but i will be the first to admit im over compulsive about exploring every angle and option before buying anything. I will stop posting any more generic questions just to get thoughts and stimulate threads.

    Just in my defence, since starting 2 months ago I have ordered product from CKTG, EE and Japan Blades. I am currently working with Boardsmith and Marko on further order.

    I have seen on other forums where a poster becomes humourous to the core of that forum, I can see that im either there or quickly getting there so i know its time to quit.

    Ill just watch from a distance

    Alan please do not let impatient KNIFE DORKS stop you from posting questions so you can gain knowledge of chef knives......I think that's way this forum way made.

    Hahaha, I think a 300 suji is a great all-around knife depending on the individual. I even noticed BDL from the other forum has warmed up to this idea with his 300 Kono HD.

    All of us were new at some point, so give the guy a break. Alan, you'll learn over time that everyone here is so different and wants different things, that a 'pick which one' thread will get you answers from across the spectrum. The knives regularly discussed here are all great for their own reasons...eventually you will know your needs and wants better after gaining experience with more knives that will help to specify your questions.

    Just relax and take it slow, and realize that most knives you will be able to sell if you don't like them for a relatively small loss. Keep asking questions though, otherwise it gets boring around here.

    Alan,

    I never meant to imply that you needed to stop asking questions or participating in KKF. A year ago I knew next to nothing and today what I know is still dwarfed by most other posters. So post away man, don't let my "congeniality" scare you off.

    To the OP. It takes everyone a little time to sort of find their bearings in the knife world. It might seem a little confusing at first, but keep at it. A year ago I had one knife and now I have about 15. Give it a little time, perseverance pays off

    To the OP, don't stop posting. All questions are welcome, even if it has been covered many times before. The least we can do is direct you to another thread. I've asked a lot of what knife to buy threads in the past, I think it's an important part in learning about all the different choices. To answer your original question, I'd go for the Martell foremost, then the HD if you're impatient. You can always get the HD rehandled down the road if you want it to look pretty. I'll even add a new contender for you, 300mm CarboNext sujihiki—least expensive.

    Really though, a 300mm suji is a big ass knife.
    I guess I'm just curious why you need/want one.

    Does anyone here really need all then knives they have ?

    I just want a big bad sharp knife !! is that wrong of me ?

    Hi

    For some reason i missed that range on JCK, what about the VG-10 version, the F&F look excellent and it looks really good, its only available as 270 but thats fine.

    If you want it "right now", then the Martell is out - IIRC, Dave says a few months, at best.

    I think the Hattori FH has the best F&F (fit and finish), and in my opinion the Konosuke HD has the best steel, based on my experience with other HD knives. I haven't any experience with or opinion about the Gesshin Ginga, so it may well be the best of the four.

    Now that IS a stupid question. Of course we need all of our knives...

    Just kidding. Keep posting man. And the next step is lubing your posts up with some vodka.
