    I would go with the Toyama but they are becoming harder to find

    +1 Toyama

    The edge retention on his Blue #2 is unbelievable, holds a delicate 8-10k edge for months and months on my daily driver gyuto. PM steels will hold a 85% edge forever, but I find well heat treated Blue to stay "sharp af" (95-100% sharpness) for a LOT longer than well heat treated PM (Takamura R2/SG2)

    Just to update this thread. I've chosen the Watanabe stainless clad blue steel 150 petty from his pro line, but without KU. I asked for the option of a polished blade face.
    Will be placing my order with Shinichi in the coming days. Will post pics when I receive it down the line.

    Thanks to everyone who shared their opinions! Greatly appreciated!!

    Mine is Ku (my only Ku knife). The Ku finish is very smooth and looks good. I didn't actually realise there was an option to polish it off. Even so, I am very happy with the Ku.

    Ive been using the knife a fair bit lately to destem chard and kale. Performs well and edge retention not an issue so far (home use).
    You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful knife
    You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

    Neither did I but I asked him in our email exchanges and for a nominal amount more he said he'd do a polished version.

    That's good to hear regarding edge retention. I'm excited to receive it whenever that may be.

    Sounds like you already made a decision, I will add that I’m taking a hard look at hinoura stainless clad AS pettys. Tall blade good edge retention, stainless clad and nice grind.

    Don't throw any more suggestions at me! This decision was difficult enough and I'm terrible at making decisions

    Seriously tho just looked it up and it would definitely jive with my needs. Maybe next time
