    Thanks for the heads-up, tk59 and NOChoP! That clears up some things.

    TK, good catch. I see the Carter in it now. I've never handled one myself so the next closest profile I had to compare it to was my KS. I'd definitely like to try one at some point (both carter and this knife ). Anyway, on paper this would seem to solve the issue for those who thought konosuke had too high of a tip or mucho belly.

    I can definitely see the tip of this knife being much easier to use than the standard Kono.

    Sharpening skills.... not a chance, Knife skills.. its possible on a good day

    I really like the flatter and pointer profile on knives, I would love to try this knife out, if anyone gets it id like to know what they think. Im sure its quite thin being a Konosuke.

    If you like the profile just get a Carter or a Masamoto KS. Why get the Toyota Camry version?

    very true, not sure if i could afford a carter. I think i will go with the KS, although want to try out a few customs as well. Not sure which steel i want to go with either for my next knife.

    I dunno. It's nicer finished than a Carter or KS and it's semi-stainless. I think there's a niche. Konosuke was missing something a bit flatter.

    Hahahaha, I was going to comment on your Camry comparison as I thought was waaay off base, but knew you were just poking at your hate for Konosuke.
