    They are good knives, reliable and consistent, tons of people own them and love them...just like Toyota Camry's.

    Little known fact: the knife in my avatar is the Kono-clone Sakai Yusuke gyuto.

    That makes sense, everyone has their own opinions on what they like for different reasons. And ya Ricks deba is pretty wicked knife.

    And interesting about the display picture.

    i have a funayuki hd 240mm on order. i already own a white steel #2 kono 270mm and i look forward to getting something a little shorter, flatter and semi stainless for work. i would love to own a carter but theyre really out of my price range. next best thing maybe?

    I'm actually contemplating one of these in 270mm. I'm curious if anyone has any more input in regards to the funayuki over the past year. Would love to hear some pros/ cons. I've already spent time with a kono nakiri hd, some I'm already familiar with the steel without disappointment.

    (slowest reply ever)

    I have used one. Other than it being quite short for a 240mm, I enjoyed it very much. My anti-kono stance is based more on the common white/hd ones. And I'm half joking.
