    if i were to buy another Yanagi, that would definitely be at the top of my list. i'm pretty happy with my white steel Yoshihiro, though.

    I think Yanagi's in general are some of the most beautiful entities in the world.

    That one looks extra beautiful.

    Go for it. Have the kensaki one myself, and it is an awesome knife.

    No need for 300mm yanagi but if I did I would get that one.

    I use Gesshin Hide mioroshi deba for all protein prep work, includes preparing sashimi for 2 people
    Veggies are prepped with Gesshin Hide kamagata usuba.

    Really enjoy using and sharpening Gesshin Hide knives

    I've been eying the 270 Hide...don't really need a yanagi so I trying to decide between getting another gyuto or the yanagi...it sure is a nice looking knife

    I've talked with Jon about the Hide yanagibas a number of time. I don't think I'm misquoting him when I say that he's told me that those knives are the standard bearer for other yanagibas.

    I've held the 270. The Hide yanagibas have a heft that other yanagibas don't have. It's also not flashy. However, it's a beautiful knife. Absolutely solid feeling.

    You guys are Hide enabler.

    Frankly, its bevel is so darn easy to follow. Steel is very good, and sharpen up easily (probably also because bevel is very easy to follow). So that makes it (almost) ready for work OOTB and very easy to maintain. Its jigane also polishes up very nicely too.
