    I love that little Carter IP paring knife, that is pure decadence...

    I most often still reach for one of my first ones, a Hiromoto AS 240. It has a handle made by Fish and I wanted it shaped like a Nenox hamdle, so it feels really comfortable. Still one of my favorite ones also, although I do admit to liking my Carter 6.3 sun funayuki with rosewood and ivory handle.

    My go-to seems to be my Misono Moly 210 gyuto. My favorite is my Rodrigue Pettysuki. I'd say it sees about 30% of my tasks, while the Misono sees 40%. The other 30% is split amongst my Carters or Swede and parer.
    Strange...my two most used knives are stainless, but I thought of myself as a carbon guy.

    For me, toughness and durability/ease of use are tops right now. I guess that's why the two "number ones" are what they are. When I want carbon, I instinctively reach for my Carter suji.

    I usually have my Gesshin Ginga shironi 270 gyuto and either usuba or kiritsuke in reach. I much prefer using single bevel, but need the versatility of the gyuto.

    Good stuff guys! I guess this is as much a demographic as anything. I find it funny that some are posting that their go to and favorites are not necessarily the same knife. I am hoping to add the Gengetsu soon...That might just replace the Kono

    Well, you don't want to waste your favorites. Plus, as you use 'em, you're gonna have to change the geometry as you go along. Once you sharpen a knife maybe 10 times, it's a different knife, completely. It's sad, really...

    Unfortunately, I don't eat king crab daily. Often, but not daily
