In the case of the Konosuke Stainless, Ashi Stainless or even perhaps a Sakai Yusuke (Bluewayjapan on ebay) they are considered "laser" knives right? Would I be right in assuming they are a little more delicate compared to other beefier knives? The better question would be are they suited for the same cutting style as thicker gyuto's? I may have to leave them for a future purchase (after I buy a Nakiri, Lefty got me hooked on his!).
In my searching I couldn't find exactly how a laser is different just that they are, I would love to know why though.
