    OK, this is getting more into the spec's that I am looking for...you used one? How is the profile or what would it compare to? Pro's Con's?

    Tadatsuna looks pretty nice as well.

    Profile, same as tadatsuna, suisin, konosuke. Grind, very thin behind edge, convex along blade face. Steel, AEB-L at 61 rc, takes a very good edge, easy to sharpen, average edge holding (better than white), good stain resistance. Ho wood handles are the nicest I've seen. Excellent fit and finish. One of the best performing gyutos out there. One of the best bang for buck.

    Although the handle is so nice you won't want to replace it.

    I would be looking strictly at carbon in either, but these were both on my list before I posted. Profiles look very good to my eye, but again my eyes are not so good Sounds like both are winners in the f&f category.

    Curious if the Tad and the GG are single steel knives or clad?

    Heat treatment and grind on both have good reputation?

    Masamoto is inconsistent and most other thin knives have a bit more belly than you are wanting. The last time I saw Jon, he showed me a flatter profiled Gesshin/Ashi. I think it was a prototype in stainless but I might give Jon a ring.
