    I'd love to hear what tips or ideas you have after using yours for a while. Being both new to that knife as well any quality knives makes me info hungry lol

    My first step up from Henckels/Wusthof/Sab/etc!

    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...wa-gyuto.html#

    I must say, this thing is a revelation. Cuts thru veg with almost zero force, and leaves a surface so smooth I want to carve an inscription on it. Time will tell on this, but so far does not seem to be very reactive.

    Balance and weight very different from anything else I have (almost weightless and balance not nearly so far back as my other knives). Still getting used to this, but it's not what I'd call a hardship. It's my first wa handled knife, which I like so far. Only minor regret is the length - I chose 210 over 240 so it would be comfortable for both my wife and I to use. I wouldn't mind having the extra length. On the other hand...she seems to like using this knife as much as I do, so I expect there will be more in the not too distant future.

    After selling off and trading a big chunk of my collection over the last month, this week I started seeing some new toys arrive! 3 Shiges, 1 Carter, 1 Kato and a Heiji. I have a feeling these will be staying for a while! [IMG][/IMG]

    The Wa-shig came about 3 weeks ago, the rest turned up this week! A couple of them werent planned but sometimes when the opportunity arrises you have to jump on it.
