    what other knives are you comparing the food release to? I'm just wondering how good, or bad, the food release is. Root vegetables sticking strongly?

    I thought the new pictures looked more like the new profile, for example here:

    But if Keiichi said they were the regular ones, he must be right.

    I got the same response from Keiichi last week. The KS profiles are on order (2.2 and 2.8 thickness) but there is no timeline.

    The knife has a gentle spine to edge convex grind which favours ease of cutting rather than food release. Cut a potato in half and it releases fine, cut the half and there can be some sticking. The tip releases better but there still can be some sticking. Take half of a small to medium sized onion and push cut 1cm chunks and they tend to stick. On small to medium sized carrots, cut the thick end and it releases fine, cut the small end and there can be some stickage. I should point out that none of food sticks strongly and a quick flick of the blade removes them pretty easily.

    that sounds pretty good given the price point. I'll just have to wait for the next round of "ks" to come along. Thanks for the input

    are all the latest ones ks profiled? only the thin version is available at the moment, atleast for stainless. can he get custom ones made? i'd like to try this knife but a taller blade, 47mm is too short. and maybe 2.5mm instead of 2.8mm thickness.

    i dont think the new yusukes have the ks profile. i think the listing would call it "flatter profile" or something like that if it was. but i could be wrong. yeah, blue way will put different handles on instead of ho wood if thats what you mean. i doubt theres a noticeable difference between a 2.5 and 2.8mm spine. Even at 2.8mm, the yusukes ks profiles are still real light and thin behind the edge. the 270mm lasers have a 2.4 spine if that helps your decision at all.

    i dont mean handle, but the blade height, referring to how wide it is at the heel.
