    What is your favorite gyuto profile?

    I hear shig, kono, carter are all major players. But what is your favorite profile of all your gyutos? Personally I Like flatter profiles, suji-esque.

    pictures would help I may base a gyuto from Del Im ordering on it.

    Masamoto KS is the poster child.

    I'm very happy with the profile of my 240 gyuto from Hoss.

    To many this is the perfect profile but I am not a fan and I know I'm probably in a group of approximately 1% who feel that. My personal favourite of knives I've used is the Hattori FH. It isn't exactly hot these days, but the profile is outstanding, has a very gentle curve and despite this has huge flat areas if that makes sense. Another that doesn't get mentioned much is the A-Type. It has quite a wide tip and combined with the weigh of the knife, the tip and the area just behind it is very versatile

    I really like the profile on my new Don Nguyen gyuto. It is a great push cutter and the tip is great for delicate work and trimming silver skin. [IMG][/IMG]

    I'm a tall suji man myself, gyutos never seem versatile to me really, I enjoy alot of different gyutos for alot of vegetable work. But I am really liking sujihikis with a 40mm heel, my Mario gyutohiki is super right now. I like the shigefusa gyuto profile for doing alot of mirepoix and large veg. work, I have a DT, but don't like it as much.

    Devin 240 Wa is right on the spot and the modification to a Shig that Randy and I came up with for a custom has the perfect a amount of flatness.

    I like mine with around 48mm height and lass that say 2.5 thickness at heel. Not a laser per-se but still nimble enough.
