I have a rather robust stable of knives including Masamoto, Carter, Hattori, Konosuke, and others. Lately I have been looking into Watanabe, Shigesfusa, and the Kato. I have no experience with these mighty knives, yet I have read at length the types of reviews found on this and other forums. What i am interested in, is a view from a broad spectrum of users (with real experience) of these knives, focusing on strengths and weaknesses and also any intangibles that come with craftsmanship embodied in these knives.
Thanks in advance.
