    Ashi or Misono. Enough said!

    Most of the weight difference may come from handles, burnt chestnut (Gengetsu) is way lighter than that K&S ebony handle (Yoshikane).

    Misono 440 would be my choice. Ashi can also be purchased in Switzerland:Fleischmesser Chefmesser Ashi Hamono Gyuto 240mm Schwedenstahl - Japanische-Kochmesser.ch - Ihr Profi für scharfe Messer No bad surprises at the customs desk when bought in Switzerland!

    TF or Watanabe?

    Sorry, but that’s bs (except your comment that knives are tools)! Many others out there prove that handmade can be perfect - even for much less than the price of a Denka.

    I’d still try it first before tuning it. I mean, maybe you are a lucky lottery winner! There is a shop in Switzerland which carries TF:Fujiwara Teruyasu Denka - Japanische-Kochmesser.ch - Ihr Profi für scharfe Messer

    True that! And it is great to have a reliable person behind that deal, someone with integrity! Furthermore, I'va always had a thing for those red-handled Denkas. I read that those were only available in Japan? Can anyone chime in if that is true?

    I love it when knives aren't good enough the way they are, need heavy tuning which makes those knives fantastic! So fantastic that they're being sold... :LOL: Only part of my comment is serious... I understand that everyone has his preferences and sometimes preferences change, or you just...
