    Customer service question

    You've just captured USPS business model. "Yes I know you paid for 2 day delivery. Yes I know it took 10 days. Yes I know there's not a thing you can do about it. No there will be no refund" Small wonder that when the US Govt wants to ship something to be there on time they use FedEx...

    Hello and Help with Knife Identification, two birds with one stone !

    Welcome. Other members can speak to this better than I can (but that's never stopped me before...) Classic Gustov are pretty well regarded and would be solid kitchen knives.. But likely no collector value. Doubt the poly handles are anything more than cheap stamped stainless.

    Kenji's knife creds were established when he called the Misen the "Holy Grail". Popcorn worthy pissing contest with him buried in the KKF basement.

    I never use a 210. But have a Yoshi 210 I bought from Maxim, my 4th or 5th Jknife. And it's not going anywhere. Probably be a good fit when I'm old(er) and feeble(er). GLWS.

    Yoshi is definitely underrated in the knife world. They've got the profile, the geometry, the balance, the steel down as well as any maker (and better than most). Like.

    Recommend me a gyuto (white/blue core, stainless clad)

    You want a Gengetsu from JKI. (Not sure if it fits budget - if not, change the budget :cool: ) Yoshikane makes a couple nice variants that fit your requirements, Cleancut's Kashima and Knives and Stones' Amekiri.
