    Low heel gyuto profile for lefties

    Ah yeah hd2 was definitely looked at as well. No doubt I'll have to pick one up eventually, maybe a chromax if cktg puts it on sale for like 100 bucks again as I'm not super hot for lasers. Overall seems yoshikane gets a thumbs up which is good. It seems to hit most of my criteria. Only thing...

    Low heel gyuto profile for lefties

    Curious to hear from the other southpaws, what are our best options for symmetry and sub 50mm heels? I've generally favored taller sanjo knives (many makers seem to provide the best neutral grinds) but lately I've been wanting something short. Most interested in lefty user feedback on...

    Lefty Stay Aways

    The new profile is only in 240 white, and the 210 and 240 sld. They list both the old and new, though that may have changed if they ran out of old profile stock. *270 sld too it looks like His sld is pretty sweet, let my dad use one and hes like a pissed off orc with knives and the edge never...

    Lefty Stay Aways

    Yeah those are pretty, I like burnt handles over the yoshihiro ones, though their handles are pretty good too. I think if I were to go masashi route again I might go for the aframes updated profile sld. I just want to try a 210mm red handle first, since it seems the pro is never in stock, and...

    Lefty Stay Aways

    The other way would be useful as well: which brands are most lefty friendly. So far wakui, maz, masashi and tanaka have been pretty good to me I think, I know I want to try a takamura next. My munetoshi petty is close, I hand picked the more even one between two. Seems sakai tends to have...

    First Gyuto

    Iirc, walnut is generally good as well, slightly softer than maple

    First Gyuto

    edge grain maple will be fine, still better than bamboo and a fair amount cheaper than end grain. There are quite a few other wood options but maple is the easiest one to get in usa. JKI restocks are completely up in the air, and that's mostly on the manufacturer's end. they generally dont have...

    First Gyuto

    tanaka ginsan, jki en, yoshikane skd, all would fill your budget. takamura chromax or r2, jns kaeru, jki uraku would be a bit below allowing a stone purchase, probably a shapton 1k. There are too many good knives that come in slightly over budget ($250 range) to really bother listing

    Looking for a new general use knife.

    If ur going knifewear haruyuki line I'd spring a little more cash for the yokuma/kuma srs15 which is also on sale. My understanding is these need slight thinning to really sing but it should blow you away regardless if you've never used a jknife. Theres a ton of info buried in the forums...

    Yoshikane Vs Wakui

    It's probably hard to judge without a single person owning both but yoshi has a track record of slightly differing grinds between vendors, though that could just be at their request

    Yes I NEED two bunka

    Agreed totally. I'd keep knives closer to where dishes or spices are if I were to build a rack setup.

    Looking to buy a tougher stainless laser to use at work.

    Yes yes I know what jon did for his version but I was curious if anyone has used both just for comparisons sake
