Phew! After months of researching knives, learning how to sharpen using stones via JKI vids and asking a lot of questions from you guys.....I think I finally got a combination of quality knives that works well for me. Here they are all together:
Konosuke 270mm gyuto + Suisin inox 240mm suji + Blazen 75mm paring (CadilacJ, if you're reading this, the Suisin's handle is 16mm shorter than the Konosuke's and slightly raised).

Sorry the pics look a bit washed out.

I would have switch sizes with the suji and gyuto but a solid looking line up!

Beautiful knives! Really nice board too. That looks like walnut. Is it a BoardSmith?

I'm loving the suji. It's like the 270's little brother that just flys through potatoes,tomatoes and any other toes :). I'm very happy with the performance of the kit so far. Thanks for the kind words and the nudges in direction.

I like your style, bud.

Glad you are liking the Suisin IH...that suji might just become your primary weapon of choice soon.

And just wait until you start getting good at sharpening...a whole new world will be opened up to you, and appreciation for your knives will increase even more.

I like the set. Really nice choices, in my opinion.
If it wouldn't hurt so much, I'd think about going a similar route, and have only my 210 Misono gyuto, Carter suji, Rodrigue pettysuki and my Sab parer.
Your suji looks great, and Caddy might be right. It could very well become your #1.

Actually, they are all Japanese. Nakiri are no taller than a chefs' knife. Perhaps, you are suggesting the OP switch to a chinese cleaver.

i think he was referring to a parer (euro) instead of petty (japanese)

Way to go! Very nice start. And for some a finish. But not this group.

Actually, I made my self and my wife a promise that when I figured out what knives are a good fit for me, I would cease and desist any further purchases that are "wants" and not "needs". After 5 or so weeks, I'm confident and satisfied that I made the right choices. At least it doesn't mean I can't look :)

I'd like to add that I did replace the Suisin (which now resides in my home kitchen and seems to be the answer to my to-tall boardsmith prep area) with a 210mm Kono HD. It feels very similar to the Suisin minus the taller heel.

No doubt those knives are a good fit, but are they the "best"? Only way to find out is to try them all, good luck telling your wife.:D
