    LOL, why? I'm a home cook and my 240s do just fine in place of a suji.

    Just buy one suji. You’re missing out on a lot of fun. Think Toyama, Marko, or ginga.

    Slicing with a gyuto is just not the same as using a suji, believe me. It will bring you Joy. I can loan you mine if you'd like.

    Ashy, you mentioned in your first post that you supplied all the materials to Tony Laseur. Where did you source all these different woods and metal spacers? Really loved all the handles, the Mazaki KU and Kato in particular. Really nicely done.

    Sorry to say, Ashy, LOL is right. You need a suji. Even if just for the fun of it.

    And I've gotta say, I'm a gyuto guy and I totally dig your collection.

    There you go... enabling done....

    Raquin or Toyoma would be good choices unless you can get your hands on a Kato

    After you first posted about getting a suji I immediately went to JNS and looked for a Toyama. Unfortunately, they're all sold out.

    @Barmoley was selling a toyama suji in the BST two weeks ago. I didn't see that it sold. Time to reach out?

    I sure like mine!

    Sujis are a lot of fun, my second favorite profile after Gyutos. I have a Toyama 270, a Kono 270, a Hiromoto 270 but I need a 300 Suji. I’m jealous of your Toyama 300. I’m on the hunt, which is half the fun anyways.

    You’re not playing around with this collection. Do they all get use?
