More or less what the title says. Line cook with a fine dining background currently working out in Colorado. I enjoy using nice tools for work and occasionally spend money to make that happen. I like tall knives and relatively non-reactive steels that feel nice to sharpen. Daily driver is a 210 Masashi Koi and its just about perfect in every way. Recently picked up a Yoshikane SKD santoku for an on line knife, not sure how I feel about it. Cutting performance is phenomenal but the heat treatment feels a bit hard and brittle for what I use it for. We'll see what I think after a few sharpens. Gesshin stainless 150 petty for small tasks. Down the road looking for a 240ish laser and a thinner petty. Looking forward to being around here more!

Hell yeah CO! Big city or mountains?
The Yoshi has a really thin edge, after a couple sharpenings it’ll thicken slightly, and feel sturdier. They’re great knives, give it a chance.

Mountains big time, Crested Butte/Gunnison County.

That's exactly what I'm hoping for with the Yoshi. I use my Masashi which is a similar steel and grind (though different heat treat) for almost anything and I was surprised by how much more fragile the Yoshi felt ootb. LOVE how it cuts though, I'd be sad if I went back to doing shallots with my bigger knives again

Weird, the steels are really similar, and Masashi trained at the Yoshi shop. Well, hope it works!

Crested Butte is fantastic, what a great place to be.
