Hi, I am looking for a carbon wa-gyuto, and since I like the Hiromoto AS I read on this post that the Kanehiro might be the Hiro with a wa handle.
Has anybody tried the knife and also the Hiro? Do they perform in a similar way?
Any info would be great,

thanks,

guga

I briefly tried the one I photographed. I'd say the two were similar with the Kanehiro being a little thicker. Can't attest for the steel but the F+F were good, decent balance that's a hair blade heavy and an attractive blade with a moderate convex grind.
