Quite an arsenal you have there!

Do you work in professional kitchen? What is your favorite or gets the most use? What are you looking to add next?

Western kitchens only actually. And yes, professionally. I was on the fish section for awhile but mainly I'm obsessed with sushi. The Masamoto KS Gyuto was my main worker, that was for about 7 months. I've been using the Mizuno now and just received the KS Suji which I'm putting to heavy use on the line.

Really all I want now is a Shigefusa Yanagi and a Honyaki.

To me, the KS is worth the slight up-charge. The bevel came almost perfectly flat and it just feels like a better made blade. Even though it's 30mm shorter, it is significantly thinner and lighter. That said, the KK could be great with some more energy and time spent on it.
