Thanks to recommendations from this forum I ordered a Konosuke White #2 Wa-Gyuto 240. This was ordered after finding that the Hiromoto AS gyuto and Carbonext were out of stock. Any comments would be appreciated. I am still learning. Thanks Again!
Well, I don't deny being a snob but I actually was trying unsuccessfully to be complimentary. Sorry! :scared2:I have a KonHD which is essentially a clone of your knife in a different steel and it is one of my favorites.Ouch!! That hurt!!! lol. I believe in buying quality tools but on a teachers salary and kids in college this was it. Its not the tool of my trade just a blade to be used in our kitchen.
If you live in a fairly arid environment, there's not much to it really, you...I realize it is going to take extra care. What recommendation would you have?...
For the patina to develop evenly, I always wipe down my solid carbon blades with acetone right when I get them to remove any possible lacquer that may be preventing the patina to form.
