I like looking at your Gengetsu - almost as much as looking at mine. Smiley.
I have the same one (but right-handed) and it was also a b-day present to myself, it's an absolutely stellar chicken processing machine! Goes through an entire flock of birds and keeps begging for more! Edge retention is awesome not to mention the patina it develops from cutting chicken in really nice.Left-handed Misono Swedish Carbon Honesuki. My very fist honesuki, for a birthday present to myself, loving it!
The weight and feel of the Misono honesuki is spot on for me personallyit's making me eat more chicken. I've used it for fish occasionally, though I'm not as skilled as this dude in the video!I have the same one (but right-handed) and it was also a b-day present to myself, it's an absolutely stellar chicken processing machine!

Fine, if you're into the New Haven curved tip bladehappy with mine. I like the plastic handled one more, slightly thicker blade. I find the rounded handles a little difficult to grip. Works for small to medium sized oysters. For larger oysters I use the Japanese oyster knife on the right.how do you like the r murphy oyster knife? ive been meaning to pick one of those up.
Personally, I don't use the term 'overpriced,' knives just cost what they cost—'overpriced' is subjective. My 270 lefty Shig yanagi and 240 Kato workhorse cost $600 and $550 brand new when I got them. Thought they were pricey back then, current prices are way beyond my financial reach now. Some view TF denka as 'overpriced,' I feel they're worth every penny.Many people said now shigefusa is overpriced, for kasumi shigefusa can get honyaki knife
Cheers. I've considered putting a stop to buying knives. Haven't cooked a supper party in about a year, cooking for two surely can't justify incoming knives. However, knife buys have kept me sane, offering a bit of happiness in these dark times.OMG, your knife & photo skill is tempting me.
