2 people found this review helpfulI had spent ages researching a new knife to treat myself with after receiving a job promotion. I wanted something carbon, something rather tall, something hand crafted if possible, and something that had high value.
At that point i considered everything. All the konosukes for their fit & finish, moritakas since they seemed to meet the price point, the richmond addict & laser series, etc etc etc.
I started seeing the goko recommended on the forums in all the threads that pertained to my search. I was hesitant though, no reviews and basically no information were available at the time. But soon after a video review was finally posted to the site and pushed me over the edge into buying.
I'm coming from a tojiro dp and global 210 gyutos. Both fine knives in their own right but i wanted a step up in steel and something a little bit bigger. The goko delivers on both of these and does so with style. The kurouchi finish actually looks a lot neater than I expected. Despite being white #1 carbon I haven't had any issue with rusting but I keep a dry towel next to my board constantly to wipe my blade down. The edge I got from the factory was outstanding. I've had this knife for two weeks now and still haven't had a need to sharpen so I can't even imagine what it'll be like once I hit the stones.
It helps me tear through prep and having a edge that keeps up as well as it does puts me in a good place every shift at work. I feel like this knife is of great value and still wonder what it'd be like to have a konosuke, I have no regrets picking up the goko.
