Konosuke HD 210mm Wa-Gyuto. The HD line from Konosuke has the same dimensions as the White #2 line, but is made from a proprietary semi-stainless steel to provide that extra protection from discoloration. Care does need to be taken to prevent rusting, but these knives take on a great patina which will also help to curb discoloration. This 210mm Gyuto is hands down, the most popular knife amongst home cooks. It is the perfect size for the home kitchen or when cutting board real estate is at a premium. It is the all-around multi-tasking blade and great for so many jobs. Heat-treated to an HRC of 61, these blades are attached to a stabilized octagonal Ho wood handle with a Water Buffalo Horn ferrule. As with all of our Konosuke knives, these come with the option of a matching saya.
Thanks for all the help guys. After months of research,I pushed the button. I called just to ask a few questions and Mark was great. Ordered on Friday,came in on Monday (that was free shipping too). I didn’t know that I was ordering a 210mm razor blade. There is no need to further describe how sharp this knife is and how well it cuts. If you have one,you know. If you don’t...,push the button. For anyone trying with this in your choice list,buy it. I dropped a tomato on it from about a foot up...warm butter. I am push cutting without even thinking about it,never would have even tried that before. I felt so bad about it’s blade hitting my regular wooden cutting board,I ordered a 20x15x3.5 inch end grain board. A beautiful knife like this should never touch anything else.
Now.... wa petty anyone? :D

Excellent knife. The wife with her tiny hands even has no trouble with this one. Razor sharp out of the box,and has held the edge very nicely so far. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone.
