All the wonderful edge qualities we’ve come to know and love with other HD knives.0.3
The Konosuke half-octagonal handle is somewhat controversial. Many people find it too narrow,but with my soft pinch and large hands it works extremely well for me. It’s also suited to coming "over the top" so that the knife can be used for chopping even with its relatively low shoulder.
For a 12" knife,the Konosuke suji is wonderfully,ridiculously agile,to the point where I use mine for activities you wouldn’t associate with the length or profile -- chopping and trimming for instance.
Although expensive,it’s high value,in that it’s so much better than others of its type.
If you’re in the market for a long,"laser" suji,and your budget extends this far,get out your credit card and buy it.
