I deliberated since last year to pick up this knife.0.3
I can’t say enough how happy I am with my 1st laser gyuto/funayuki.
It us a great knife with no wedging,great kirenaga,beautiful fit and finish. All the other itamae I work with were drooling over it.
Sharpening is a breeze. Use 2k and then finish with the 6k. Great for all types of cutting and slicingI for prep. Would never cut kiritske. But great for makimono. I do not have any HD knives but believe that for great ease of care/ durability the HH line is great. I think when some people say the sharpness and kirenaga is superior to the HD line I think they are splitting hairs and that for most professionals it is probably one of the best bang for the buck knives out there.
I would say my only complaint is that it is called a funayuki. I wish the sori (belly) was less curved and it had more of a true funayuki profile.
And lastly can’t say enough of the service from cktg. The personal care and dedication to what he does and his family as well,make cktg a pleasure to work with. Thanks for doing what you do.
