White #2 steel - my favorite
This is simply a great,light,super sharpe knife that is fun to use.
I love quality white steel.This is a fine carbon knife,nice handle,buff. horn,thin light blade.When you cut with this,you know you have a great tool in your hand.0.3
Well,this would make the third purchase of a Konosuke. Now,I’ve never purchased three manufactures knives. Never. But,when they get it right,it’s hard to go to something else. Thin and light and gets very sharp. It is reactive since it’s white #2,but a little TLC and it’ll pay you back tenfold. And the usual great service from Mark. 0.3

This is a really fantastic gyuto! A real laser. The edge it takes is spectacular and edge retention is great. Geometry-wise it’s very close to ideal. It’s also way less reactive than I expected.0.3
This is easily the lightest knife I own; it weighs in at just under 5oz! That’s five ounces for a 240mm gyuto! Amazing! Even lighter than my Nubatama.
This is a Five Star knife in every way. Highly recommended.
Ootb edge was surprisingly good. Fabulous fit and finish,perfectly smooth transition from handle to ferrule. As said many times before the blade is a true laser,this does lead to a good bit of sticktion but this is the price you pay for such a thin knife. Just a bit of flex,nothing crazy. Ran it through a week at the restaurant on all sorts of things and it’s not nearly as reactive as I thought it would be. All in all a wonderful knife,the optional saya on the other hand is crap. Its pin fit and has way to much movement so much so the edge hits the inside walls. The knife rattles around in like dice,very disappointed. Don’t waste you money on it get one somewhere else. 0.3
Love the knife,less reactive then some have said. Dead perfect fnf. All the hype is true,itís a laser to be sure. The optional saya is a total waste. Poorly fit with a ton of shake,so much so the edges get dinged. Not worth the money. 0.3
