Konosuke has made some changes to this line of knives which is why they're now called the GS+. The main improvement is the heat treat was raised to 61-62 Rockwell. They also updated the handle to a 1-piece handle. You'll notice a small gap between the handle and the machi which is mostly aesthetic and it's often called "Tokyo Style" since many knives made in Tokyo have this feature. Japanese swords often have this gap to accommodate the hilt (called a Tsuba) and this alludes to that tradition.

The all new Konosuke GS+ line is new and improved to give a higher level of performance to an already great knife. The GS+ line has an HRC of 61-62, smoother grinds, better fit and finish, and new Khii chestnut octagon handles. Enjoy!

    5  Konosuke 240mm GS+, September 19, 2018
    Posted By: HPHH

    Wow, this is my longest non-suji, non-yanagi knife but it's also one of the lightest among them. It's even lighter overall than my 165mm Yoshihiro nakiri! The handle is simple but neat. I like the gap. Be aware that the end of the handle is actually rounded in a convex manner, not flat. The handle is the same diameter throughout. I thought it would be awkward to hold since I am used to tapered handles that most Jknives possess, but it's no issue.

    The way it's balanced, however, with the balance point in front of the pinch grip, means it feels nonetheless that the blade is tipping forward, still allowing the blade weight to do some work for you while minimizing fatigue. It cuts in a very pleasing way, definitely a thin laser style knife. OOB edge is alright. Not the best, but a few minutes over my 4000 King and 6000 Arashiyama brought out supreme sharpness. Thanks, CKTG!

    4  Konosuke GS+ 240mm Gyuto, October 23, 2016

    Very sharp looking knife. (Pun intended) it's very light, which makes it a great workhorse. Nice and thin behind the edge, and it glides through prep swimmingly. OOB sharpness was above average. My only qualm was the knife seemed a little loose at the handle. It seems as if it was poorly epoxied to it. Maybe this is normal? Maybe it's just a small oversight once in a while. All in all, great buy and a quality knife.

    4  Great knife. Bit pricey and very light., July 17, 2016
    Posted By: Ryan - verified customer

    The best thing about this knife is the distal taper. I've never seen a knife with such a nice continuous taper from handle to tip. The knife is very very very light. I almost feel like it is too light. But this is a laser so that makes sense. The knife itself is gorgeous. I love the simple handle. My biggest complaint would be that it didn't come very sharp. You will probably have to take it to the stones for a screaming edge. All in all, I love the knife. If it were maybe 50 dollars cheaper I would call it an amazing buy. But Konosukes are so sought after you have to pay a premium I guess. In the end, no regrets.

    5  So far... great, July 10, 2016
    Posted By: Ramon - verified customer

    I have not used any other konosukes. At this price range you have alot of options. But at this time i cannot give this knife less than five stars. F&F were great,except the choil could use a little more finishing. If I could deduct a partial star I would. It's light, nimble definetly laser as advertised, but still slightly blade heavyweight due perhaps due to the light handle, which I like. I like the feel and look of the knife. It's simple and elegant. It so far has reacted like a stainless knife. I haven't had any discoloration even on onions and garlic. It has a nice subtle rocking profile that you could still chop with. I cannot comment on edge retention, food release and elaborate on a variety of ingredients due to newness of knife
