This is the iconic HD2 gyuto made of semi-stainless steel and a beautiful ebony handle. Also, Konosuke likes to install their handles "Tokyo Style" which means there is a gap between the shoulder of the machi and the handle. See photo 4. It's not a mistake and it gives the knife a nice aesthetic.

      Excellent product and service!, December 27, 2019

    As always a quality product at a fair price. I only purchase through CKTG since I trust them for quality products. The Konosuke knives never disappoint they are razor sharp and fantastic to use. They are useable art!

      HD2, January 15, 2018
    Posted By: Travis(kit) - verified customer

    I really, really like this blade and I am more of a 180-210mm kind of guy. However, for its size, this is a very nimble knife with a great tip for delicate work. However, delicate this knife is not. It can handle a lot on the the board. It offers an easily sharpened steel that reminds you of carbon with the corrosion resistance of stainless. Edge retention is fair to good, better than much of the carbon that I own but not as good as most PM steel. It will get almost as sharp as white but hold an edge longer. It is, of course a laser and acts as one yet offers fair food release, for what it is. A great all around blade.

      konosuke hd2 laser 240mm gyuto, December 25, 2017
    Posted By: tom mcdonald - verified customer

    I am an experienced cook with a certain amount of knife skill pride. i have several excellent-outstanding knives from top Japanese producers. i have always preferred carbon steel and this is my first purchase of a semi-stainless. This product is outstanding in all respects. Fit and finish are impeccable. Out of box sharpness great and edge holding is remarkable. I have not yet needed to resharpen on my stones, so I cannot comment on its ease of resharpening.It lives up to its reputation as a laser, falling though vegetables, slicing like a yang through meat and fish.'very happy so far.

      3 years and running, December 5, 2017
    Posted By: Wes Graf - verified customer

    Couldn't be happier, had this knife since 2014 (less fancy handle, much cheaper 3 years ago) but out of the box I could drop a Roma tomatoes from only two inches into the blade, and cut itself in two. 3 years later, you almost have to intentionally ignore it for it to get dull. I am no sharpening expert, but I can get this knife on my stones to the point where the shaves arm hair pretty easily. no knife I'd rather use in a kitchen for everything.

      How different from the Swedish SS version?, September 6, 2017
    Posted By: Alan Huth - verified customer

    I like the Swedish SS version. 5 stars. Mark said they are comparable. Is that still the consensus?

      The perfect knife for the adrenaline speed junkie., August 10, 2017
    Posted By: Jin - verified customer

    Favorite knife to use in the kitchen. I was pretty nervous to use this knife during service, due to how ridiculously sharp it is. Great edge retention and the handle is gorgeous. Worth the extra 60 bucks.

    I can't say anything that has not already been described about this knife. The feel of one of these lasers truly has to experienced on the cutting board. Effortless slicing is an understatement. Fit and finish is outstanding, as is the edge taking and retention. Add to the performance a classy handle, and you really have a beautiful racehorse. As usual, Mark and Sue continue to excel in this unique niche. Thanks!

      Spectacular, January 2, 2017

    Stellar knife. Even with the slightly heavier but beautiful custom handle it is so nimble it will take me some time to get used to. The wonderful world of lasers.. Unfortunately the saya it came with scratches the blade.

      My new favorite knife, November 18, 2016
    Posted By: DM - verified customer

    There isn't really too much that I can say about the HD2 that hasn't already been said before, but this is my new favorite knife. As a home cook, I end up feeling sad that I don't have more prep work to do cause of how much I enjoy using this knife
