Without a doubt, one of the most popular and talked about knife lines in the CKTG store is the Konosuke HD range of lasers. It is the knife by which most other lasers have been judged. It boasts the usual exemplary fit and finish common to all Konosuke high end knives, but this beauty is more than skin deep. The ultra-thin grind is pretty much unlike any other we know. This knife falls through produce. It is light, yet it is stiff and responsive. It is a knife that is all about subtleties and simplicity.
The edge is sharp out of the box, and in true HD steel fashion, is able to hold that sharpness very well. The compact and slim petty is perfectly suited to most cutting tasks involving smaller items as well as a slicer of smaller cuts of protein like pork tenderloins. It is perfectly balanced for in hand cutting or intricate garnish work too.
The great looking and feeling handle is constructed from black micarta in a sleek western hidden tang design. The handle scales mate up to the finely finished stainless bolster and are attached to the tang with a three pin arrangement.
