Posted By: JasonI have this knife, the Gihei blue#2 240, and the Shiro Kamo white#2 240. Theyíre all fine knives, but this one is the best. The Gihei (mine at least) tends to wedge, and the Shiro Kamo is very thin and sharp, but I like a little more weight in my hand. I donít get the wedging I do with the Gihei, and I find the weight and balance better than the Shiro Kamo. Iíve found the AS easy to sharpen. I donít particularly love the kurouchi finish on knives I spend $200+ on, but the performance is excellent (and aesthetic preferences are idiosyncratic). I use this knife every day (home cook). Would recommend!
