Hello Everyone I am looking to get my first yanagiba, I am debating over the Konosuke Fujiyama 270mm White #2 yanagiba or the Gesshin hide 270mm Blue #1 yanagiba. Thank you for your help Ps: I know how to sharpen, I have 1200 bester, 5k rika, 2k shapton pro. I am also looking to pick up either a 5k shapton pro or a 5k-6k gesshin splash and go. I currently have: Masamoto 240mm KS gyuto Sakai Yusuke 240mm gyuto special thin Ikkashi Tadasuna 270mm inox gyuto Komaguro 240 blue #2 gyuto Konosuke HD 150mm petty Thank you for your help, I am currently hinting towards the gesshin only because i heard so many good things about it. I have lightly used a Konosuke 300mm white #2 fujiyama yanagiba, though it was a bit heavy at the time.
