damn thats tempting... probably would of gotten the 210mm kurouchi sujihiki but its too cheap to qualify for free shipping and with $33 shipping otherwise, not worth it.

I've always fancied the western kasumi (240), but I think that's a heavy premium for the handle, and there's a poor review of how the handle feels in a pinch grip

Yeah the handle and the price is all that's holding me back from the cleavers at $240. 

The kasumi stainless or stainless clad carbons are all fantastic deals with the 30% off.  I might grab another stainless 210 at $112 for a gift

Those cleavers are pretty eye catching

I like the way the kasumi's thin and taper. I would imagine they feel nice in use

Why clad a stainless knife though?

I would guess the cladding material is cheaper than the core steel.  The stainless has a different profile than the stainless clad v2.  It's much flatter

The way it started coming across to me was to spoof up a knife that was already going to be clad. Sukenari Ginsan and Yoshihiro Ginsan wa-gyuto are a clads knife with no 'Damascus', KU, or Nashiji finish. Tojiro DP is a non-patterned clad VG10 knife. I'm thinking there are cost/failure rates of manufacturer considerations (possibly these high-end core steels are on the brittle side?)

Yeah, there are other considerations than looks and reactivity.  The cladding is a softer more malleable stainless than the harder core steel.    I have a laser that is stainless clad in stainless.  It is surprisingly non flex-y for how thin it is.  I suspect the cladding had a part in that too.

Anyway I just wanted you guys to know that these price levels are unusual. The biggest sale I have seen from JNS is the 20% december sale.  If you were in the market for any of these already, 30% would probably push you over the edge

Millions, do US buyers pay VAT?

Also, is your Itinomonn the clad V2 or the StainLess semi SS Maksim has?

US buyers don't pay VAT.  When you put in your billing/shipping address you should see the price drop.  I believe minimum for free shipping is around $140 USD.

I have the Kasumi 240 V2 stainless clad  and a stainless kasumi 210, and two wa butchers.  All are very good cutters that you should 100% put on a microbevel because they are thin behind the edge.

I just ordered a 240mm gyuto - $153 for an Itinomonn is a no brainer.  Thanks for the heads up @MillionsKnives   /img/vbsmilies/smilies/drinkbeer.gif

Got the 270 burnt chestnut handled Kasumi V2 Stainless for $163 plus one of the Aiiwatani Koppa Kiitas. My budget says no but my heart says yes. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/peace.gif

Thanks so much for sharing about the sale!

IMO a hoarder buys things they don't need only because they are on sale.  I don't need another gyuto at all.
