    Looking for an excuse for another knife.
    I have an 8 inch Lion Sabatier slicer but find it a little short.
    I'm thinking of a 300mm sugihiki.
    Must admit I quite like the Masakage Yuki and I don't have a white steel knife.
    However, CKTG currently have a sale on the Kajihara Damascus at $209.95 - seems a good deal for blue steel.
    Does anyone have any experience with either of these ?
    I noticed that BDL likes the Konosuke HD2, going by the review on CKTG, and that's got me thinking about that one.
    I suspect the answer is buy the one you want to, I'm mainly fishing for any bad experiences - or is the HD2 a much better knife ?
    I'm in no great rush to buy (I'm actually under direct orders not to buy another knife having bout 7 jap knives over the last 9 months :)
    I would prefer to buy from Japan purely due to postage to Australia, but I can't find anything I like from the usual outlets there (Mainly JCK I guess). I have bought from CKTG previously.
    Amy feedback would be appreciated.
    Cheers
    Kev

    :)

    It is indeed.

    I'm probably leaning towards the Konosuke at the moment.

    There's a place here in Sydney which has 270mm HD2s or maybe get a 300mm HD or HD2 from CKTG, unless the Sydney place can order in a 300mm.
