Santoku VS Small Gyuto

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I want to add a new knife to my roll.

Right now I just have my 9 1/2 Carbon Gyuto, A Petty(5 inch I think? I never use the thing), and a paring knife. I want to add a smaller knife since I figured it might be more spacially friendly on my small line, but I'm not sure if I should try something different or stick with what most pros seem to consider "functional"

I work primarily with asian food so I figured the shape of a santoku would probably useful for what I do at some point, but most sites seem to just insist on the chefs over and over again. Does the shape seem to help with specific tasks at all? What are your guys experiences with both?

if it matters, I'll be going with a 7 Inch Hiromoto if I go with the Gyuto, or a 7 Inch Carbon Misono if I go with the Santoku.

I love the Misono Swedish a lot but am far from impressed by its edge retention. In a pro setting with poly boards have the Hiromoto AS and put a conservative edge on it.

Hey what's up all ? I have a question about knives. I just purchased a 240 mm hattori hd and a 180 mm misono ux10 with sayas both for $230... A) did I get a good deal and b) what are your thoughts on these knives?

To the OP: if you live in the USA consider the Hiromoto AS 190mm santoku with CKTG.

If you decide to go with theĀ 7 Inch Hiromoto Gyuto, you might want to act fast since the Owner/Blacksmith retired and the stock is running out fast.
