d_rap: I ordered the Anyru Gyuto within 2 minutes of receiving the notification. My search (at least this one) is over :) Beyond pumped I am. I don't know how long it took for the twelve to be snatched up but they are gone.

Lucky devils you. But I tell myself I really don't need one.

I've used several Anryu gyutos, but have never owned one until today. They are very very good cutters for the price, and I figured if the old guy (i'm an old guy too) is turning over the business, it's time to pull the lever and get one. Kick myself at times for not buying more Hiromoto stuff while he was around - my SO has decided she owns them though.

A great knife for the price, you should be very impressed. This is one of the inflection points where personal preferences start to form. ;)

Carbon is great. But sometimes I just prefer the lower maintenance of a semi-stainless like ginsan. It's so much easier for casual day to day use.

As a home cook, with a good board and being careful, ginsan serves me so well that I reach for the carbons less and less.
