I am looking to gather options on the 2022 passaround

Post by Bensbites »

I have a bar of Magnacut steel, and think it’s time to start planning the 2022 passaround. One bar is 2 in tall the other is 2.2 inches tall, both are 0.122 thick. I am thinking about gyuto vs ktip.

Thoughts?

My thoughts are this is very kind and generous of you. I have no input on what should be made.

But I do appreciate your thoughtfulness in doing this.

This is somewhat self serving. I get great feedback and public reviews from this group. Win- win.

Let me start by saying that I will be first in line to try this steel!

My personal preference is a standard gyuto, I just find them more nimble and versatile. That being said, standard profiles are the more popular profile overall if it matters.

What about a KS Togatta style gyuto?

I don’t love the KS profile. I know it’s personal preference. If I had a ton of messages saying people want to see it, I would consider it.
