Thank you very much for the reviews. I am looking forward to the Mac review
(especially if you choose to review the ultimate series). I currently have the
Misono 10.5" Moly series knife. It is wonderful. Any comments on the diffences
between these two series. I feel the need to add a 9" knife to my collection
and will probably choose between the Misono or Mac.

Btw... The Misono Ux10, Does it have its own type of Kullens? I thought I heard
something about perpendicular lines runing up and down the blade.

That Gelastin sure is a beutiful knife

I hear a Masamoto rep might be visiting Mutual Trading in the fall as well.
That might be worth waithing for. I have heard only good things about their
knives as well.

No the Misono UX10 has no kullens. I'm currently working with the new
Masamoto VG-10 gyuto in 240mm. It is really a very, very good knife. So
far I'm giving it all 5's. It will either tie or beat out the Misono
depending on blade hardness which takes a while to determine since I don't
have equipment for measuring it. I have to work until the blade dulls and
then sharpen it and that takes a while with the Japanese gyutos which hold
an edge very well.

The Glestain is an interesting looking knife. The blade is bit softer than
the blades on other similarly priced knives - Misono, Masamoto, and even
some cheaper knives - Kiyotsuna Josaku. Also it is slightly handle heavy
and I really don't like handle heaviness in a chef knife. It isn't severe
enough to cause me distress but it is noticeable and a little distracting to
me. Fit and finish are awesome, though.

I'm awaiting some Macs. I don't know which series. I have no experience
with them yet. Sorry.

Thank you for your hard work. I have bought most of my knives with out the
benifit of a lot of reviews and can't say I regret one purchase. But it sure
way harder.

I have a MAC stainless sushi knife and think the world of it, but have never
tried their chef knives.

About the Gelastin: I was also intrigued because it is a bit heavier than the
Misono. I think it would be nice to have a bit more heft on the blade. I always
worry about the blade holding up to chicken bones and such. Although I have had
my Misono almost a year and it has held up well except for a bit of color on
the handle fading.

How does the Masamoto weigh in?
