Anyone have them or know about them? Looking at http://japanesechefsknife.com/KAGAYAKIVG-10.html and the prices seem reasonable. Looking to purchase my first really good kitchen knives and think I want to go with a Japanese style. I currently use a couple Calphalon knives but get tired of having to sharpen them all the time so I figured I would look at Japanese knives since they are made of harder steel. Any other recommendations for similar priced brands?
Also is the extra sharpness "ES" something I should look into getting? I fish alot and I regularly sharpen my fillet knives along with my kitchen knives on a 3 sided Smith stone. I have no experience sharpening Japanese style knives.
