Made a trip down there today to pick up a stone fixer. Man, what a beautiful store. I looked at a lot of knives and was very taken by several of them. I know that this one: http://korin.com/Indented-Blade-Sole-Knife?sc=20&category=51928 is in my future. Best fliet knife I have ever seen. I was also very tempted by a Honesuki and a Hankotsu. I played with several of the gyutos. I liked the look of the Masanobu very much but the Misono UX10 felt so much better in my hand, there was no comparison. I have no need for such a knife; my Shun is fine and I am able to get a very good edge on it these days. But this was fun. I will probably get a very nice gyuto some day, just not today or any day soon. I asked about the traditional one-sided Japanese knives. They asked how I cooked and replied "You don't need one and wouldn't know how to use it anyway." I appreciate their candor and they are probably right.
