Posted By: Ramon WalleI said in a previous review that if I only had 99 dollars I would get the kanehide tk 210. But after thinking about my experience with this knife that I had a while back, I would take this knife at ninety dollars for a home user (looking for a santoku). This knife takes extreme edges and holds them. It says 61-63 mine "felt" like 63, at least 62. It seemed much harder than other knives I had at 61. It has great food release. The handle concerns some, but it has it pros. If your big on nice warm wood handles this may be a deal breaker for you. But I found the handle to be comfortable, and highly functional. it was sealed very nicely and never felt slick. I used it in a pro kitchen and never had the slightest of issues with it. It is artificial looking, but you make like the way it feels in your hand or not. I would guess at 130 the 210 gyuto would be a heck of a bargain. Honestly, I would guess that I would prefer the 210 version of this knife over the kanehide 210 for home use. A lot of people are raving about the kanehides, but I think these knives don't get enough respect.
