Posted By: David RapkinNew to these knives and looking for a 240, I was initially drawn to this blade because of Anryu-san's half century of experience. I love that he founded the Takefu collective and is part of actively training the next generation of blacksmiths. Yet while respect and tradition brought me to this purchase, I'm staying for the performance and aesthetics: man does this thing cut, and look gorgeous doing it. It is stout, yet it's also got some nice flex, and it really thins out. The blade road just shimmers in the light of my kitchen; a really stunning looking knife. The spine and choil could maybe use just a bit of rounding, but especially at this price, I'm very glad I purchased this remarkable piece of history.
