Posted By: AquilaI bought this knife after buying the Anryu 270mm damascus gyuto. These really are fantastic knives with great attention to detail. Visually they are works of art, and functionally, very effective with balance point where you would expect. As with the 270, I haven't taken a stone to it yet, just stropping and enjoying. My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that it doesn't sing like the gyuto does, which is a phenomenon that still amazes me.
This one weighed in at about the advertised weight, and like the gyuto, the blade is very thin and flexible. I think the maker, by keeping the hardness around 61-62, is giving us a very durable blade for it's thickness. I doubt that there are going to be problems with the edge, but like the gyuto, I'm respecting that thinness.
