It did not disappoint and I can't recommend it enough for someone looking for a large, reasonably priced Western handled gyuto.The FKM meets all the basic requirements for a good gyuto. It takes an edge easily, it holds an edge pretty well, and it's thin enough to move fluently through product. It also stands up to abuse remarkably well. I use it pretty roughly, including when mincing herbs, and lend it out to interns without concern. Honing this knife is even moderately effective.The FKM also features a surprisingly consistent distal taper that gives it a great tip. Considering the grind I'm not sure how Fujiwara makes a profit on these knives.Unlike the other knives in this line the 270mm gyuto's handle is a bit larger than average. People with small hands might prefer the Tojiro DP 270mm gyuto, though with my average sized hands it's not at all an issue.
