1 people found this review helpfulI've had this gyuto for about a year now, and I really like it. It is the biggest knife I own, and it looked huge when I first took it out of the box, but it was comfortable and easy to control from the get go. It performs superbly whether I am slicing a cabbage or mincing a shallot. Edge retention is decent. I can get the White #1 screaming sharp, but it looses the insane sharpness fairly quickly. But then it settles in to this nice, toothy, very functional level of sharpness and holds it well (this is with use on an end grain wood board). I like the rustic look of the knife, overall fit and finish were good - I had to smooth out the choil and spine a little with some sandpaper. I bought mine before they upgraded the handle, so I won't comment on that. Overall, I think this knife is a great value, and would be a good purchase for someone looking to buy their first 240 gyuto, but who doesn't want to have to upgrade any time soon, either.
