1 people found this review helpfulUtterly fantastic. Several months ago I wished to purchased the Ittu-Ryo gyotu 210mm or 240 but all were out of stock and had been for about a year or more. I waited a couple weeks but eventually chose a Masakage gyotu instead, which is very good but I must say pales in performance in comparison to this Ittu-Ryu. Upon learning these were back in stock I could not justify another gyuto so chose this nakiri - it is insanely good, and as other have pointed out, not just for the price but in general just excellent. This has in less than a week become the most used blade in the kitchen. I am new to this blade style but am warming up to it immediately and have already managed to remove a large portion of finger pad by way of the very thin and sharp pointed heel of this blade and its geometry. Out-of-the-box sharpness for this new batch is far from what others have reported - my received nakiri was and is frighteningly sharp at the onset and I've only stropped it a few times thus far. So thin beind the blade, this thing utterly demolishes any produce ingredient prep task. Thicker at the back (and perfectly finished and rounded) making it very sturdy at the same time. I am tempted to pick up the petty and the 240mm gyotu. These are that good.
