First, the cladding takes a gorgeous patina and has just the right flex to feel *right* (mine is a 240 with a wood handle, YMMV with this blade and handle setup).And the steel...OMG. I think I like Blue2 better than Super - it takes a finer edge on my 1k-4k-8k-16k glass stone set and, after a full day of using it for admittedly light, but delicate, work like shaving hamachi and brunoising persimmons, literally two minutes with the 8/16 stones brings it back. Plus Mr. Akitado stamps the blade! The only downside I've found is that it slowly loses the hair-popping edge over a couple of days on account of the carbon steel oxidizing, but if you polish it up every shift...best knife ever!
