- verified customerI was privileged enough to use one of these on load - private passaround.I had the knife for about a month, and fell in love with it!I own smaller knives; 120 petty through 210 gyuto.. so the size was a concern, at first.When I first picked the knife up I was impressed at it's weight. It is far FAR lighter than I expected from a knife this size.The damascus cladding was pretty, but not breathtaking like some I've seen,The AS core steel took a rather acute angle, and edge retention was what you'd expect from an AS blade. The fit and finish was good - as the handle is an Isaiha Schroeder semi-custom. It fits the knife well, and feels good in hand.Performance was exceptional, IMO.For the length it is very nimble and agile. I really liked the knifes flat profile!Having said that I typically prefer the smaller/shorter blades... If I do buy anything in the 240+ sized gyuto this remains my #1 choice at this time. Very impressed!
