Posted By: AdamDisclosure, I bought this thinking of using it as sort of an XL petty. That being said, I've had the knife for a few days now and I put it through some prep paces. It definitely excels in all-around slicing, I've run through some onions and peppers with it but it's fairly long and not really suitable for veg work. The area where I've seen the best performance, and what I ultimately bought it for, is fabricating meat. I've blazed right through a couple cases of tenderloins, cutting filets, breaking down strip loins into steak, sliced through a few cases of random chicken breasts and it's been phenomenal. I do like the grippy/tacky feeling to the handle, but I cant say I love the dimensions or shape of it. OOTB sharpness was standard Tojiro, nothing amazing, nothing terrible, took a great edge on our house stones. Overall it's a decent knife, and for $40 on clearance? Great. Seriously thinking about picking up the 240/270 gyutos as well just for beater knives.
