- verified customerThe fit and finish on this knife is what you expect for a knife at this price. It is also shorter than all of my 240 gyutos, so the one I was sent may be shorter than I eexpected. The cladding is thin and is a straight line across the blade road, rather than forming to the shape of the knife. The handle also has no real feel to it. It is a piece built to serve it's function and not much else. This does not help with aesthetics, but this knife can take a screaming sharp edge, and at the end of the day, function is what matters most. I bought this knife as a beater for fabricating fish when a deba is too tall and for slicing fish to order for service. It will take a great edge and hold it, even after heavy prep days. This knife is also more reactive than any other blade I've owned, so watching how it patinas has been fun.
