What really stands out is the grinds and performance. I have several gyutos, and this one goes through food like a completely different beast - it literally falls through things. My other knives are kept very sharp and perform very well, but the first time I used this knife I thought "Ohhhh, now I understand what all the fuss is about!". I read about how much grinds and profile make a difference but until I used this knife it didn't really resonate. Maybe it's like thinking you know what good cars are all about and then getting a chance to drive a Ferrari (I wouldn't know but the analogy makes sense to me).
Do yourself a favor - get this knife. It completely changed how I think about performance standard in the kitchen. Steve says much the same thing in his review video and he is not wrong. I love using this knife.
