I would have gone kataeji for that particular tuna. That knife has got me noticing oval handles, quite comfy and cozy. Thanks for the pictures.

The sashimi dish looks great! Are the round balls melon? What did you do with the rest of the tuna?

Not everyone has the single bevel arsenal that you do, with multiple options in each size and shape and kasumi and kitaeji variants.

I believe those are the pickled daikon.

I wish we could get them head on here. Standard practice is that the head gets tossed back immediately when the fish is bled. I'm positive there is good meat in there.
