Yesterday a new Shigefusa bacame a member of my knife family.
I ordered a custom thinner 270mm suji, from Hide's Export.
For more detailed info on the dimensions lookie here (http://hides-export.blogspot.com/2011/05/knives-ready-to-ship.html)

the knife is fantastic, thin great geometry as always with Shigefusa, perfect F&F, easy to sharpen.

Niiiice. My gyuto was just finished, but I'm away on a trip, so I won't have it for around 2 more weeks I think.

Contact Hide san (DrNaka here) at hides-export.blogspot.com. My gyuto was less than three months (about 2-2.5 I think).

Oh...my...god...

That is so badass. Lock your doors and windows at night, cause I might not be able to fight the urge.
