Really thinking of trying one out, and just wanted to know if anyone here has any feedback from usage? I'm curious to know if they run a bit short like their Blue#2 gyutos?

I've always used Masamoto White steel yanagis but recently got a Mizuno gyuto and I'm loving it. Just got really interested in Blue steel now, and especially their Blue #1 option.

I'd try and get in touch with Salty, he's used several Mizuno Blue yanagis.

I have a Mizuno Blue#1 300mm yanagi. Great knife, steel has a very hard feel to it and takes a great edge. Like using a big razor. Did not seem short to me.

How was the original bevel? Flat, or very close to? What was the fit and finish like? Any pictures?
