About a month ago I ordered a Yoshikane 240 gyuto from Hide at http://hides-export.blogspot.com/. Today I got this wonderful email, and thought I'd post pics :D

Very nice! Is that the SKD12 core?

Congratulations, I remember how awesome it was to get notice from Dr. Naka that my Shige was ready. Dr. Naka's communication is #1!

P.S. Did you customize the order in any way? The reason I ask is because your knife does not look as tall as my Yoshikane, it looks more "high-speed."

Exactly, I'm really interested in seeing how it performs.

No customization, I thought the same thing. Lucky for me I'm a big fan of narrow gyutos :D Most likely though it is just pictures distorting things like they always do.

Judging from the angle of the photo, I bet the knife is taller than it looks here. However, I still bet it's fairly narrow for a gyuto. I personally like this. It looks to have a very Mizuno-like torpedo profile, and I LOVE my Mizuno.

Andrew, is that knife iron cladded?

Hide could answer this better than me, but my understanding is that the core is SKD 12 which is semi stainless. The knife is then clad in a soft stainless steel. You get some really cool looking patina on the hagane: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php?1488-SKD12-Patina

Wow! Congrats andrew. I love the contrast that gets created with cladding like this.
Can't wait to see pictures once you get it.
