WHOO AHHAAA (http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/new-items-list/kochi-210mm-kurouchi-wa-gyuto.html)

Yup thanks to a friend and me getting a job I bought this puppy and chomping at the bit awaiting it's arrival. Naturally my first day of work, orientation..., is on the first day I expect to see it pop up ARRGGHH!! Hope that goes well, we shall see what the post man does...

Ya it's a touch longer than my first plans for this purchase where going to be, but after playing around with sizes and all I think it's going to work out just fine.

I'm planning a side by side play off with my Watanabe Kaibou, only because they are roughly the same dementions short of one being 2/3s thinner lol.

Salsa in the makings :) After it runs through a few onions to get the patina started lol.

Cool for you. Hope you enjoy your new job. I was eying that knife last night thinking, "I bet it's a nice little cutter knowing Jon".

You betcha :) Told my daughter she had an opportunity to work on a "Get out of jail free" points when my package arrives :P

As true with most knives I get I'll be making a big batch of salsa, where you cut up everything into tiny pieces :p Seeing how the OotB edge holds up as well as how it feels in hand for that amount of time. So much anticipation lol
