Anybody own one? Any thoughts? The profile looks a little broader than many sujihiki. And Jon only has the 210 available so that's a little different anyways.

Thoughts on the knife from anyone who has one?

I own a 240mm that I got from Jon. I love it. I use it for a wide variety of tasks. I owned a tadatsuna suji before this. They are two completely different knives in every way and in almost every way I prefer the Heiji. I even broke a 20lb Buri with this the other day.

I handled one at Jon's shop a few months back. I wanted to buy Matt's on the spot. It's still on my list of wants. The problem is I also want a Heiji honesuki and it would feel wrong to have a "set" of Heijis... It is a lovely steel to sharpen. I get excited just thinking about it... Don't judge me, lol.

Yea I have been thinking about getting a Heiji gyuto just because I love my Suji so much. A las I am still waiting on 5 knives on 5 knives I have had on order for a bit of time now. I really love the semi-stainless steel and the knife just has this feel to it.
