well look at what came in the mail today.
240 Shigefusa next to my 270 Mizuno. i'd say that Shigefusa gives you a lot of steel for your money. :) it's definitely a thicker and heavier knife than the Mizuno, but talk about thin behind the edge! it'll take some getting used to, but it's very comfortable. i've cut all of an apple so far, but i think i'll like getting to know this thing. :) thanks, Mario!
