the tip on the Mizuno is pretty thick (no idea how thin it was, new), but it cuts pretty nicely despite that.
The knife is with good weight, it is somewhere between laser and a heavy gyuto (such as Kato). Spine measured ~ 3.5 mm compared to 4mm for Kato.
I used the knife on a lot of veggies, and I can say it definitely needs some thinning.
The grind is flat from spine to ~1/2 down then it convexes, I did not have a lot of issues with sticktion.
The steel was easy to sharpen and takes very nice edge, I can't comment on edge retention as I am not a pro so the knife did not go trough a lot of use.
PS : Salty your Inbox is full. PM me who gets the knife next.
Thanks for the opportunity to try the Mizuno.
Batter up. PM incoming Chinacats.
Honyaki has landed! Will get to try it out this evening, can't wait!
Next up is Chuck; I need your info and it will go out promptly.
Sadly, life got crazy. Just got transferred to a new city. Included moving, my apartment is a mess (see butt load of boxes) haha. I am going to sadly have to pass at the moment.
