    JKI says 55mm...ofcourse there is bound to be a difference of a mm or 2 within each gyuto.

    the Kochi is substantially thinner for much of the blade above the edge, but the Kochi is also thicker at the spine and a good bit heavier, overall. The Takedas are less chip prone than a new Kochi, in my experience, as the grind is more robust, but the Kochi is a better cutter.

    +1 on this. The kochi is a hell of a knife.

    I'm totally agree expect I never have chip prone issue with my v2 kochi gyuto! what is your kochi's steel(blue#2 or v2??)
