    Cheaper handle, no bolster, cheaper steel, different Damascus, overall lesser finish I. E. No rounding etc..

    do you still enjoy using it and obviously its not on par with the 240 ironwood but how does it perform compared to other higher priced knives

    cheap?! I think $155 just about right price! tanaka damascus gyuto use 16 layers damascus iron clad+core Blue steel #2.....
    16 layers damascus is laminated damascus not Folding Damascus(layered-steel) & iron clad is much cheaper/easy to made than stainless san-mai clad.
    low-grade D handle, sub-par f/f(rough finish choil & no rounding spine)

    The knives perform very nicely, look great and take a bit if TLC to get to the level of a $300 knife. I say it's a great purchase.

    I that model in a 240 and it is a great knife. Takes a real nice edge and holds it a long time. Great bang for the buck IMO.
