    Great review thanks Rick! It looks like you touched on just about everything a knife nut might wonder about.

    Thanks for the review Rick, I know I've been waiting to hear something about this knife for quite some time. Maybe I missed it but did you mention anything about the fit and finish of the handle, spine or choil?

    On my 240mm WA-gyuto the finish on the handle is nice, but the spine and choil was pretty sharp ootb..

    You're welcome.

    The owner of the knife had smoothed the spine and choil/ricasso area, so I couldn't really comment on it. I'd think that he had to smooth them probably means it needed it.

    The handle is well made and reminds me of Takeda's.

    I personally don't think an unrounded choil is enough reason not to buy a knife. It's a nice touch, but it's such a quick fix, I would consider it almost inconsequential.
    Overall PT, is the knife worth the money?

    The spine and choil were pretty sharp, but as stated that is an easy fix. I rounded the angles on the handle a little bit too.

    The geometry of that knife is so much better than I expected. Thanks for the review and pics.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and info!
    What was the price, what you would see as it's main competition, and your bang-for-buck assessment?

    I have the 150 petty and find it to be a great knife for small work, rarely is the thickness a problem. ONCE the patina start to seep into the knife it does start to look good. Took mine forever to get a reasonable patina started lol
