    Very nice Jon. Definitely an improvement on the profile. Are they san mai or are my eyes fooling me? What type of steel is used for the sides?

    san mai... with softer cladding... iron cladding on the carbon and stainless on the ginsanko

    So, if the original Hide gyuto's were such great cutters, is the new thinner batch even better?

    more different than better... the original ones worked really great though, but based on what out customer base is looking for, we made some changes.

    The only saving factor for me not pulling the trigger on a Ginsanko is there is no 270's. Do love the look of the new grind.

    also, a lot of people have asked about why the prices are the way they are... the answer is the cost of the blacksmith... we used 3 different blacksmiths... as such, each person has a different price. This, together with the varying cost of steel, cost of labor involved in working each steel, etc.
