    Kikuichi gyuto?

    I have been offered a Kikuichi 240 mm gyuoto (Kikuichi Gold Elite Damascus). It looks really nice and is quite thin and is made of VG-10. However, I know nothing else about this knife.

    Is there anyone who can tell me more, particularly about the geometry and profile? As always, is it thin behind the edge?

    Thanks!

    I have the 210 gold elite. I also another VG 10 knife . Some don't love VG 10. It sure work on my 2. Both take great edges and are easy to sharpen. The gold elite is nicely balanced, fairly thin behind the edge an fairly light. If your getting a deal, I think it a good value. The handle may be a little small for some. Profile reminds me of a Sab.

    As far as I can recall, it's been VG10. It may have been VG1 at one point, but when I picked up a honesuki back in the early 2000's, it was pretty clear that it was VG10.

    The one I had was a clad, vg10 core and SUS410 outside.
    Steel was good but the F&F was bad.
