    I think I have seen that one back on the old forum. Now I wonder what the purpose of that knife was.

    I think the purpose of a single bevel gyuto serves the same purpose as a rolex watch that doesn't work. It's the fact that you were able to obtain and own one even though it doesn't serve it's original purpose very well.

    I don't know of a Rolex watch with a flawed design. A broken Rolex can fixed, but a single beveled gyuto can't, unless you regrind it into a much smaller double-beveled knife, but the work you have to put into it, makes it not worth it.

    It's simply a flawed design by whoever doesn't understand the purpose of a chefs knife in Western cuisine. And that is the reason you don't see single-beveled gyutos out there, well, almost.

    Asymmetric bevel is often seen on a knife that is flat ground somewhat thick edge (I would say .020-.025") thick and then a wide bevel cut on one side and deburred on the other. The thicker the edge, the wider the bevel has to be to cut, so some of folks can confuse it for a single bevel, but it is not.

    Hahahaha, you win this round Marko. I can't argue with that.

    I just hope people got the general point I was trying to make.

    I was clicking around some Japanese sites, and came across this page:

    http://www.utihamono.com/houcho/gyutoum-k.html

    和式牛刀 片刃 Which I believe is Single bevel Wa-gyuto , and I said huh?

    Then I started googling and this thread popped up. Anyone seen/used these before?

    In case anyone is actually looking for one. JCK has blue #2 single bevel wa petty/santoku/gyutos. It is their FRKZ house series.

    FBS-1 through 5

    At least they advertise it as single bevel.

    Those Tesshu blades are really cool. The edge will be more fragile than a DB Gyuto. With these a micro bevel is a good idea to add a little strength to the edge. As with any SB they can get razor sharp on a polishing stone. You are deff. limited with the kind of foods you cut with it. Nothing too hard.
