    Wouldn't having a 240mm santoku make it uber blade heavy considering how tall the blade remains close to the tip? Just seems like a lot of steel in my mind, and the reason they stay relatively short.

    not necessarily. also, theres functional reasons for wanting alot of steel above the tip. the reason santokus usually are only 160-190mm long is because theyre used by home cooks mostly.

    Nope.

    Plenty of tall gyutos out there. Takeda for instance.
