    First J knife, Gesshin Ginga gyuto

    Jon @ JKI is fantastic. Thank you for all your help in getting me my first real Japanese knife. Gesshin Ginga 210mm wa-gyuto in white steel #2. I'm already thinking about which petty to go with. Removed the lacquer and sliced a couple old onions just for fun and I already have the very slight beginnings of a patina.

    Nice! I got the very same knife a few weeks ago and am very pleased with it. if you're thinking about a petty, I would go for 120mm since the Wa-Ginga is really a 200mm blade.

    Great info, thanks. I was thinking the same about a petty. I'm not that tall, so the shorter knives are nice. What petty(s) do you have/like?

    They've been beyond great. I feel so safe buying from them, without any hesitation.
