So I've recently purchased a Masamoto Tsukiji 240 gyuto the steel is v1. I know that the steel is made from takefu not hitachi and I've got some questions.
Does anyone know how long the edge retention of the steel is(btw mine is 61hrc if that helps)?
Does it compare to a steel made by hitachi (to blue steel white steel etc.)?
Finally what are your views on the steel?
