Quite a while ago a friend asked me to recommend him a cheap gyuto. Unfortunately I recommended one that I hadn't used myself. I also bought one for myself just to try it out. WORST piece of **** I've ever seen. And now I've felt bad for about a year or so because I dumped this turd on my friend. Some of you will probably recognize the knife and know what I'm talking about.
I finally took the time to thin it(a lot) and rehandle it so I can switch out our knives. Also fixed a broken tip. Maybe I'll fix the other one as well but I'd rather just throw it out in the bin.
Oh, the wood is Redwood Burl and I got it from Mark at BurlSource. My friend has big hands and use a hammer grip so I kept the handle big but rounded.
