    Lol! Really??? The konos ive owned in the past usually had an edge length of 260-262mm, i expect them to run short but 20mm short would piss me off.
    BTW it wouldnt be hard to knock a few mm off a kono either, the tips are usually paper thin.

    So if I jumped on buying this Konosuke 270, actually measured it, abused it a little, and had the tip fixed couple of times. I could possibly get the Konosuke 240 I am looking for?

    The 240 I had ran closer to 230.. The kid I ended up selling it to took a few chunks out of it within a few weeks. I'm not super high maintenance with my knives but he must have been incredibly careless with it. I enjoyed using it when I had it so I'm gonna snag this one to add to my superfluous collection of 270 gyutos

    It's a Fujiyama, btw. Also, a coworker just picked up a 240 Kono ginsan, and it's 225 on the edge...a killer knife none the less.
