    here's that older thread. There's mention of 63hrc although I remember another one that guessed 60-61.

    Well, I pulled the trigger on it during the thread and it showed up today. For those who are curious, here some stats on it before it gets used:
    - it weighs in at 192g
    - spine above heel is 2.11mm
    - height is 45.6mm
    - blade length is 238mm

    pics:


    (for reference) vs 240 takeda


    vs 10" nogent sab chef's


    choil


    not a lot of distal taper


    did you guys know it was made in Japan?


    - Although the Takeda is particularly high, I would consider this knife short.
    - f&f is so-so. It's definitely getting a new handle.
    - the choil shot doesn't show how obviously "right-biased" this knife is. Compare how tall the bevel is on the first photo vs the last. No matter, it'll get re-set first thing tomorrow.

    I'm hoping to get you some more impressions once I put it through some paces. This knife will most likely benefit from some tweaking. I think it'll be a good little project knife

    Thanks Andre It does look small for a 240mm.I've had Masamoto's on the smaller side.After some thinning behind the edge they were good cutters.

    Takeda looks like a monster, in a good way, in comparison
