    Kurouchi Kato Choil Shot

    Hi guys,

    I just bought a double beveled white #1 kurouchi 240mm gyuto by Kato san, I've seen pictures of each side, but I don't know how thick the knife is and how it is shaped.

    Does anyone have a similar knife that can comment on this? Or maybe you know of some pictures online?

    Thanks a lot

    Are we talking Kiyoshi Kato here? If so, this is my 180mm kurouchi nakiri. It is a JNS Workhorse model, but I don't know how much the grind factors into that with kurouchi. It is quite a lot thicker than both my Kato gyutos.

    Don't drink out of ornamental ponds in Tiergarten. You will get sick.
