Since I started I have been making my gyutos a bit over size, like 245 listed as a "240". I know that this is the popular size for gyutos, but I was wondering how you guys fell about the tweeners? Like a 255 which is roughly equivalent to 10 inches, or for that matter a 225, which is a bit shy of 9 inches. I will keep making my 245's especially now that I have made some significant improvements.
I have been thinking about it for awhile, but what prompted me to ask was Marko's pre-buy of a 260mm gyuto(thanks Marko).
So would you guys be more tempted by a 255-260mm than a 245? Or for some of you looking for line knives be tempted by a 225 vs a 210 or 245mm?
