    My 240mm Ikazuchi gyuto is 135 g. In comparison I just weighed my shigefusa 210mm gyuto and it was 172g.

    I imagine the ho wood handle helps tilt the balance forward which IMHO helps with momentum chopping. So bottom line, more weight than a laser, but a thin grind that performs well, and good steel and price? So if you don't need a weighty knife for chopping, a pretty fantastic knife at the price?

    Its notable taller than the gesshin ginga, which explains the weight and how it is able to be thinner behind the edge.

    I'm confused...on the site I see both @ 48mm?

    How tall are the ones you folks are seeing?

    Not so sure about the stainless part, but looking to add a true laser at some point. Love the new Ikazuchi line but can't quite get past the stainless cladding. Been planning on a mono White 2 from the GG line and so far this is still leading the pack. Don't you have or had a Tadatsuna for comparison?
