    The weight is 113 grams. The blade gives a solid, stiff impression, but scaled down to this size it feels more "normal" than the gyuto (I have the 240 Toyama Gyuto). All my other pettys to compare with are smaller and lighter than this. I would say the Toyama is more blade heavy than my other pettys, with the balance point approx 15 mm in front of the heel. Maybe this is because of the rather small handle. The handle I got was d-shaped, not octagonal, and rather small in circumference (21 mm tall and 16 mm wide at the ferrule), giving it a bit of a suji feel. But I like it. Don't want to have big handles on pettys, because I like to use them on the board and it gives more clearance.

    It's beside my Tanaka gyuto since they look pretty similar with the damascus pattern. The Toyama is more polished though.

    I really like this petty, it feels very "mini-gyuto-ish" in its proportions, 35 mm tall.

    CORRECTION: My Toyama Damascus Petty 180 is 38 mm tall at the heel. (Spec is 35 mm at JNS)

    I am definitely going to be a Toyama collector for the rest of my life. I hope he gains the prestige he deserves. The 210mm Nakiri I own is phenomenal.

    +1. Picked that up recently from JNS as my first Toyama. It won't be my last...

    Just put in an order for a 240 Toyama kasumi, along with a 240 Munetoshi gyuto and the munetoshi butcher. Looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about! Looking for something heavier and couldn't resist

    And +1

    I don't normally keep 2 from the same maker to try more variations, but Toyama is an exception!

    Got my Toyama today...noticed there had been some obvious work done on the tip. It's all scuffed up and not polished like the rest of the blade. I'd post pics but I don't think I can yet. Anyone else get this?

    It's common. Mine is the same. If you are referring to the gyuto, that is.
