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.
