    I was asked yesterday why the gyuto profile I posted didn't look identical to Masamoto gyuto's.

    I never intended to copy Masamoto 1:1, though I took a Masamoto gyuto profile as a base for profiles I came up with. For one, I like a little more curve in mid section, a shorter flat area at the heel, and a little more curve at the tip. This profile will allow for a gentle rocking, while still well suited for pull/push cutting and tip work. I was told, this profile has 3 sweet spots, tip, heel and mid section.

    So there will be two profiles to choose from, both derived from a Masamoto profile, but neither is a 1:1 copy. The profile at the top is narrower and has a less curve on the edge.

    If you guys have any special requests like flatter profile, flatter area at the tip, longer flat area at the heel, and whatnot, I would need to know that in advance.

    Thanks,

    The top knife is too thick on the edge. Might want to sharpen that at a 10 degree angle instead of 90...heheh, j/k I really like the profile.

    That picture confirms that I am a lousy sharpener.

    Thanks. I have profiled a few, so time to start heat treating.
