    Mizuno Stainless Wa Gyuto

    Yes, stainless can get sharp. Raises a helluva burr. 270mm, 173g.

    More to come.

    Is that the Hontanren series? I wanted to try one of those. Do you like it?

    There's a pure Sweden stainless at the bottom right before the cleavers.

    So far I'm impressed. Good FnF, it's a real 270, narrow profile, thin, light, but stiff, moderate convex grind.

    I has a slightly different profile than their stainless. I have a question into Koki about that. I wonder if they farm it out?

    Looks a lot like a Konosuke. Who coincidently makes a Swedish stainless.
