    Kochi 240mm migaki

    Just pulled on a Kochi 240 migaki kiritsuke shaped gyuto for Jon at JKI..

    Anyone have some some info/take on this line?

    It says they are more substantial but still thin behind the edge, comes with octagon burnt chestnut...

    I was also looking ag the Gesshin kagekiyo 240mm white #2 gyuto, anyone tried these?

    I think you will like it. The Kochi chestnut handles are very comfortable they round the edges a little. I have the rough clad kiritsuke it is tall & the tip is very useful.

    Here is a link to a choil shot that shows off the grind pretty well on my 270 migaki. I really like mine and Mert Tansu has been known to say the 270 was one of the best cutters he's used, if thats any indication for you.

    I tested out a stainless clad k-tip 240 for a couple days before passing it off to a co-worker/friend. He is smitten with it. I liked it enough to try and track down a 270. Hopefully I will have a certain 270 migaki in the fairly near future. I really like the specs, workhorse heft, fairly tall and super thin behind the edge. I am really excited (especially seeing that great coil shot, tgfencer).

    Customfan- Let us know how it works for you after you get to use it for a few days.

    Cheers,
    rj

    Wow! I know people are keen on it, really need to try it out!

    It looks soo nice, been looking at a couple of other two that thought might be worth trying:

    The gengetsu 240MM stainless Clad White #2 Wa Gyuto
    And the semi of the bunch, the Geshhi heiji 240 mm semi stainless wa gyuto...

    Need to gets my hands on one of these babies!

    Wow- Badgertooth, such a nice looking knife. Jon and Sara have an amazing selection of great knives. Just speaking for myself... I would really enjoy a video clip of this knife in action. Just saying.

    I've owned multiple kochis and also a kagekiyo wh2 240mm Gyuto. I much preferred kochi, it just performs so well...thin but not wimpy feeling, with decent heft at the spine. I think you made the right decision.
