I just bought this knife from Bishamon a couple of days ago. I bought it for 2 reasons; at $200 it was a screaming deal, and I never owned a 300 gyuto. While used, this knife is too nice for me to use it in the capacity I'd planned as a beast of burden/beater.
About the knife. It's used so there are some light scratches on the face and there is some wear on the handle. It has a good edge on it. It is a thin knife but I wouldn't call it a laser. Bishamon got it right when he said that it doesn't feel 300mm big.
Sorry about the pics...Bishamons pics of the knife are still up and better than mine.
