    By the way, as far as "clunky" is concerned, it is a little more blade heavy than most balancing at about 30 mm in front of the heel. In terms of weight, the Carter was 188 g, the Kochi, 206 g and the HD 196 g. The Carter was rehandled...

    Mmm sounds like one to look into

    Work is not a place to keep thin at, in general. But I have taken my thin ones in years ago and I was always nervous of others (non knife cooks) trashing them for me while I couldn't see them...

    The Kochi definitely looks super thin behind the edge in that pic and reminds me a lot of my Takedas in that respect, which is a great thing!

    I actually like how the 270 kurouchi gyuto looks much better than the 210s I clicked on originally. How is the handle size, big/small? How is the V2 in sharpening and retention? (looks really good for edge taking)

    240. i'm sure it'll be shorter than my 240 Yoshi and Shig, but should be a long enough. i'll likely get it re-handled.

    fwiw, they are measured from heel to tip... pretty much a true 240
