    As I mentioned before: The length on this one is 245 mm (that's along the edge), it sharpens up very easily and gets very sharp (as pretty much all carbon steels do).
    Handle size is on the large side of the medium range. It is similar in size to the handles on my 270 DTITK gyuto and 270 IT.

    I looked at it very carefully today and there is one very small deformation along the edge. I doubt 99.9% of the population would notice it, maybe even fewer than that.

    i've been having reading comprehension problems, lately. didn't even see the mention, despite reading your post. probably steel filings in my brain from sharpening too much, or something.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I was about to say that I put a lot of text together. It's easy to miss something.

    really nice knife. i gave the handle a quick refinish, as i dislike the burnt look and feel. i may put some more time into the handle before deciding whether i want to put a custom on. in terms of how it feels and how it cuts, my initial thoughts mirror tk's.

    That is a sweet knife! Looks awesome. I was immediately drawn to these when they came up on the website. That handle gives me some inspiration for what I want to put on my mizuno Gyuto. I think it looks real handsome. The spine seems to bend down unlike the shigefusa which is dead straight. Do you feel that when you handle it?

    it's really an optical illusion due to the way the spine thins. it's pretty straight.
