    Sakai Jikko Akebono Blue 2 by Kenichi Shiraki

    AFAIK I don't really know who does a lot of stainless clad with carbon core in Sakai, it is very interesting. I use to ask about the possibility of stainless with carbon core/ powdered steel but didn't get a satisfying answer.

    Rationally, probably the last thing I needed to buy is another 240mm gyuto. So much for rationality. Looking forward to receiving it.

    Larry, glad to see you being irrational, and I look forward to trying it out at the next ECG.

    James, I am not in the market for a knife in this category at the moment, but if I were I would be interested in having the option to get a ligher handle (classical ho-wood or burned chestnut) for a more pronounced front-forward weight balance.
