    No. Probably Blue #2 Honkasumi. But a steel at this price, as new it runs $350ish, if you can find one.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Guys, I figured I should explain what happened quickly. I pulled out of the deal (sorry AGAIN, Mike) because my best buddy of a dog got injured right before I was going to finalize the details with Mike. Combining the fact that my pup is more important than knives, with the Carter suji purchase, I just couldn't make it happen.
    However, the gyuto is one hell of a deal, and if it's still around later on, I might just pull the trigger again.
    Mike is a class act, and someone will be lucky to scoop this one up.

    I'd pick it up, but I don't need two ...

    Thanks, nothing to be sorry about. Pups are much more important.
