    Yup totally relate to that myself but had no self restraint after being informed of said sale 🙄
    It’ll be interesting to see Mazaki's knives play out in the future for sure!

    Hopefully they’re put up for sale at some point.

    Just given in to temptation and ordered one of the new 270mm gyuto's with seemingly laser like grinds. I'll give an update next week.

    Very cool looking knife. Could you post some more pictures? It looks like a wide bevel, but could be just the contrast.

    The blade roads on the Mazakis all seem to be very, very roughly finished as if someone had to hurry up finishing them all. Do they just look that way in images or do they actually ship like that?

    The latest mazaki's come with a blended convex grind rather than the pervious Heiji like grind with pronounced shoulders.

    While their finish isn't in Shigefusa or custom territory, I wouldn't class them as roughly finished. I would say their average for this price point.
