    True that's not too bad. The first batch looked super raw

    Thanks. The reason I ask is because the site has the 270mm listed at 253grams and the 240mm at 255 grams!

    Great looking profile, tip and blade shape on that 270mm. They’re really tempting.

    I think that maybe down to the fact that the 270mm is ground much thinner than the 240mm.

    About Mazaki's grind... I have both the 180 gyuto and 180 petty. On both knives, the grind looks slightly convex at first. When polishing them, however, I have noticed that the bevels are actually quite flat, like a wide bevel knife that had its shoulders smoothed or "blended in" with the blade face.

    Performance confirms that - a bit stickier than my Kato or Toyama, although still a great performer.

    Now I need that 150 yanagi...
