    Man, that is a lot of knife. Intimidating to me for sure. I just recently started using an undersized 240 and have a KS 240(255) on the way. I could not imagine nearly 300mm of blade!

    I tried that exact knife for a few weeks recently and I have to say it's much more nimble than the size would make you think. Using the tip is a challenge/adjustment but other than that great for big stew meals and going through a lot of cabbage.

    Yeah but I have been using 165-180mm knives for much of my life, even after my switch to J-knives. A 210 didn't sit well with me, for whatever reason. However, I am oddly attracted to knives in the 170-190mm range as well as a new found attraction to knives in the 225-235mm range. Now with the KS on the way, that is a reassuring statement!

    I'm mostly a 235mm gyuto guy. I like the combo of 180-190mm and 230-245mm gyuto, that knife made me crave something bigger for a change of pace tho.
