If you've got a chance to handle a production "Tojiro ITK Shirogami Wa-Gyuto 210mm" I think that there is lot of promise in the basic design premise: stout, blade-heavy design, a heel that's taller than most suji's but on the long&low side of gyuto profiles. I spent a few months with one before I gave it as an XMAS gift.
If you didnt increase the height but kinda "stretched" it another 15mm primarily adding onto a "sweet spot" at the nose, it would be a really cool knife: kinda a gyuto-suji (gyu-ji?).
Obviously a DT knife would have much better attention to detail, fit&finish, etc, but I like working knives that still have a little rustic, rough n' tumble charm and just look cooler with some well-earned wear.
