    anyone ever try their stainless gyuto? particularly the moly 240mm wa version. grind/profile, thickness/width, weight?

    I got a 270 moly wa version last month. Great profile, asymmetric grind, pretty thin I can measure it tonight and light for a knife that big. It's the longest of my three 270's. I've been meaning to do a review of it just haven't had the time. I will next week fo sho.

    I recently picked up a brand new but 2nd hand usuba from a member here. White 2 Yoshihiro 180 kamagata to be exact and I love it. Fit and Finish were good. Honestly for what you get I feel they are the best value around, from the wa-gyutos to the single bevels really well done knives for what you pay.

    Is this because a takobiki is harder to sharpen than a yanagiba? Or are you referring to single bevel knives in general or something else?

    If you maintain any knife to the level that bieniek does, they are all hell to maintain!
    He's a little bit of a perfectionist.
    He may have been referring to the length and likelihood of it curving/bending/warping.

    Since your a direct competitor, even if your honest-your opinion may be taken as biased. This is a forum for people who actually own a Yoshihiro knife with helpful comments.
    Your ultimate interest conflicts with the interest of the questionnaire's. You may feel this may be unfair, but in your industry this is how it is.

    Besides, I don't see Yoshihiro talking trash about your business anywhere.

    Lol. Jon sells Yoshihiro products - this ranting makes you look foolish.

    As the starter of this thread I think you should mind your own business, and not resurrect an old thread to trash-talk anyone-especially Jon.
    Also, I'd take Jon's advice over just about anyone else. He is quite knowledgeable and does a lot more teaching and contributing 'round these parts than he does any pimping or selling of wares.
    Meh.
    It's too early to get grumpy.
