    A bunch of new Gesshin Hide knives up on the website including a 300mm Kensaki Yanagiba, 150mm and 120mm Debas, 240mm Yanagiba, some santokus, a really cool antique-style knife, and something very special hidden towards the bottom of the page.

    I'm debating whether to add a santoku to my collection...

    The one pictured here just made my shortlist.

    mean, for example, Heiji size is considerably larger than in the title.

    Other knives are less then size on the title.

    knives with a machi in the tang are measured from the handle to the tip length-wise and knives without are measured from the heel to the tip as a general rule. So, deba and such are heel to tip and santoku, yanagiba, etc. are handle to tip length-wise.

    Hi Jon - are you going to get more Hide gyuto's, besides the beautiful honyaki's?
    Shibui - simplicity devoid of unnecessary elements

    New Gesshin Hide Knife for your sushi roll cutting needs

    This sushikiri bocho was specially designed for the type of work often seen at US sushi restaurants- cutting rolled sushi. The Gesshin Hide craftsmen thought this size and less drastic belly would make it easier to use for this prupose. Sushikiri bocho are designed to be thin behind the edge, so as not to wedge while cutting through rolls. The gentle curve facilites a rocking motion for this action.
