    How heavy is your suji?

    I made a monster suji. 320 mm (319 'cause i burned the very tip...) and 284 g w/o the handle. It works really well but definitely feels a little chunky toward the heel. I'm gonna put it on a diet and I'm wondering where I should think about stopping to refinish and test again. It's supposed to be a tall, substantial knife that can double as a sword in a pinch (j/k). So how massive is your most massive slicer?

    The 5 I have are all between 270 and 320mm in length, and weigh between 140g and 250g approximately, with most of them being in the 220-230g range. The Marko and Rader are the outliers.

    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
