My biggest criticisms of late are that they are too light, too flexible, and too flat-ground due to being so thin. I'd prefer a Yusuke gyuto with a little thicker spine to give it more convex face and a little more weight. My 270 gyuto has been my most used knife for over a year now, and I feel I've come to know it well. Don't get me wrong - it's awesome and I love it, and when I grind it down to a 260-ish suji, I'll get another one. It's just that in using other knives, my eyes are opening up to other possibilities for what a knife can be besides a laser... just get one, you won't regret it!!!
