Ah yes - a Yamawaku Gyuto in V2. I have one and it's a decent knife - eased spine and choil on mine and no over grinds. It takes and holds a great edge especially after a little thinning. I'm tempted to get a 240 or 270 someday. I lent it to a friend who was skeptical, but I notice he hasn't returned it yet either -
got my eyes on those as well. lol.
I have about 10 lbs of bacon to slice when it gets in. Haven't quite figured out where to put it...
I got one of these as a wedding present. Friend thought that since I was curing my own meats that I needed a deli slicer. My wife wasn't as impressed with his choice of wedding gift as we live in a condo and space is a premium. I keep it in my locker and bring it up 2 times a year to slice up my slabs of bacon after they are out of the smoker.
