    Only 250mm even though its a 270? the discrepancy due to a wa-handle is that large? Thanks for the quick reply btw tk.

    I can't find the link that references this but, wa-handled knives are measured from handle to tip as opposed to western handled knives that are measured from the heal of the blade to the tip.

    I am aware of this, 20mm just seems like a large difference. The 2 wa handled knives I own are much closer to the stated length than that. In fact the Hiro 300 wa is 300mm along the edge.

    If the knife has machi, it is measured from handle to tip. Blades without machi are measured from heel to tip. But some makers measure differently, so there can be a bit of variation; 2cm seems quite reasonable for the handle to blade gap.

    I never measured it. I thought it was a 240 and I could tell it was longer than that. Perhaps it is a true 270. Sorry for the confusion. Pesky will just have to measure it.

    Mizuno measures from the handle. The cutting edges on my 240s are all around 223 ish.

    I have to apologize for not answering the questions about length etc... I have been busy at work an have been unable to get to the post office before it closes. I will try to grab it ASAP and get everyone the info they are looking for.

    OK, I stole a ruler from work. The magic numbers are 256mm length and 48mm height.

    Bump...seriously, nobody wants a kickass workhorse? If I was still working the line I would be all over this. Blue #2, great geometry.
