    There's a rather telling cutting video on IG where it stops dead cold in a carrot.

    That vid only shows two things
    1. It's not as thin as a nakiri
    2. If you are going to use a 180 gyuto to cut a fat ar$e carrot, put some muscle into it!

    I have a 240 en route, so we shall see

    Im actually a fan of drop-nose gyutos ( not santoku), but i dont know about that grind, looks like a wedge-fest.

    And for 400 dollars i dont plan on taking the chance and diving in.

    To me it looks like a nice knife for braking down fish or anything you don't want to do with a thinner edge. But I don't own one yet.
