    Yoshihiro blue #2 wa-gyuto.

    Having shifted the majority of my knives from carbon to stainless/ semi-stainless I'm beginning to yearn again for a little carbon in my life and was simply wondering if anyone has seen or used this blade.

    Something I just realized. Whenever I'm entertaining the idea of getting another carbon blade that is a little on the heftier side I almost always forget about zakuri. Those of you that have handled and or own a zakuri how does the length run? Ive found that 240 western handled to 270 wa-handled is my ideal range for length.

    True to length, if not a hair long.

    Dont quote me on this, but iirc Tosa knives are typically measured on the edge.

    I don't have a gyuto, but my Zakuri 165 is 165 on the blade...and I like it.

    The 240 Zakuri wa-gyuto I had measured 241.5 mm on the edge, overall blade length (tip to handle) of 255 mm.

    Must be the same one I have here in front of me. I measured 242 mm tip to heel with my ruler.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures, but it doesn't seem to be a laser, though not overly thick either. It is blue 2 mono steel which is the thing that intrigues me the most.

    I've given that knife a few looks myself, I sent the seller a note about some more details on it. All I remember off hand is he said it was hardened to 63 HRC. I remember the height being a little short for my tastes, something like 42-43mm, I think.

    My zakuri blue #1 240 has 240+ edge length. It's a little beast, but now a bit thinner and cleaner.
