    Takeda? Knifewear has them just call and tell them what you want. I don't know why they aren't on their website

    So, I've found my new Japanese love....



    Beautiful work, Dan. In terms of comfort, the handle is up there with the Kramer handle.

    This knife is a beautiful cutter, hefty and dead sexy, all-around.

    Looking is great but I feel the need to know the profile. How come so many of these knives I can not find a website for?

    Lefty and/or Rick,
    If you get a sec, could you expound a bit on how the Itinomonn cuts and feels? Maybe a couple comparisons against a more common gyuto? I really like the looks of the western, no bolster gyuto.
    Thanks.

    Chefdog, it's quite different than most 240s I've used. It feels very substantial in hand, with a forward balance around the eyes in "meh" symbol (kanji). The grind has very nice foo releasing properties, even for a lefty. Some items climb the blade face, but mushrooms, carrots and pineapple that I cut yesterday (two separate meals) pretty much stayed on the board. I'd rate it with good food release, but nothing revolutionary. With that being said, I'm getting crazy thin slices with it, and it cuts and dices onion like they're hardly there. I haven't had a lot of use with it yet, since it got hung up with the courier, but so far I'm 0% disappointed, and very very impressed with the knife, and even more so, Maxim. I think it was a very good purchase, and if the Western is a bit too pricey, the Wa KU Itinomonn is beautiful, as well. The one thing you won't get is beautiful, but simple (aesthetically) handle work by Twistington. The coke bottle on this thing is spectacular!

    Sorry for the little review, guys....

    No problem. I should correct myself: the balance point is halfway between the front of the scales the "the eyes".
