    Just put it on the stones and I'll give it try out at work tomorrow and post my thoughts. Was thinking on doing some aussie pass arounds at some point so could be good to get a more experienced pair of eyes on it.

    I saw those earlier and looked at the custom handles and thought " ok , he is buying shigs without handles and boxes in a pile and attaches "custom" but tiny compared to regular d shaped original ho handles on it", see where this will go. I hope they will not increase their production numbers and loose their quality. I also saw the Katos he listed 240mm and only 47mm tall , somebody is going to regret it once it needs thinning and you end up with $500 gyuto-sujihiki with no knuckle clearance .

    The last one I had was pretty light, too, something like 190g, if I remember correctly.

    Is that the one you got from Panda? I owned that knife at one point and it was 208g when I had it.

    Yes, that's the one. I'm probably mixing it up with another knife, in my memory, then. The previous Shig I owned was a good bit heavier, but also had a custom handle.

    Well, the Henckels Kramer has two huge holes in the edge, so I guess a comparison will have to wait.
