    I don't really consider it a brute - this strikes a good balance of sturdiness and finesse. even though it's far from the thinnest BTE knife I have it'll slice just as thinly as my Shig, Yusuke special, or 270 Yoshikane (which is ridiculously thin BTE).

    Here's a good analogy (and a fun watch!!!) Kato is bare bones and sheer performance; Shigefusa is refined, elegant, beautifully finished, cuts like a dream - when it's sharp, but doesn't stay sharp at all.

    Kato 240 western gyuto


    Shigefusa 240 wa-gyuto
    Perfect analogies. I often use top gear reviews when I'm forming these type of comparisons in my head as well.

    New Marko's

    250 Damascus
    250 heavy chefs
    220 western

    Marko's triple play teaser picture. Needless to say fit and finish are over the top. All currently being rotated with the Damascus gone under 4 heavy hours of kitchen prep; performing beautifully; quite easy on the eye as well - just a beautiful knife, one you want to display next to your family pictures but know it likes to be used and "abused".

    The western is a mean and nimble supper cutter at 220, it's somewhat changing my perception of what I thought was a good size and handle for me...

    More details and pictures to come once I have more time with these.

    Marko, great work! Anticipation was more than worth while.
