    Pesky is right. It's a left-handed gyuto, made by TC. I've only used it a couple of times, but off the bat, I knew it was something special. The most intriguing part about the knife, besides the looks, is that it has me re-thinking what makes a good/great cutter. Heft and a proper grind (thin BTE with food releasing directly at the shinogi line) cuts as effortlessly as a laser. Between Rodrigue, Harner and Tslil, I seem to be more than taken care of in the "holy crap, this knife blows my mind and I'm going to steal it from Tom when his back is turned I don't care if I'm not left-handed screw it I deserve it as much as he does and he already has so many great knives it's sickening" department.

    I'm hanging out, waiting on my first decent knives to turn up, my 240 ******** laser wa gyuto, 150 hiromoto petty and just for kicks 1303 cleaver. Should be fun.

    My ******** Artifex AEB-L 210mm showed up this week. Primary bevel was so-so but that's not an issue since I'm going to do a reprofile. So far it did well for chili prep including processing a 2lbs chuck roast. Did ok at cutting up herbs which is the only time I do rocking cuts. My 1095 Landi custom is a little better at the rocking cuts but not as thin for trimming fat off the roast. Very light knife that is easy to prep quickly so it's going to see alot of use in the kitchen.

    One more...couldn't resist. Is it sad these pics are on my phone?



    As for steering, I guess it would, but I must correct it without thinking. I like how thin it can cut with little effort, despite being a badass bruiser.

    More Santoku spree for me, a humble KU finish single bevel Santoku from Iizuka-san. This is the thinest single bevel knife I have and have seen; crazy thin; even thinner than anorexics Arisugu A-type kiritsuke I have.
