    Thanks preizzo!
    I'm really curious how heavy those red ebony handles are. Are they lighter than reg ebony?

    My only reference is the Tanaka Ginsan Migaki with a black ebony handle and compared to that I'd say the red ebony is lighter.

    So are these jin knives pretty abrasion resistant? Not that I'd ever have the cash. Just curious, cuz they're powdered no?

    I am pretty sure they are a high speed tool steel? Jon would be able to confirm, edge retention is amazing.

    Really well! The Petty doesn't get too much use, it's just a small companion for the Gyuto kind of

    But the Gyuto performs really good! I'd say regarding cutting performance and food release really only a few (my new Xerxes, TF Denka) can keep up. Profile is very versatile. Reactivity is there but not too bad.

    Can't really comment on edge retention and sharpenability yet, 'cause I test 2 Gyutos parallel right now
