    An observation, I've never seen such shallowly engraved kanji. Also, the wood of the handle has a peculiar smell (yes I sniffed the knife...)






    Sick blade. Congrats! This is not a honyaki, is it?

Oh yes, I will gussy mine up in due time, but what a fun knife! One of the sharpest OTB blades I've ever gotten.And my first Swedish steel to boot



    Thanks for posting this – I never paid much attention to Misono knives, and didn’t realize this line has such a great shape.

    Does anyone know anything about the steel – hardness?

    I’ve been itching for a 210 yo-gyuto (yeah, I know the 210’s have the flower, not the dragon) for a while as general all’rounder, and this is now a contender…

    Over the years that misono dragon 240 gyuto is my most used knife. I still use it. For some reason it's fun to cut with just like the ks is.
    Love the Burke. Congrats on the buy and hope you enjoy it.

    I like it so far. It's very different from the other gyuto that I have so there is an adjustment to be made there before I can really say how I feel about it. Once I got it honed it's better than OOTB. The handle is a little bigger than I'm used to but I'm starting to like it the more I use it.

    All of these are just my very newb feelings about this knife so far. I have a feeling that I am going to like it a lot once it grows on me.

    That Burke is outrageous! Congrats, Ed!

    The Dragon is...well, the Dragon. You can get a 210 without the flower, but c'mon...the Dragon!

    And finally, check out the grind on the Rodrige midtech! Hot damn.
