    Very sharp out of the box, feels much bulkier than i had envisioned, nose is fatter , it's like waving around a Scottish broadsword.
    Slices very good, I portioned out a pork loin & a pair of Tri-tips. No patina yet, I'm guessing the blade is coated, will pick up a pint
    of Acetone on my next homeDepot run & give it a wipe down. For my next blade I've got to hunt around for a gyuto/yani
    hybrid. tall at the heel. minimal belly, low tip & a more pronounced spear point. if there is such a beast

    That Richmond Ultimatum is a beast. Is the blade really 285mm?

    That does not ring any bells. Usually the ones with lower tips aren't that tall at the heel. Actually sounds like a santoku minus the spear point part.

    sounds like TC blade to me, 51mm heel high, 99/1 asymmetric grind & 95/5 asymmetric edges, flat & low tip edge profile

    So I have no idea how this already arrived, but it was a nice surpise to come home to tonight...



    Kochi Migaki, 240mm. Quite humbling as a rookie sharpener to see how much I have to learn, thanks for the promp delivery and razor sharp edge Jon!

    edit: and sorry for the crappy iphone pic

    that's getting closer, tip is right: but no dimples. less neck in front of ferule, 57mm at heel 50/50 grind , steel needs to be AS or 1.
    and I want it for 450.00 or less
