    Masamoto KS Gyuto

    Have an opportunity to buy a 300 KS Gyuto. Anyone have any experience with this size KS blade? Have always wanted to try the KS range but haven't ventured longer than 270 with a gyoto yet...

    The 270 should have 285mm...they are usually longer than declared

    I can't comment on the 300 but my 270, as noted above, runs 285 and is 55mm tall I'd personally buy it but i'm used to 270+ blades.

    You will soon get used to the new size -- expect a few tip repairs, though.
