    Alright, payment sent so I can now post a picture of my ~255mm Bloodroot Blades Gyuto.



    Here's what Luke had to say about it…

    "The blade is to your dimensions, HRC 63 from a highway boom-saw blade, in the 50's HRC on the top 1/3 of the blade (differentially tempered). Very thin behind the edge but it's a pretty stiff blade due to the strong distal taper. It's convex/hybrid grind, with stronger convexity on the right face than the back and from heel to tip. The handle is a R-hand D with blackwood, spacer, and our spalted maple burl. The burl is stabilized, but unlike some stabilization does slightly grain raise with use for a grippier surface than a straight polish."

    Here's a picture of the awesome distal taper.

    Nothing wrong with Dave's spa treatment, but they come very thin behind the edge nowadays!

    (Sorry about the dodgy pics and dirty coffee table)
    Itonomonn 210 Kasumi I picked up unused. It's a little heavier than I imagined it being, but it cuts like a dream. Nice and thin behind the edge. No wedging on mirepoix or potatoes. I haven't used it at work yet, just short-rib prep. The handle leaves a little to be desired - it's clunky. The next step will be an acid etch and then I think this will be the recipient of my first custom handle. (Done by a pro, not by me) All in all, I'm happy.

    This excites me. I'm due up in about 4 months with them. Looks like you're going to be super happy with this.

    Pete I love everything about this knife. BB knives have great aesthetics. Let us know how the knife handles when you get a chance. I love to see a cutting and handling review.

    I'm becoming quite the fan of Bloodroot! Think I need to get back on their list for a gyuto....

    for the record - this excites me too. to prevent the double post (duplication in the 'other' thread), I'll simply state that this is one of those things that I reaaaaalllllly want but don't need at all.

    my latest knife buy? kato dragon (following the other recent purchase of a hinoura). I need to stop.

    I almost snagged one of those dragons but decided to pick up a Harner/McLean Line knife instead. Should be receiving it next week.
