    I touched up the handle and saya a bit, which included the pin. Otherwise its the same knife.

    Just got this badboy, this morning. I haven't done anything other than hold and look at it, but my initial impressions are very good. Nice taper, great handle, the grind looks nice, and we'll have to see how it goes from here.
    I'm looking forward to putting it to work.

    Alright, this is early, but I'm already impressed! I used the gyuto to make dinner and got this wonderful patina:



    And this wonderful meal :

    Ok, this baby will be getting sent out to brainsausage (whatever that means ) on Monday.

    I'm not going to post a full review, as there is one more thing I need to do before I ship it out. However, I will say that I fell in love with this gyuto! It's light, lean, cuts beautifully, release food very well (both left and right handed) and best of all, if just looks and feel damn good while doing so.

    I'll be sharpening it tomorrow, before shipping it out, so I'll address that in a day or so.

    Overall, this is one heck of a knife, and people need to watch out for Don's handiwork!
