    I was comparing Yusuke's SS to their own white #2. I haven't used the Masamoto enough to comment on it's edge retention.

    What about Ichii handle with blonde ferrule, will it look good ?
    I haven't seen that combo, but I bet it would look good. I have a 210 petty w/ ho wood handle and blonde horn and I think I prefer it to the dark horn.

    At this point, ill buy whatever blueway puts up that has the new profile, stainless or carbon, "thicker" grind or thin. Im sure theyre all excellent performers. The thing is i dont think any of the new yusukes on ebay actually have the ks profile at the moment. Im pretty sure he would it "flatter profile"gyuto in the description if was.

    Agree. But the new gyutos don’t look like quite the same profile as their “original” ones, the Tadatsuna shape, if you will.
