i wish i was right handed
I'm not.... Still had no problems using it.
What is the actual blade length on this? Can I get a photo of the spine? Just trying to understand the thickness or reason it needs to be thinned. Thanks
(I've never had an 'A-type', and I can't speak for this one, but)...Aritsuga A-type gyutos have a reputation of arriving NIB with barely any of the final grind or finished edge on board, of being a real 'be-yatch' to work on the stones, and for being as close to 99/1 as you'ld see in any production gyuto.
They also have the reputation of being amazing workhorses once tuned up.
I really like the F&F on Kyoto Aritsugus.
Been wanting one of these for some time... any chance of seeing a choil shot?
I actually like the polish on the thinned blade road. Go figure. Up against the "brushed" machine finish it gives a yin-yang appearance to it. Then again, I'm easily dazzled by nonsense.
