    You know, I was wondering the same about Heiji. I think asking for thinner than stock might actually not allow them to create this same type of geometry, but I could be wrong.

    Any more updates to this knife? Kind of interested in hearing more about it as you use it more.

    The only update I can give is that it is awesome.
    Light patina but not reactive at all, cuts super, still have not had to sharpen since last time I did so ~3 weeks a go.
    Get one while they available

    All the gyutos are gone (for now). There were still three left earlier today.

    Frankly I do not understand what more reviews are needed. A pro chef made a big review, I am home cook and made a review. Another member also did a review, if I am not wrong he is a chef too.
    If a pro says it performs then it performs. I know hard to judge by words, but for what it is worth I like it better than Shigefusa and I am a big Shigefusa fan.

    Mainaman - I remember someone selling off their 24 cm Shige gyuto recently (went in a flash). Was it you? Another member seemed to think it was. If so, that would be a big statement.

    No no no please don't misunderstand. Pro reviews are awesome, I trust you completely. I think I just like to read reviews in general

    Yes I did sell my Shige gyuto and also suji, and plan on getting Kato suji as soon as I have the money.
    I also have a 180mm Kato petty, cuts superbly as well.
