    the tip on the Mizuno is pretty thick (no idea how thin it was, new), but it cuts pretty nicely despite that.

    The knife is with good weight, it is somewhere between laser and a heavy gyuto (such as Kato). Spine measured ~ 3.5 mm compared to 4mm for Kato.
    I used the knife on a lot of veggies, and I can say it definitely needs some thinning.
    The grind is flat from spine to ~1/2 down then it convexes, I did not have a lot of issues with sticktion.
    The steel was easy to sharpen and takes very nice edge, I can't comment on edge retention as I am not a pro so the knife did not go trough a lot of use.

    PS : Salty your Inbox is full. PM me who gets the knife next.

    Thanks for the opportunity to try the Mizuno.

    Because I have this weird thing about shipping I'm going to start it off with Danielsan because I'll drop it off when I see him on Sunday or Monday. And of course DeepCSweede will have to be last so he can drop it off at my place.

    In order:
    Danielsan
    Theory
    Eshua
    Pitonboy
    Edipisreks
    Mainaman
    Wenus
    Chinacats
    Chuck
    DeepCsweede

    Essentially everyone that PM'd me as instructed. Except DeepC, he's a homey. (Sorry I'm weird about rules. Mine anyway) When it comes back I'll send it out to everyone who responded in the thread.

    About the knife: Don't judge a book by it's cover. Give it a chance to grow on you. I'll sharpen and polish it up as best as I can on Sunday.

    Rick, if you want to PM danielsan with your addy that would be cool. I'll let you guys handle it from here.
    The list

    Box empty, thx.
