    Hi everyone,

    I’m finishing up a knife that i thought should go for a pa.
    It’s a sanmai gyuto with lanchashire and nickel on the sides with 1.2519 for coresteel.

    Measurements:
    Bladelength 225mm
    Height at heel 54mm
    Thickness at heel 4,3mm
    At middle of the blade 2,5mm
    Approx 30mm from the point it’s 1,5mm
    And 1cm from point it’s 0,7/0,8
    Weight lands spot on 200grams

    It’s slightly hollowground close to the edge except at the heel were it is more of a classic convex.

    Handle is just plain curly maple that has been finished with trueoil.
    Fit and finish on the handle leaves a bit more to offer at least from my own point of view, normally i would go for a little bit better finish but that’s not what i’m after with this.
    First and foremost it’s performance i wan’t feedback on.

    Rules are simple i’m thinking 20 spots with maximum one week per spot!


    Hit me up with a PM if you want in, i’ll give you the details with shipping and some other rules.



    (Having a hardtime taking a good choilshot i will probably post a better one later)

    Wow, pretty quiet thread for a passaround. I’d love to participate. Nice looking knife btw. What’s the steel like? I’ve never tried it before.

    For some reason I thought this was outside the US for the international passaround. Just a home cook but I would like to be included if possible.

    I’ve never used a gyuto that was 225mm x 54mm. This is going to be interesting.

    Looking forward to using it.

    It's on the way to Pepsicola!

    Gotta say I liked it. Very good heft, very good cutter. Food release above average. More reactive than I like (but then anything non-stainless is). When using a passaround at work I typically keep a Gengetsu within reach in case things get serious. Things did but I never was inclided to reach for the Gengetsu - the Isasmadjen acquited itself quite well. Would love to see a suji offering.

    That sounds good! Let me know when it has arrived to you Pensacola.
    Suji’s are coming up in a not so distant future along with some highcarbon-core stainless cladding, just gonna get them to stick together :D
    Thanks Dave!
