It is an odd looking bird but we’ll see... not usually a 210ish fan but we’ll see.. got hands like a gorilla...
I like the TxK so much I’m on the hunt for a 270mm to try!

Will do. Trying to keep an open mind although it’s way outside of what I usually like.

Is it the black handle or the reddish brown one on the Jiro?

I also have big hands, but I just adore smaller handles. Sounds odd I know, but that’s just how I’ve grown accustom to them. And dude, a 270 is gonna be a frkn axe!!

I have an extra 210mm Jiro new that I got by accident - if anyone interested. I bought one, it never came, they sent another, then the first one they found was shipped by sea in error. I ended up with a 210 mm Gyuto and a 240mm Gyuto - latter, I plan to keep once it arrives. I expect both to arrive over next 1-3 weeks

I think I will start learning how to make my own knives. Because ar the rate prices are going up for these artisans, hand made knives will become luxury items. Couple of positive reviews and these guys jump the 1000$ mark as if they are some renowned artist or national treasure.

Even pizza cutters sell for $1000 these days...
“completing what is arguably the most unique and exquisite damascus pizza tool we have had the privilege of holding.”

Arguably? Their damascus pizza tool drawer must be more full than mine.
