I already have a 270 Kono HD (gyuto) but I'm looking real hard at the 240 White#2 (gyuto) in the Fujiyama line. Does any one have any info on these more robust beauties?

I recently picked one up. Excellent knife. Sharpens quickly and gets very sharp. A good balance of flat and curve for the profile; thin w/ a gradual taper. The spine and choil are rounded and comfortable.

How much flat is there in the profile, tkern? And what's the height at the heel?

I like mine, i got the one with the basic ho handle off CKTG. It cuts well, is very thin...dont know if its thinner then the HD tho but it has a great fit and finish and developes a cool patina. In the future i'd like to get the fujiyama sujihiki, although i might have to get that custom made as i can't see anywhere stocking them?? here are some pics:

Love mine, much prefer it to the HD and standard white knives. Its a little thicker and heavier, but it wears it extreamly well.

Also, you can order them without a handle which saves some money and work if u want a nicer, custom handle on it.

Wow, great pics :)
I think it will be a nice change from the super-thin HD that feels a little too "whippy" sometimes.

Is it just me or is that crazy thin right behind the edge? Sure looks like it in that choil shot.

Yeah it is pretty thin at the edge, can hardly see it.

Just a clarification, the saya's not a custom but just a nenox one that I stained. Even after sanding, the magnolia wood doesn't seem to want to take a stain very well. It took days to dry completely and still turned-out a bit uneven (shrug), but I think it still looks a bit nicer than unstained.

Beautiful knife Mac. Good looking saya (definitely think it looks better stained, however difficult and imperfect the process was for you) and handle. Enjoy it.

I think it would be wierd. I've been trying one out of late and it's a very nice knife but for me, there are some better ones...or different and at least as good. :)
