I'm debating whether to add a santoku to my collection...

The one pictured here just made my shortlist.

sizes correspond to the name of these Hide knives?

mean, for example, Heiji size is considerably larger than in the title.

Other knives are less then size on the title.

knives with a machi in the tang are measured from the handle to the tip length-wise and knives without are measured from the heel to the tip as a general rule. So, deba and such are heel to tip and santoku, yanagiba, etc. are handle to tip length-wise.

New Gesshin Hide Knife for your sushi roll cutting needs ;)

This sushikiri bocho was specially designed for the type of work often seen at US sushi restaurants- cutting rolled sushi. The Gesshin Hide craftsmen thought this size and less drastic belly would make it easier to use for this prupose. Sushikiri bocho are designed to be thin behind the edge, so as not to wedge while cutting through rolls. The gentle curve facilites a rocking motion for this action.

for the sushikiri? Its roughly a 50/50 blade as are the santokus and the kurouchi knife. The rest are all true single bevel knives with an urasuki and hamaguri grind on the bevel (including the murakumono knife).
