    i am willing to chop down/santokify any shigefusa you have. 210s, 240ies, 270ies, 300eds, 330ies and so on, you name it, i'll chop it. no problem. if you send in 10 at a time i can give a discount.
    you can specify 3m cubitron 2 or würth cutoff discs and flapdiscs. result is the same either way.

    can confirm. I have a 240 x 68 with a low tip, which essentially makes it an oversized santoku

    Heiji makes a nice looking santoku. I’ve debated maybe getting a custom 240mm one, but I’m not sure how useful it would be.

    I feel like the weight distribution might make it a little clumsy/unwieldy.

    Right. Looks cool but might be impractical.

    You could grind that down to a nice 180mm!

    I’d go for the serrated edge on the spine. Make it a Rambo knife.

    10 crummy pics and all of the kanji side. I'm afraid to ask for a pic of the other side.
