congrats - gorgeous knife - any first impressions on what the fuss is all about? Are we all Denka marketing victims through a fanboy community?๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

is it all press and no substance? Or the reverse?
This was a direct order.

Itโ€™s a beautiful knife. F&F is better than I expected. The Choil is rounded without me asking. The spine could use some work though. F&F on the handle is better than on my Morihei Hisamoto. There are no overgrinds that I can see and Gaku confirmed to me before he shipped it that there are none.

Using it for dinner tonight and will find out if โ€œ it will cut โ€œ as Doug would say. All in all Iโ€™m happy so far.

Thanks - aligned with my initial impressions when I ordered direct as well

Finally acquired a 270 KU Wat to complete the family photo.

what a lovely family, really well behaved little ones.

Can you send me a choil shot of the KU Gyuto? I have some choil envy going on right now. Also let me know that weight and heel height please

I got a KU Wat and just wanted to conpare - thanks

First choil shot is from my new 270 KU which is 275x60 305g.

The other pics are from a earlier KU 270 from a few months ago. Very different profile and grind, I had it reground and profiled so it actually had a useful tip.

Seems like thereโ€™s a few of these bullnose wats floating around come with much beefier geometry than the older style wats.

Thanks - if you look at p 647, you see the picture of a Wat I just got, similar profile to yours, but very different choil shot


was your a pro-line?

Yes mine was a pro line. Mine had a pretty similar choil shot to your before I got it reground. Sturdy knife and a good cutter, but having the shinogi moved up a bit improves it nicely.

I took it to a local knife maker who did it. If you have any knife makers that are near by you should contact them. Re-grinding on a belt doesn't take very long so it usually doesn't cost too much.
