@labor of love can you explain to me what you mean by faux wide bevel. I’m having a hard to understanding what makes it a faux or a real one. You can pm if you want as I don’t want clog this thread. I own a Hado white 2 “shiro” and was just curious.

nice! loving my 210
Cheers! It was a tough decision choosing between the 210 and 240. Went with the latter because I tend to do more supper parties while traveling—a longer knife beneficial for the larger amounts of food prepped; knife sometimes left sitting for a while covered in meat juice, etc.

The Sumiiro definitely has some nice heft to it.

There's a finish "painted on" that mimics the look of a wide bevel.

Sorry about that. I misspoke. Knife is great but the finish itself feels a little sticky.

This thing showed up the other day. No idea how it happened. 🤷‍♂️

165mm Hitohiro Togashi Petty.
Stainless clad White #1. 156mm edge length, 28mm tall at heel, 2mm thick at heel.

I’m smitten with it. It glides through fruit and veggies.

@Kevo90 sent me tracking for this from London less than 12 hours ago, and it's here already (I'm in California). My quest to acquire KS profile knives continues. Got the Kashima not too long ago, and the Vintage Sabatier also not long ago, and here's the KS. Hopefully I can exercise some self control since I don't know how many 240mm gyutos a fella can (should?) have, but I've got a lot.

with the kashima:

all the flavors so far, the modern sab, kashima, vintage sab, and the KS:

Then maybe a Mazaki (2021 profile) or Fredrik Spåre MCX next time. Profiles are quite close but with a different cross section/grind so you can experiment different cutting feels.

Curious... same thing happened to me. Weird...

A Yu Kurosaki Senka-Ei 240mm Gyuto has landed at my doorstep. It's flashier than my knives usually are, but since it's not damascus, I count it as not yet too flashy. I saw it in the shop and well, it triggered that K-Tip urge that I have had for 10 years or so. I liked the simple handle and the modern shape. Fit and finish are quite good, they just forgot to smoothen the right side of the spine - left side is perfect lol. Not a big deal, will take like 2 minutes to fix. The rest of the knife is flawless.

Profile is a bit more round than I expected, I was expecting a Nakiri hidden inside with a almost-flat back portion of the blade. But I didn't check this with the vendor, so that's on me 100%. I rarely ever do rocking cuts, so I'd have liked to have that. But we'll see if this is relevant in the long run.

Feeling guilty, since I just got the great Ashi Ginga just last week. Now I've really upgraded my gear. Even though... maybe a fitting petty or two? :rolleyes:

It feels a lot larger than I expected, like it's 1/3 bigger than the Ashi, which it isn't.
EDIT: It is! The whole blade is 270mm, the cutting edge is 250mm. The Ashi has 240/230mm respectively, which is what I expected. That explains why it feels so long :D . Weight is 184g, so quite light all in all with just enough weight not to be a pure laser anymore.
