Guys ... this looks to be an excellent example of one of Takeda’s Sasanoha gyuto’s. It’s stainless clad and looks to have one of Takeda’s amazing “s”grinds. I collect Takeda’s AS series fully reactive blades and would be grabbing this knife if it were the an AS blade. The stainless clad NAS blades are probably more attractive to the majority of users because of reduced tendency to rusting. Make no mistake this is an excellent knife with a wonderful handle being sold at a very reasonable price. It’s very easy to sharpen to a scary sharp edge. Edson is a great guy to deal with. Buy it! You’ll probably love it.

Also a Takeda fan but only in fully reactive. Otherwise I’d jump on this one. Really like his grinds. This is a great price with that handle.

I have this in a 270, it's great. Holds an edge better than anything else I have, and slides through everything.
