I have a regular sakai yusuke 240mm gyuto, and I think it is a full 1mm thicker at the spine above the heel than that. Weighs 136g and is pretty flexible already. This sounds like more of a garotte wire than knife.
I see Keiichi is expanding his range a little now which is nice to see. He sells a stainless 210 petty now and he is selling Sakai Yusuke gyutos with ebony handles. If anyone is thinking of buying one of these thin knives Id say just email him, I've bought loads of knives from him and he is incredibly helpful
Hi All, apologies for resurecting that thread, but was wondering if anyone ever purchased one of those Special Thin Gyutos or even the Petty. If yes, I would be thankful for your thoughts and opinions on it. Thansk!
Asking a question about one of his ebay listings should do the trick for getting in touch. He runs Blueway as far as I can tell - At least in the past he was the one responding to my questions regarding ebay items under Blueway
