Well... that's what is known as "laying it on too thick", trying to illustrate the spirit of the thing.  Don't take it as a script :-)

Too funny, I knew there was going to be a catch or punchline. Lol

 

"love my country" but "fear my government"  Something is just wrong with this

 

 

 

Looking for info on entry level J-knives? Need help on finding the most bang for your buck? Hope you enjoy learning from the info here, I know I did!

The Moritaka 270mm Deluxe Gyuto (Blue #2) showed up this morning and some preliminary thoughts (pics later):

 

1. It's both huge and "unintimidating" at once (once it's in your hand anyhow - pretty intimidating to just look at).

 

2. It's pretty light. The 270mm mori is the EXACT same weight as my 240 Hattori HD. Kitchen scale has them both at 238g. 

 

It looks straight and flat; although, I can't recall what exactly I was supposed to check for in terms of potential blade irregularities. Didn't feel quite as sharp as I'd been expecting but I haven't tried to cut anything yet, so I might be wrong and it might require an initial sharpening. 

 

D-shaped handle (I think that's what it's called - although it's quite subtle) in a very lovely rosewood. Overall, pretty awesome. Should be fun to use.

It's amazing how one big knife can make another (less) big knife look so small. The Mori and FH are both 270s, the Hattori HD is a 240, the Tojiro Santoku is 165, and the Kagayaki petty is 150.

 

New Japanese knifes

 

 

A couple to show the F&F and handle:

And one for the "barely" D-shape. When I held it left-handed, I didn't even notice any d-shapedness to it.
