Can't go wrong with a 240mm

Here's my board and some knives;

Image

That's a 8"/200mm Z-H 4 Star and a 170mm Tojiro DP Santoku.

Eye balling, I'd guess the board is 12" x 18" (305mm x 455mm) which is a standard catering size.

Now, I bought a 240mm Carbonext Gyuoto, and while it cuts well (and I love it for slicing meat) I find it too long for general use (my kitchen surface is a little cluttered), hence my questions a while back about a 210mm Gyuoto.

Just a contrary voice amid all the recommendations for longer knives.

I suppose a picture helps, lots of room for a <240mm

What a pretty board. It is tall enough my eyes tricked me at first and I thought you had two separate photos of the same board area stacked on top of each other. Split right at the line above the garlic. But I see it really just is that tall!

I have an 18" x 24" board in my kitchen.
That's my Kono 300mm suji on it.

Jeff, looks like a BoardSmith? Also that's a sick patina on that suji.

He certainly does. Here is mine, exactly half the size of yours, with a 240 mm gyuto on the diagonal.
