I cant see any bevel on the knife but it feels sharp. ill most a further review later tonight or tomorrow. taking my shapton pro 5000 to work with me.



The small bevel they put on from factory makes it hard to touch up after a long weeks work. I ground a larger bevel using my latte 400 into it and then wen through my progression. Knife cuts very well and can take a beating.

40# chicken breasts damn those are large. Sure you don't mean 40#'s of chicken? :P :lol:

Yeah it's sharp out of the box, but for us knife nuts it just really isn't :lol:

since we appear to be picky tonight, 40#'s most likely isn't what you meant either. As in 's implies singular possessive. Now if you actually meant the chicken belonged to 40#, then yes, you did use the apostrophe correctly.

Yes, but the non-hammered is still in stock in the 240mm length. I'm a little surprised they lasted 24 hours.

I have one enroute but will be a couple of weeks before its in my hands. Can someone comment on the hammered finish? From the photo it looks like the hammered finish is not very clearly dimpled like some other gyutos with the hammered finish where those had evenly spaced and sized dimples over the knife. The Goko Looks quite random and messy really or does the knife look better live than from photo?
