It's fairly hefty. If you want a more dexterous PM steel blade the Takamura Mikage in R-2 is worth considering.

If you're looking for a 240, the Haruyuki is nearly an ounce lighter. Uses SRS15 PM steel. Recently purchased it myself. Mr. Knife Fanatic's review of the 210MM is spot on. Awesome knife

Choil shot of the Hap40 240mm gyuto. I would put it more in the workhorse than laser category. My Tanaka R2 is crazy thin, but like double the cost. I would check out the others that were recommended. The Kohetsu 210mm's are lasers in the Blue #2 and AS versions, not sure of the HAP40 series; the 240mm AS Kohetsu is very similar grind wise to the HAP 40 I rehandled/converted to Wa and thinned.

The easy answer is "it's not". If you want a stainless laser stretch the budget a few more dollars and get a Kono. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ko24wa.html

I own a Richmond Laser, and I have the Kohetsu HAP40 Nakiri
Not even close. Besides the blade width, the Mahogany HO handles add too much weight.
Don't get me wrong, I am really digging the HAP40 steel, it's just not a laser.
I did a post earlier, we are still waiting to see the Kohetsu HAP40 with WA handle
Based on the profiile, it might be lighter in overall weight, but still not a Laser.
A Kono HD or HH is a great choice
The Richmond Laser in AEB-L another outstanding choice.
