Hello,

Just a few quick questions regarding the Konosuke HD japanese handle gyuto's.
Do you know what the overall length is for the 240mm and 270mm gyuto's?
And do you have any idea of a time frame when you might be seeing any of those
comeback into stock? Same question for the Masamoto KS series as well.

Thank you very much for your time


Alex Linares

Hi Alex,

HD 240 is about 235mm
HD 270 is about 264mm

The Masamotos 240 is about 251mm
The Masamoto 270 is about 275mm (that is based on memory since I don't have them in stock)


Kind Regards,
Mark Richmond

Yeah that's totally cool.
So those measurements are from the tip of the blade, to the butt of the handle?
Thank you so much for your reply. I can't wait till these come back in stock!

Cheers,

Alex

Actually the way measurements are given are just on the edge. Some people do a straight line from tip to the heel which is what I usually do. You can also measure the whole edge by rocking the knife along the blade edge next to the ruller and that was takes into account the extra length including the belly. I don't normally do this.

Thank you guys very much

ALEX <> :arrow: A Kono 270 is pretty much a 17" knife, overall.
