I own a Henkel MC7000 gyuto... wait to judge, though.
I bought it when CKTG was closing them out(2011?). Wanted to try ZDP, at ~$200 I didn't figure I was going to find it any cheaper. Handle is stupid heavy putting the balance point an inch behind the bolster. Still, wait for it...
OK, now... I actually like the blade quite a bit and wouldn't hesitate to say the blade competes well with many of the $200 knives currently on the sight. That's right, I'm saying a Henkel performs as well as true J-knives. Go ahead and judge away
