Great write up, nice video, great pictures! Looking forward to trying it out. My girlfriend likes the pictures and her jaw dropped a bit watching you cut the carrot and potato and shaked her head in a great way when you mentioned parsnip cutting.

I'll let her try it out a little bit when it shows up. May have a potential gift for her eventually. Time will tell.

One thing I refrained to add - as I wanted to see if it went noticed - is that, as many JK are, this Gyuto has a slight bend out of the handle. It is a simple bend, not compound, that can be rectified in a few minutes. I did not repair it because I wanted everyone to see it. I'm ONLY bringing this up now because I want BBC to inspect this before he passes off and see it if he hadn't already noticed. With 8 person's hands on this knife, I don't want anyone to blame anyone on it if it's noticed somewhere down the line.

Anyhow, look down the spine with your dominant eye from tip to ferrule, and you will see it.

Carry on... :lol:

Hi Mel, I notice most of my JKs have a slight bend in them too. I detect it by putting the knife side on a flat surface then pressing it down front, side and back and compare how it rocks or doesn't. Of course some blades are convexed and I take that into consideration but after comparing how both sides move/don't move and shifting the blade forward and back with more or less of its surface on the table you can usually tell whether there is a bend and where along the blade it is.

In the past I've tried bending it back but feel like I could do more damage than good. These days I don't bother to try fixing it. You said it could be fixed easily. How do you fix it?
