Hi. Are you talking about the 240 Tojiro? I'm wondering if the 210 would be close to the 240 in toughness. I see that they are quite a bit different regarding spine thickness.
Thanks much.

RAIB <> We're talking about any Western Deba, but the Tojiro DP Western Deba has dominated this topic. Interesting observation you make regarding spine thickness. My hands on experience is only with the 210; it is a beast of a knife. I own one & use it regularly. The profile is available in 240, as well.

I predominately use a laser as my Gyuto, and when "it's just too much"... the western Deba gets pulled. Also, as Ken points out... it's great for those ignorant beings ITK that have no respect for steel.

I have the 240 and have sharpened the 210 - both beasts and similarly tough. My preference is the 240, but I like larger knives in general. You would be fine with either size.

"Ignorant beings ITK" - Just had to quote that phrase :) Puts a smile on my face thinking of where I might apply the expression :)

I bought the 240 Tojiro just for this purpose. It works great - can split a chicken in no time. It is really heavy, though, and I don't use it for much else.

THYDE <> Yah, your knife is 3mm thicker than the 210 I have so I have to imagine it has considerable heft. I enjoy the 210 for the tasks in which I find it appropriate. It is what it is, you know...
