In regards to the gyuto, I have read on-line posts saying that the 240mm honyaki gyuto comes with a 90/10 edge and a others saying that it comes with a 70/30 edge. I take it that is incorrect. I just want to confirm that the 240mm honyaki gyuto is 50/50 before I order. Thanks.
I used to be all concerned about knives being 50/50 bevel until I got my hands on and extensively used some 70/30 or so beveled blades. You will not have any issues with steering or anything like, also if you even try and give any attention to the bevel while sharpening you will find that it will be close enough. Just my two cents.
