Please help us understand this Global Heavy Weight chef's knife. Never seen/used said knife. Is it more western deba, or just a workhorse. Just want to be clear first.

Did you want to stick in the world of Western? Or are you trying to branch into a Japanese profile?

Peggs - that Tanaka Ginsan is a great value and has really nice geometry. You can see the video for details, but once you clean up the choil/neck and spine a bit (rough OOTB), it's a different knife and very comfortable in the hand. You'll want to put your own edge on it as well OOTB. It sharpens easily - nice core steel.
