These are being pitched to me. What do you think? I have choice of white #1, blue #2 or vg-10.

They would cost about $275 for a 240 gyuto. $240 for a 210mm gyuto.

I personally dont care for the looks of the handle. The blade looks nice enough. Do you have any other info on it? (Specs)

Upon first glance, I dont think i would choose this knife over any of the knives you carry @ the same price point. At almost $300, a western knife with no bolster seems silly.

I too am not a fan of the handle. I can think of a lot of knives on the site that I'd by sooner for around $300.

I have become an exclusive fan of japanese handles. I wouldn't go near that knife. I have also learned to really dislike vg10 because of micro chipping.

No on the handle. Blade looks nice, but assume nothing to differentiate it from your current inventory.

Jumping on the pile. Don't like handle.

Blade looks ok, but hard to say without knowing more
