It's a great looking suji, may have to pick one up myself sooner than later :)

These are Suji's! At the heel, they are 2.67mm wide and 40mm tall. They have a beefier grind than the AS Laser Gyuto's and it's a stiff suji, not a flexy one, which is exactly what I was looking for! I have a Kono White #2 300mm and a Artifex 270mm suji and both are flexy and I was looking for a stiff suji. Kanji are nicely done and the grind is good a convex, so meats slices should fall away from the blade nicely! I stuck a take off handle on it for now until I decide what I want to use for the real handle.

Here is is with my Tanaka R2 240mm gyuto:

No prob!! I've been eyeing the Masakage Mizu for a stiffer suji, but this one will be awesome!

Many thanks for posting the good quality pictures Taz
I just bought one myself, sans handle, so I am waiting to see what kind of handle I want on it.

Umm... not exactly. :roll: They shipped to CTKG without handles and are currently in the process of having semi custom handles put on by Isaiah. The above picture is of a blade purchased without a handle. Note how Taz explains the handle is a take-off from a different knife and placed on the tang for the photo. If you would like one without a handle click here ---> http://www.chefknivestogo.com/laser270.html

The ones with handles should be available shortly... stay tuned :)
