I just got one of these in today
Wow, awesome blade! I have a 330mm Tojiro DP gyuto from several years ago, maybe before the VG-10 and it was used for watermelons and breaking down deer roasts, but that was it since it was so big and bulky. The Kono is much lighter and more nimble feeling. I normally use a 240mm, so I wasn't sure how a 4.5cm difference was going to feel. Honestly, I don't notice it all that much in playing with it. I will cut up stuff tomorrow with it and see how it feels on the board. Blade is stupid thin, prob as thin (or maybe thinner???) than my Richmond Laser AS and Tanaka's, on par with my 300mm Kono White #2 suji! Looking forward to using this, now I gotta figure out what I want to rehandle it with!!
