Sakai yusuke 240 gyuto

Hi Mark

I'm in the market for a new gyuto and this one caught my eye. Just a couple questions - in the picture the profile appears similar to the ks/ultimatum profile is that the case? Secondly, is there much flex in this blade? I assume there is a little flex in it, but I do prefer a stiffer blade.

Yes it's pretty similar but not identical.

They have a thin version that's whippy but the ones we carry have only a tiny bit of flex. We decided on the slightly thicker ones because of this and we were also concerned that the thin ones might have durability issues. Usually a good indication of flex is the spine measurements. Thicker = less flex.
