Weight, length, and width are all listed. So, I assume you're after:

Spine thickness - Can't help except to say that all of Shigefusa's gyuto's I've handled/owned had outstanding geometry and cut very well. They're hand made, so expect some variance in exact specs. I would probably label his gyuto's as a light workhorse. Definitely not a laser, but great geometry.....relatively thick spine for some weight.

Steel used - It's proprietary last I knew. It's supposedly a Swedish steel they have made specifically for them.....I think Shigefusa called it "spicy" or some such at one point. It's carbon, not stainless.

Cladding is iron - It will patina very quickly in my experience and can rust fairly easily if not well cared for.

If you want anything else, please shoot me a message.
