I recently ordered this Kanetsune
210mm gyuto. The price SMKW offers is roughly half
the best price I've ever seen on this knife!
The few initial reports indicate this knife is pretty darned close to a Shun for right around 1/2 the money- if this is so we're talking a bargain!
For the price you get V-Gold 10 steel clad with 33 layers of Stainless Damascus steel. They claim the hagane is Rockwell C 60+. I purchased the 210mm for $60 with free shipping!
I'll keep you posted!
