I bought the 210mm Gyuto on Massdrop and I have a few things to say about this knife:
  • Grind is pretty good for the price. It's fairly thin except when it gets to the spine.
  • Tip could taper and thin out a little more.
  • Cuts and slices very well.
  • Fairly resilient to damage.
  • Sharpness OOTB is reasonable.
  • Fit & finish was very good, handle was flush and the knife was comfortable to use.
This knife is great for proteins, for herbs, for anything that's not very tall. For tall items, a thin well-ground Nakiri is better. Tall foods like potatoes also tend to stick on the sides of this knife when you're cutting them up into slices. Overall, I think this is among the best options for the price. Also my edge bevel seemed to be more like 90/10 favoring right-side. I plan on making this 50/50 eventually through sharpening.

I'm happy with my Tojiro petty and bread knife, but have already gotten the gifts I was looking for back when I made that comment
In same price range though, i just happened across a BD1N 8" from a company called Nexus on Amazon, I'm curious about that, but I'm more into the Japanese style handles for my own chef knives That, and it looks more like a rocker then a push cut profile, but maybe this will help someone else :)

Hey guys sorry for the long post, just thought I'd weigh in here with some insight on this line. I've been using the 210mm gyuto (the one offered here) in restaurant kitchens for about three years now.
I love this knife, and I don't really have anything bad to say about it. It's my go to knife for during dinner service. It's shorter length compared to the 240 mm I use during prep means it's not getting in my way during service. And as long as you maintain it properly it will stay razor sharp for quite awhile.
While I do love these knives they may not be for everyone and there are a few things you should know before purchasing.
First they are not symmetrically ground, meaning the two sides of the knife are sharpened at different angles. This allows the knife to slice things thinner, but left handed users will notice the knife steering because it's designed for righties. (Korin has a great sharpening YouTube channel that covers all types of knives including asymmetrical grinds).
Second they are designed to be used with a proper pinch grip. Meaning you hold the knife by pinching the blade with your thumb and pointer finger then just loosely wrap you remaining fingers around the handle. People complaining about the handles being to short are likely using a hammer grip which gives you less control over the knife and should never be used anyway.
Third these are Japanese steel and are significantly harder than European knives. DO NOT USE A HONING STEEL ON THESE KNIVES. They are used to realign the microscopic teeth on softer steel knives between sharpening. This steel is more brittle and a honing steel will just damage them. Maintain your edge preferably with a few passes over a high grit stone, but ceramic or diamond sharpening rods work as well (I use a ceramic rod at work because I can't break out the stones during service).
Finally the blade shape is not very conductive to rock chopping. It's designed for push/pull cutting. Also it'd not a very tall knife so users with larger hands may find their knuckles hitting the board.
If those few caveats don't bother you then this is a great knife and I highly recommend it.

So the reason ceramic and diamond hones work while traditional honing steels damage japanese knives is because they are harder than the steel in the knife while honing rod steel is softer than the steel used in most Japanese knives. Typically honing steels are 65 hrc so that would be were I draw the line.

Any recommendations for knives for lefties? I'm a novice home cook with basic to intermediate knife skills. Currently using a Chicago Cutlery and Emeril knife set I've gotten from family as gifts. I find myself gravitating to the Chef, santoku, utility and occasionally the paring knife in the kit I currently have. I'd like to keep the Chicago/Emeril knives around for potlucks and such but have 1 or 2 nicer knives for can myself.

The handles are too short. Especially on the Gyuto. I cannot get all four fingers on the handle.

That's not how most kitchen knives are designed to be held, look up the pinch grip
