It is more lightweight than I am used, but that isn't bad. I really like this knife. Great knife, incredibly sharp. Bought it for work, Im a line Chef at a local restaurant.
Is this handle confortable for a man with large hands? Probably not...good luck! Where is this made? It's made in Japan from lightweight Japanese steel the keeps its edge. A beautiful blade that I highly recommend. Is this a 50/50 grind 70/30 bevel, as standard for gyutou knives.
