    Well damn, and I just ordered my first Gyuto(Fujiwara carbon steel) from Mark on the 5th and along comes that on the 8th. I'm gonna go root under the couch cushions and car seats!

    If you can get it I'm sure you'd be happy but at least you've got some carbon coming, and you can't go wrong there.

    oh man, looks like we have a solid contender for a cheap (well, cheaper than a tadatsuna/suisin), waifish wa-gyuto. I might just have to try one of those...

    $130, VG10, wa handled, and not handled or ground towards right handed users ( I'm a lefty)? The only reason it's not exactly what I want is that it's not a 270mm, and I'm gonna ask about that before I drop the coin! If they offer a saya it will be like they read my mind.

    ETA and I'm keeping the Fuji!
