This particular Gyuto is quite light overall and has great, slightly blade heavy balance. It has great feel in the hand achieved both with the lovely magnolia wood handle and the overall fit and finish. The ferrule and handle flow seamlessly together and the blade and handle are fitted together beautifully with no spaces where the tang and handle come together. This is a great knife for Professionals and Home cooks alike looking for a durable knife with great performance and edge retention.
