Brock Cutlery 24 cm 52100 wa-gyuto passaround

    I picked up Mark’s gyuto a couple of weeks ago. I am impressed with the knife and would like to share his work with the forum by doing a passaround.

    Here’s a link to the sale thread: https://www.kitchenknifefora.com/threads/240-mm-gyuto-in-52100.3782/#post-54001

    The usual rules apply - keep it a week, sharpen it only if you know what you’re doing, insure it when shipping to the next person on the list. Post in this thread when you get the knife and when you send it to the next person. Mark would appreciate any comments or criticism, and you may either post about your experience in this thread or send it privately to Mark via PM.

    Preference will be given to Site Contributors. You should have a minimum of 50 posts or be known to me.

    PM me or reply in this thread if you're interested.

    His last couple of gyutos have really peaked my interest. Would like a chance to try one out.

  8. I will report when it arrives.
     
  9. Knife just arrived, had a couple of rust spots and the slightest bend in the very tip (can't photograph it, too tiny).

    Knife looks pretty sweet, will make it work a bit tonight but probably will have its first real workout tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear that. Rick, if I can fix this up after all the travels I'm happy to do it at no cost.
     
  11. The damage is really minimal but I just wanted to make sure it was known.
     
  12. It's on its way to MattS.

    Hey Matt, any comments on the knife other than what you posted previously?
    I'd love to hear your thoughts.
    Thanks!

    Yes, I will write up a full review in a few days. She is coming to the ECG with me so everyone can oogle and play. Will try to pass off to Mike then if he is there. If not I will mail it early next week.

    That is cool Matt. Can't wait to hear how the ECG goes. One day I will have to make it out.

    How about some feedback on the pass around anyone that has had a chance to use it

    Feedback will be made public after the pass around ends so that it won't introduce any bias for those yet to try the knife.

    Thanks for your interest.
