Forget all you know about French stainless — usually very soft, hardly taking an edge, with a terrible Fit&Finish. This is a lightweight, made of Sandvik's 14C28N. Excellent F&F, at the level of a Misono's, kept at a well-balanced 60Rc. Comes even with a decent factory edge — rather exceptional, I'd say. Only available as a 250mm but its weight — <190g IIRC — doesn't make it feel like that. Balance point in front of the handle. Comes with a leather saya. A snapshot
