How is the Kanemasa Minamoto M-series line on sale different from the Kanemasa Honsho E-series? What is the weight and approximate blde thickness of the Minamoto-Kanemasa 240mm gyuto?
The blade thickness of the Minamoto Kanemasa Gyutou 240mm is approximately 2.0mm (max)(0.08″) and the weight is about 205gr (7.23oz). The difference between Minamoto Kanemasa and Honsho Kanemasa E-series is the steel material itself. The one used in Honsho E-series tends to have more carbon content and bit harder than Minamoto M-series, so it would be easier for average people (non-professional) using the Minamoto series. We hope this might help you.
