Given the two examples listed it looks like the specs on the product page are wrong. It's beginning to look like the 240 is running 10mm shorter and 20-30g heavier than listed, this can be very significant to some. I wonder if the 210 listing is as far off.

I’m out so I can’t check my work so I’ll update the specs based on these.

I’ve got another 50 on order of the 240s. When I get them I’ll check again.
Thanks for the response Mark. I'm sure this is just a small oversight somewhere but a little clarification at some time would be nice. It only matters to me at this point because of the size of my collection now. Sometimes I'm looking for a knife with certain specs for what I want to try next. The confusion had me on the fence here because of the uncertainty of what I would be getting.

If it's not to much trouble, could you double check the length and weight of a 210. Would like to be sure if it is under or oversized too.
I double checked the 210s and put updated the specs for them.

Thanks Mark, this is a line that I'm very interested in!

Hi, I am wondering how is the grind compare to the SG2 version or Shibata AS 240? or to Takamura Migaki?
Is it Super Laser or better or more wedging?

Thank you

The Ryusei is ground better than the SG2 I tried, but not as well as the Shibata AS. The Shibata is the best cutter I have ever used, period. And I've tried most lines of knives on CKTG.

The Takamura is more laserish than the Ryusei.

Looks and sounds like a great knife it was one that I was looking at before making a decision on a new knife for work.
