Cacho is on a vacation so it was time to sharpen a weeks supply.

How did you sneak those in?... Congrats on the new found freedom.

I'll have to try a Mizuno out but seems pretty similar to Shigefusa. I know the blue steel would have better edge holding abilities, but I'm a home cook so that's lower on my list.

You'll have to ask him. I asked him to refine an Ultimatum and I got it back all sleek and shiny with the new handle.

A knife I find myself using quite a bit. Thanks again Mario!

I roll with a Kato 240, Henry handled forgecraft 270, CCK 1301, and a 240 Marko Watanabe kiritsuke... I thought that was exorbitant... Time to go back to school...

After an entire shift with the white Mizuno, (Veg prep, tuna slicing, roast pork slicing) I noticed the edge didn't last through the shift. It was fine for most tasks but you could tell the difference on the tuna and tomatoes. Not a surprise. Some quick stropping and it came back pretty good.
The Mizuno stainless did surprising well the day before. Not as rough a shift but slightly impressed. I don't like the flex in it.

It's going to be a busy day today so I'm pulling out old faithful, the suminigashi Mizuno. I get a little fuzzy thinking about it. Weird, ay?

The handle is black ash burl.......The blade WAS and I do mean WAS an 19c27 ultimatum....it was thick enough for me to completely regrind.

Ugh, the dukey that slips by when you're not paying attention. A simple thing like picking out a steak per temperature! Argh!!!

Solid. Pleasure in the back, made me wish I had the big tables like back at the hotel.
Wouldn't bring it on line for carving or rolls.
Wouldn't probably spend the money on honyanki for this one, but I guess the clads are more reactive than average.

At a different place... with a different pay scale... it could be a great choice, but I'm still looking for something that will work better for me.

Edit. Also, I lied ... it was the blue.

Yep, that's the one. I noticed it had a sizable chip in it so I didn't sharpen this time. It will be a little project.

That carter was a good investment. I bet the same knife would cost a little bit more now
