What's not to get? He posted some videos of some of his knives.

Never heard of the Yahoo Fusion before. Profile looks pretty good though. Handle is kinda Cut Brooklyn-esque.

no offense I thought you were selling them. Was wondering if you got called away or something. Got a little confused

Is this the one you were thinking about having made in an earlier post?

Yeah, I thought the same thing at first. When using the "what's new" link I found this, then afterwards I realized he posted in the media center, not the BST.

Man that spine looks beastly. Not a lot of taper, but the grind looks promising. How do you like it? Now that you included the maker's name I remember you posting about him before.

What? Video number 3 had no tunes? Man.

Indeed, the grind is very interesting. At the first glance I was a bit sceptic, about knife capabilities. But it performs extremely well, similar to Sakai Yusuke or Susin Inox Honyaki. Due to the urasuki grind, knife will tend twist left when cutting dense products.

Weird, I see not vids or anything... just text.

Where can we order Ichimonji knives in the US or Canada?

So I went looking for Yahoo's other knives. I like them. Some are very different, like this one.


here is a like to other photos of his work
note its in polish, and it is over 10 pages of pics.

Blueway Japan on ebay sells Ichimonji-Kichikuni knives, including the one that is featured in MichaelD's video.

Thanks for sharing. It's helpful to see video, it would be nice if every website selling knifes had a little 30second clip like these showing the knives from different angles.
Why camera where you using? Did the camera/lens have the image stabilization build in or did you smooth it out in editing? It's not easy to get hand-held video to look that smooth / even in motion. Nice work!
