Just a quick pic of my Xmas gift to myself. I'll post more when I get somr patina going. I've used this for about three days now, I'm VERY happy with how it cuts, not to mention the finish is awesome.

Just got this Suisin Shironiko Takohiki 300mm. It has a nice little bit of marbling collar, mostly black though. Fit and finish is quite nice for its price bracket. I guess this should qualify as a holiday gift to myself too.

A lot of thanks must go to Jon :thumbsup: for giving (enabling) me with lots of Suisin info, although this deal came through the new Suisin rep in Oz. (http://www.ironchefknives.com.au/) Gotta try supporting local business who is not putting too hefty price tag on knives.

That image icons works with external url; in the dialog, you will have to paste in a full url i.e. http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/4509/pict0115w.jpg, then it will show up a [ IMG ]http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/4509/pict0115w.jpg[ /IMG ] in message editing dialog.

@schanop, very nice takobiki. My Yanagiba is from Suisins shiro-niko line and I've been extremely happy with it.
@tkern, I upload to Photobucket and copy/paste the link into the post. Hope that helps, I wanna see that Kono!
Congrats on the new knives fellas.

Cuts better than it looks.
