My 300 Suisin Shiro-Hayate made short work of some homemade pastrami, I wonder what knife they use at Katz's?

That's a beautiful knife. Have you sharpened it yet?

No, not yet. When it is time I am sending it to Dave. You can tell by the thin slices of pastrami that it is still razor sharp. I was told the white would hold an edge longer. It is not a knife I use every day, I pull it out when I need something really sharp or taking some nice food pictures. I have had it for 4 years now. The first year I was afraid to use it and mess up the finish, but I got over it and am using it more now.

Thanks! That cutting board was a steal, it was like 20 bucks at an Asian market (of course that was 10 years ago).

I think it is Tamarind, but I am not for sure.

Great post as always, I am getting very serious about purchasing my first single bevel and these posts are really edging me on.

Crap knives, if I remember correctly from the few times I've been.

From the patina it looks like I am only using half my knife...

Nice! Hayate in white #1 isn't too common.
