good for me :D they do, otherwise i wouldnīt get this nice packet from Maxim :D

i have done a lot of buisness with Maxim and as always, great customer service and a polite dealer.

here are some pictures of the latest things i have recived from him, i recived his custom made Sayas yesterday, they do look good IRL.

and som rehandles he was kind to do for me as a service, as some of you remeber we had a sharpening class back in february with a great sucess, i have talked with Maxim and we are trying to get another one in late June og beginning of July, Maxim will announce the exact date.

i always thought that chefs had the biggest tool in a restaurant with our 270mm-300mm slicers, but my GF is working as a waitress and she use this tool to open Champagne bottles :D

can i use fingerstones on that beast? :D

DK - Looks like Yosihide deba. How do you like this knife? I have the small yanigiba and it is one of my favorite knives.

Atagoyama would be a very cool stone to have, DK Chef :-) May be get your GF a tuna sword for knocking off the champagne bottle tip.

hey Seth, yes thatīs right, i got one of those 4 knives Maxim recived, so you got the Yanagi :D cool. if that wasnīt spoken for i might have gone for that one to. hope he gets more of them, the Deba is great, only used it at home, soon i will give the microbevel a test and try it out at work. but impression of the knife is great so far. good smal Deba.

It is a cool stone, a bit hard stone for a natural newbie like me :D but it gives the knives a great finish, easy to work with and together with a Nagura it makes wonders, the Ohira Renge Suita is much better than expected i have to say, now after a couple of hour with it, itīs amazing, with or without Nagura, easy slurry and good responds to the knives, Yoshikane and Shigefusa so far. i will post when my finish is better :D and my fingerstones will collaborate with me, (might have something to do with my patience :D) im not a patience guy.

great advice for a knife to my GF Schanop :) always easier to bring home new stuff if you convince the GF is for her.

Now I know who got that ko deba. If hadn't had a hide ko deba on my way when Maskim posted about yosihide, I would have been even more mad missing out this little one. Been doing a lot more smaller fish nowadays, a ko deba and a shig mioroshi have been great workers. I wonder who got that yosihide funy.

:angry2: now I know who has got that yosihide funny and shige single bevel santoku ...




Enjoy them, cool tools.

Single beveled Santoku is really something. I just like it a lot, thickness is same as regular Santoku but edge is just crazy thin.
