Not exactly a new buy, but this 165mm Shig Nakiri was bought from Maxim about a year ago and recently rehandled by Stefan with some finishing touches by Dave. The D shape was a bit of a challenge for Stefan, but he did a great job. The handle is Wild Almond Burl along with an ivory spacer and a Blackwood ferrule. My sincere thanks to Stefan and Dave for their craftsmanship.

Thanks for the pictures, Myron, it does look nice. I had free-handed that one, and by the time I had the shape where I wanted it, it was a little slimmer than I intended, but it looks like the size is working out allright after all. Have fun with it,

Here's a new knife made by an American blade smith named Salem Straub. I first learned of his work through another forum and admired not only his craftsmanship but also his philosophy on knife making. He only makes the type of blades that personally interest him, knives that inspire him to take his craft to the next level, which means he typically doesn't taken commissions. I happened to catch him at the right time since he was having fun forging chef knives. I had seen a design of his that caught my eye, and I had seen some of his other work specifically with W2 and hamons. I contacted Mr. Straub and found out he was still very much interested in making gyutos so I told him to make one for me. I let him choose all of the options, steel, handle materials and finish, I had only requested a french profile.

Here's the result
W2 with hamon
Black Ash burl handle with Micarta bolster
Speaking from an aesthetic point of view, the knife's craftsmanship is 100% spot on. I have not had a chance to use the knife yet so function is still up in the air, and the handle requires a very minor adjustment to my style of pinch grip, which might not effect others.

Stereo.Pete, I really liked that one when I saw it over yonder. Salem's work definitely has a look unique to him. And I really like the black ash burl, my first comissioned knife had that on it. I"ll be interested to see how you like it when you put it to use. Also, I'd like to see a pic in the pinch grip, and what adjustments you had to make.

That's interesting enough that I'd love to try one (especially since my super thinned out Z-K is my go to knife most days). The low hamon at the heel suggests that it ain't gonna last 20 years, though.

This is true, I noticed the very same thing with the hamon. I had the chance to use it last night for some quick prep, chopped some herbs, garlic and shallot and she did just fine. I'm interested to try it on some larger root vegetables to see if she wedges or not as well as how food sticks.

I only wanted to compare the Kiritsuke and Ginsanko ... just to help me decide which one to purchase ... I should never, ever have held both of them ... I couldn't decide ... Jon tried to help/guide/let me know I could come back/etc. ... it didn't work! =;-)

In hindsight they are very complimentary and absolutely no regrets! As for the $$, oh well - my plan is to have them buried with me! At an undisclosed location of course judging by some of the KKF members posts ... LOL

Seattle was a hoot this weekend. Ended up with a red handled Wilburn Chefs for myself, a D handled dami Wilburn for my wife and a 320mm Suji from Marko. More pics and descriptions to come but here's a shot of the 3.

My latest acquisition: A Tetsuhiro 210mm gyuto. Blue#2 in a stainless steel cladding, Micarta handles. I like how the cladding becomes more and more frosted as it approaches the border to the core. Btw the core is mirror polished, not dark as it appears in the pic.

I can't remember seeing a Tetsuhiro on here before ... what is the KKF's opinion on them?

Lucky you. Besides the fact that it's beautiful, it just looks so comfortable and made for cutting not just a piece of art. It's one of those knives that I just can't stop looking at. The handle and blade look so right together. I don't think I've ever seen a Shig etched like that either. I'm very envious!

I highly recommend William Catchside's custom work. I've been wanting one for some time and finally was able grab this guy. Got some heft to it (there's something to be said about feeling what you pay for), cuts like a dream and is just dead sexy. I repolished and re-etched it and just gotta say, f me. What a great way to treat myself!

Tom, I've actually been eye-humping this knife ever since I first saw it. One of the most stunning knives I've ever seen. His D-handle is absolutely perfect for my hand.
Antonio, the profile of Wills blade on this one is super flexible in nature of what I do. The tip is great for detail work and fine mince, and the belly/heel is awesome for the more grunt work. Balance and weight feel tailored to my personal needs. I simply want to find a sheath and strap this bad boy to my hip to have at as part of my uniform now.

I think maybe Schanop started it all, but now Rami is leading the pack ( with assistance from Von Blewitt, Jimbob, etc :)

I remember JKerr used to have a lot of cool cleavers. He even had a Pierre custom one. :)

Wow. I have been on Rader's list for 1.5 years and I have been thinking of a very similar set. I even asked him about a bird's beak parer. My desire is for a four-knife set of paring knives, but this is pretty damn close to what I want. Bravo sir.

All this talk of cimiters and scimitars, so I went to the 'Bay and got one. A Dexter 32910 10” cimiter. Nicer than I expected. The rosewood handle is in very good shape. As expected, it arrived with no edge to speak of, but that's easily remedied.

I actually really prefer shorter blades. Granted I just cook for myself or a few others, but they do well with single veg. Great looking knives. Looks like Carter has started to offer handles that don't need replacing. Not sure how I feel about that, as they were something that was fun to put something custom on.

Referring to the Carter and Shig.

After first long consideration what knife to get, than after deciding that it is going to be a Carter funayuki - I have with some luck and patience picked up this one yesterday. 167mm Heel to tip, 47mm height at the heel, blade thickness of 1.6mm half way towards the tip, weight 114g.

And while I know some may feel differently - I love the way the handle looks (and feels).

Nice catch. Mine is pretty close to yours; 170mm, 1.2mm at the stamp according to the site, and a bit flatter with a bit more angular tip...Mine seems a bit more santoku/bunka, and yours more funayuki/gyuto style. I'm a little surprised yours is almost 20g lighter than mine though.

I think I'm going to like mine.

Nice Schanop!!! That's one of my unicorn knives right there.

How long is it - 270?

So, how did this happen? Did you sell off two other Shig's to fund this one? Was this a custom order? What was the lead time? Or... did you trade two other Shig's for this one f/ another owner?

Regardless, it's a beauty. Very envious. :thumbsup:

06-15-2014, 11:39 PM
It is 240mm, mpukas.

Huw got both of my two other Shigefusa gyutos and he holds on to yo-kasumi, and wa-kitaeji went to Rami.

This all happened before my luck struck stumbling upon this beauty from François Xavier of lapassiondescouteaux.fr (http://lapassiondescouteaux.fr) .

BTW, if the picture and weight is true, this one probably is a 270 with hand engraved kanji. http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/niigatabussan/item/35061/

I love my 240mm + Gyuto's, but I'm with you, I also love a shorter blade for quick tasks and the such.

The 2 blades you have here specifically are on my short list to round out my collection over the next year or so, along with a stainless paring knife like an Ealy or Adam Marr.

Just to confirm, your Shig is the Kasumi right?

These are really nice man, congrats.

I love my 240mm + Gyuto's, but I'm with you, I also love a shorter blade for quick tasks and the such.

The 2 blades you have here specifically are on my short list to round out my collection over the next year or so, along with a stainless paring knife like an Ealy or Adam Marr.

Just to confirm, your Shig is the Kasumi right?

These are really nice man, congrats.
Thanks! Yeah, the Shigefusa is the kasumi model. I think the kitaeji models are cool, but it's quite a premium to pay. I was leaning toward a 165mm kurouchi santoku originally, but I think I'm going to like the 180 gyuto. My collection is really drifting to the 160-180mm range and in my kitchen, the size is almost perfect. I think a 210mm is still useful to me for cabbage and other things that need a bit more edge, but a 180 is just more maneuverable and comfortable in my kitchen for my modest cooking output.

It's raining shigs in down under .. It was painful to not have a shig gyuto after seeing so many threads about it .Well after maxims discount I grabbed a Kasumi 270 gyuto , now I get to talk about the clouds on the cladding or complain about the reactivity now :)
On a side note the handle doesn't seem to be mounted as well as 210 mioroshi deba I had briefly , but I can live with that

I don't actually care for the Damascus style design, but I am loving the Nakiri a LOT. I stared at some sliced carrots today because the cross section looks so gorgeous (I should take a picture of that). I also love the orange handle on the Korin/Suisin ^^;
