How do you like that handle, Rick? Heavy?

The knife weighs in right at 250 grams, so it is no lightweight, but it doesn't feel like a heavy knife. The balance point is about an inch ahead of the ferrule. The handle looks as if it might be unwieldy, but it isn't. I place it on par with the Western handle I have from Mert.

I was gonna ask how the handle was. Sorta looks like a cross between Mert's and a Rader.

The initial handle was a burnt chestnut with a plastic ferule.
To be honest I expected the balance point to move more. 171g vs 159g.

The main thing is it looks so much better

Was a couple of months for me as well. Maybe 6-7. Fit and finish is outstanding. Didn't have time to really cut with it, aside from some Virgin paper.

Knife is a looker for sure, love it. Very happy that Ian kept digging to find the Type of Ironwood I liked!

I wanted a petty with a slightly flatter profile and longer edge retention than my R2/SG2 petty&parer (cutting a lot of ginger and turmeric seems pretty tough on the edge as the peel is kinda sandy); this one works well so far. The hō and Buffalo horn handle is very nice and I plan to keep it.

Also got some Kagayaki stainless shears. Very similar to my Tojiro (they almost fit together too) but allow more of your hand inside the handles and are a bit longer:

Is that a sukenari shape just zdp blank- I almost bought the same knife last week- I read it as a different knife shaper using sukenari steel.

Love to know how it performs - think I might have to pull the trigger anyway!

I had asked Koki about how it compared to the Sukenari hairline / Kasumi series and afaik they are the same knife and both are made by Sukenari.


We request Sukenari to do the forging and special sharpening process on Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan ZDP-189 Clad Wa Series knives. So far, the knives are having great reputation and many customers are impressed with the quality and cutting performance.

F&F is really good, nicely polished choil and spine; the handle is the same as a number of Sukenari knives I had before. The only other difference is the box and the kanji.

It has the different kanji on the right side, but the ZDP-189 stamp/engraving is the same, as well as 火造 “Japanese Traditional Hammer Forging” which Sukenari uses on some other knives (Fūrinkazan on top, Sukenari on bottom)
32390
32391

On the sukneari ZDP-189 hairline I believe they use 超鋼 "super steel" on the left side but have "ZDP-189" on the right with Sukenari kanji

I like the knife so far, OOTB edge is decent but could be improved. I was initially eyeing the actual sukenari Damascus version (Koki was hoping to get during the summer, didn't want to order 2go) but decided that for the use this petty will see a non-Damascus version is appropriate (and quite a bit less expensive too). I think it (mine anyways) is closer to 155mm heel to tip as with other Sukenari knives being measured from the ferrule to tip

This knife looks great. Out of curiosity, have you sharpened it yet? I've suddenly become very interested in that knife, but I'm wondering if that steel at such a high hardness is going to be difficult to sharpen. This may be a question for the sharpening forum.

Well you have to search hard sometimes.

there is always some luck involved to find such a treasure and know that it is a treasure that needs to be liftet for 10-20 bucks ;))...


And i would go with the Xerxes Laser, if you order one.. at the moment some of the best knifes you can get from germany and developed with a cook and knife maniacs.
If i dondt have so many this would be my last one... i tried all of his knifes on a PA and they are very good (especially the 1.2442 steel is awesome)

If i dondt have so many this would be my last one... i tried all of his knifes on a PA and they are very good (especially the 1.2442 steel is awesome)


As one of the certain knife maniacs I agree :plus1: Pretty excited to see the review. 1.2442 is great. But SC125 isn't bad either :D

Well if its a super uber unicorn, then it could be interesting for others to ;9
Jannis makes excellent knifes and the prices are also very good for what you get.

Hi Ruso!
well it might be awesome and it looks awesome.. but i dondt really need another Gyuto ;)
i finally tuned the handle of my Akifusa oriental PM and now i am happy.
The handle looks awesome of the Chiku, but ebony handles are all to heavy for me since i like zerogravity self floating Lasers.
Actually i spend so much cash on knifes that i dondt use, so other stuff first (after spending also to much cash on brick size Suitas.. ehm enough Knife stuff ;) )


Well here are my "Gyutos" and thats ally i need ;)
-210mm Akifusa SRS-15 with new handle (tuned it today because EM soccer was so boring that i did something more useful)
-220mm Dalman AEB-L Gyutohiki
-240mm Hinoura AS Suji with a Handle from a Shiro Kamo Kenyo and it had a shinogi line but i gave it a workhorse grind and now it rocks

hiho @brainsausage!

here are all the pictures
http://imgur.com/a/ibDlP

And for the story behind it:
The EM Soccer match last night was so boring that i decided to pimp up a handle.
i had some handles that were suitable for 300mm two handed swords, so i thought "well they are useless, so why not give it a try and check out what i can do with sandpaper"

well i sued a marble plate put a hand vacuum cleaner next to it and did some scrubbing (i have no beltgrinder)
.. all right.. well after removing some 2mm at the sides i thought "well lets cut the handle, its much to long...!" but not just a normal cut.. a psychedelic super ergonomic cut that works awesome with my hyper pinchgrip would be nice... well and why not remove all edgedes that usuall collide wit my arm when i am holding it in super pinchgrip..

soo its something like the bauhaus "form follows function" idea and turned out really nice...
well actually i had some worst case stuff.. there was a hole after cutting the handle and also the weight ratio was wrecked, because the blade had to much weight on the front and was out of balance..

soo i thought "skrew it... and lets put some weight in the back into that hole" so i put a srek in and baemm headshot... its perfect now.. well it looks ugly, but i like it..
i guess ill cut the srew and put some plaster with woodpoweder on it.. or get me a cooler skew ;)))


so thats the story!

Likely the stone I was using (I didn't have my stones with me) but that steel is stubborn.

Krassi
07-01-2016, 10:48 AM
ehmm sorry for some antiautocorrection mistakes

it should be spelled: ...i "used a marble plate" and not actually sued it for 1million dollars or something else.... and i put a skrew in the handle and not a klingon srek ;)

-Also amazing to see "the Knechter"("the enslaver") and the other Zombiapocalyse survival tools from sharpchef ;)))
-And i have never seen an Ashi boning knife and Ashis with white handles!!!! very cool!!! Mitsuaki rocks!
-And when i listed my Gyutos, i got an angry call from my Ashi 210mm Gyuto because i forgot to mention it ;)) thats why i have enough gyutos if i even foget my favorit ones.


well i havent sharpend it before but this will be done on weekend..
i will completle wreck that mirror like finish and give the flanks as much suita power as possible.

i dondt think it will be much trouble because its still very sharp.. my SG2 Kotetsus are also no problems ( is use JNS1000, JNS Red Aoto, JNS 6000, Godemperor Ohiro Shiro Suita Aka Renge , and melon green Ohira Shiro Suita Ao Renge, and maybe if its stil not enogh a small but good nakayama kiita)
I am more stubborn than steel, so it will work ;)

07-02-2016, 11:01 AM
Thanks YG420! ;)
Well of course the that one in the picture i posted,
Its a ohira shiro suita aka renge (looks also like it has some ao renge too, it has yellow colors, super harmless kesuji).. it was actually "the dream Ohira" that i was looking for from the beginning and actually the last natural stone i bought and also the last one i will ever buy.
I got it fully 100%risk from a yahoo jp auction.. it was a collectors item of someones father that passed away.. when i saw it i knew "thats the one i was looking for" ;) .. i thing it was one of the highlights of his collection. and i got it insanly cheap.

This stone is mindblowing, it is the best stone i have ever tried (very fast, instant black swarf, very smooth feedback, i would give it a 3,5/5 for hardness but its also very fine, it has a clean perfect surface with micro holes but no visible su, the kesuji is harmless and will get more after around 16mm.. well i guess i am dead before i wear down the stone to that point ;) )

well and to complete the dynamic duo (like batman and robin) i have another Ohira Suita.. its one of the unique Watanabe melon green ao Renge Ohira Shiro Suitas with no Kesuji no visible su and its a bit harder, also cutting like a chainsaw but fine like a very good nakayama..

the others are also nice with their special features.. the maruo yama is softer than the ohiras but also very fine, has lots of namazu and one of the funkiest line patterns i have seen (was a collectors stone from mr Horie from the german japan-messer-shop)
that aircraftcarrier is from 330mate (and i dondt regret it!! ;) ) and is actually awesome too.. had not much chance to fully test it..

puh lots of stone gibberish ;) hope that answers your question ;))
i also got some smaller ones http://imgur.com/a/B69XO + a small but excellent nakayama kiita that cuts like a suita.

best regards! Daniel

Don't think any are for sale, but I know who to go to if they are. Yeah that ferrule was quite the surprise, really interesting for sure.

The 3 Katos from japan arrived without boxes which I thought was interesting.

The first 240mm with the black ferrule was hand delivered by Kato-san himself to the vendor I purchased it from and is probably my favorite cutter.

I think his 2016 philosophy is to step away from truly custom work for now and go with what he wants to forge (1 or multiple pieces) offer them for sale but occasionally allow for a level of customization (handle, wood, etc.) .... Here is his updated sales concept thread

Can't say much that'll be useful; the knife was a tester and my private feedback will probably be taken into account when more are made in the future.

I think the point of the tester was to take a shot in the dark and see how far from the mark it was. For me, it was a bit heavy for the size, the handle a bit long/narrow and too light, and with the thickness at the top of the hollow, it could occasionally wedge in very tall ingredients. However, it had excellent separation, a pretty smooth cutting geometry in most ingredients, seemed to be hardened and tempered pretty well with limited damage from an abuse test, and was generally fun to use.

Since this is not a review and isn't in the reviews section, I will spare my recommendations, but they should be intuited easily enough from what I provided above. I also have preferences about size and edge curve, but those are personal and probably irrelevant to others.

As part of my feedback to Robin, I tried to provide comparisons with other knives and such. Due to quality and technique problems and a desire to not be ridiculed, I keep such things private, but I'll share one where a "problem" was encountered, but the knife otherwise performed very well:

This isn't a buy, more of a "find", but it's the latest knife I've obtained.

When I moved into my (furnished) apartment, this was sitting in the top draw. Asked my landlord about it, and he said "Well it's not one of mine, the previous (Chinese) tenants must have left it here" - So he said it's mine now.

Having never owned/used Asian style knives before, i've always shied away from them as I use my knifes left-handed (even though i'm right handed) and was under the impression that most Asian knives had to be bought especially right or left handed. Either way, this one seems to have a symmetrical handle so i'm finding it pretty useful. I have no idea if it's any good metal wise, but it seems to sharpen up OK.

http://i.imgur.com/f0K6iZR.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/YQGHAuu.jpg

Either way, I use it quite a lot. It's replaced some of the things that I used to use exclusively my cooks knife for...

The King of suitas

Exactly :bliss:

Really like the stone (former go-to-Suita was a nice Ohira Renge Suita about Lvl 3,5) but the Okudo is a little bit faster (has a lot of su...) and leaves a bit nicer kasumi finish.

But they complement each other quite well.

Mostly camping. Wanted to try one to see how it compares to my small hatchet.



I'd like to see what else you're packing in that scabbard/sheath.
It's Karda and Chakmak. Karda is a small "paring" type of knife and Chakmak is kind of a steel to align the edge. This is a fairly low end Khukri, so this two utensils are real POS.


What's the tooth for?
AFAIK it's not really known. Most people are leaning toward religious meaning of a sort. Also, since Khukri is differentially harden, some people say this provides a "relief" to the edge on hard impact what ever it means.


Overall its a cool toy, splits apples and smashes garlic with lots of fun. :P

Does cut quite well. Obviously it's more like a workhorse than a laser and in the back part of the blade it's quite thick but overall it gets quite a lot thinner towards the tip and works quite nicely if you like that sort of workhorse knives. Food Release is very good. Compared to my 240 Kato Workhorse Gyuto, the Gyuto is a little bit better of a cutter.

It does however cut amazingly. The handle is a bit clunky but I do have big mitts so it so far is ok. Maybe the shoulders at the front of handle could be eased a bit. Early days but uber pleased!

Dear forum,

after reading this (http://taffel.se/blog/testa-kinesisk-kockkniv) fine article (in Swedish) I felt ready to try the cleaver experience, and ordered the recommented cai dao –SmartWife Carbon Steel Cleaver (but labeled as »For frend daughter relatives cutting tool professional chef knives carbon steel Mulberry knife kitchen knife cook knife SDH0015«) – from here (http://de.aliexpress.com/item/For-frend-daughter-relatives-cutting-tool-professional-chef-knives-carbon-steel-Mulberry-knife-kitchen-knife-cook/32246458361.html?isOrigTitle=true)

It arrived some three weeks later. I gave the handle a treatment with unboiled flaxseed oil, and off I was.

Beein a cleaver beginner, I cannot make any pro comments, but initially I like the feel, the lightness and thinness of the blade. It chops nicely, sharpens easily to very high sharpness.

Here are some impressions:

Love the 3 pack DaveB!

I've been on a no knife diet for a bit due to having a new custom on the way...that said, I've been bugging James about getting some KU Tanakas and it finally happened. This one is 240 x 53 and seems to be the same blue 2 Tanaka without the reactivity of the damascus...can't seem to not have a Tanaka in the mix and really stand by the argument that these may be some of the best knives at any price point. Likely getting the burnt chestnut from my Kochi but the D shape is from a Watanabe and may also get the nod?

Kurosaki R2 western 240mm. The thing is, blade was bent during transportation...
I just noticed it after posting that picture of the handle here. I'm so crushed, it's so awesome otherwise. :(

James told me that he'll give full refund and pay the shipping back to him fully. So excellent service from his side, the blade was packaged as good as possible. But it must have been something heavy that hit the package to bent the blade.

I hope I can get similar knife in the future. It's so awesome!

My new knife : Mighty mono from Will 190mm, with Yellow box/wenge and black horn.
I asked him about this knife and here the answer :
" I named them the Mighty Mono, because of their compact size and high performance even on larger vegetable like squash surprised me for a smaller knife."

steel carbon 01, special heat treatment allowing a very edge stable 64/65hrc.
Lots of love goes into these little knives to ensure the bevels offer a perfect balance on cutting performance and release. The lower bevels are finished entirely with stones then blended so its as thin and even as can be.
Specifications on this one.
Blade length - 190-200mm
height 48-50mm
Spine taper 4mm entering handle tapering to 1mm 10mm behind tip.
Geometry is a slightly concave upper bevel tapering down to about 1.8mm at the top of the lower bevel, lower bevel is compound/convex.

Thanks! I've been wanting a 240 WH for some time, now I just need a standard (and a kikuryu lol :wink: )

The shig from JWW would have actually ended up costing more with shipping and ancillary fees coming to Canada, so I always have to consider the actual costs and not just the the selling price.

I figure shigs are getting rarer and rarer… soon enough they'll be difficult to come by and priced like hattori KD, so I pulled the trigger.

@tanner yea, I figured shipping a knife from half way across the globe would be cheaper than shipping from the country right below you lol.

@limpet nice pickups! I'm diggin my munetoshis other than the reactivity part, but been wondering what the differences are with the toshi and wakuis.

Picked up a few knives I have been interested in. My collection isn't very large, I have just a handful of knives.

The first is a Kanehiro 165mm Nakiri in AS with a custom handle. The handle really stuck out to me and I didn't have a nakiri yet so I pulled the trigger. I've used it a few times over the last few weeks so a small amount of patina can be seen near the edge. It's amazing how easily veggie prep work becomes. All of the sudden I like cutting potatoes a whole lot more.

Second knife is a Takeda Hamono 170mm Santoku in AS as well. I got this one on ebay and I'm really liking it so far. It's got height to it for good knuckle clearance as well. The handle is awesome as well. Some might feel it's on the small side, but I think it fits the knife well.

Lastly is a JKI Gesshin stainless 150mm Honesuki. I do a fair amount of chicken butchery since I'm all about saving money and doing it myself usually saves a few bucks. I haven't used this one yet, but I'll be using it this week sometime I would imagine.

Thanks to a few forum members, I was able to pick up some knives I've been after for a while.

First is a Devin ITK 240 (more like 260) aeb-L, nice, solid feeling knife, everything is smooth and the f&f is awesome. Feels real good in hand, but I have a feeling this may be a bit too big for me...also, theres a #2 stamped on the backside that i forgot to take pictures of and was wondering if anyone has any insight on what that may mean?

Next is a standard Kato 240 gyuto. I can already tell i'm gona love this knife. The standards seem to come in a bit undersized while the workhorses come in oversized.

Also picked up a 210 Toyama gyuto which came with the tip a little bit rounded, but I think after a sharpening or two it should be good.

And lastly is an Itinomonnn stainless 210. I'm really, really digging this knife. Doesn't wedge on anything and has nice weight to it as well as good food release. I've been looking for a knife where I don't need to pamper like carbons and this one fits the bill. Fun little knife.

Slow clap.

That's pretty much gyuto perfection there.

Toyama should be able to take a beating, try doing a ferric chloride etch. The 270 I tried had the best grind of anything I've ever used, even better than my Takeda that I custom modified to my preferences.

Ive heard great things about the toyama so cant wait to test it out. I've never etched a knife, but if anything I may bring it to Jon along with some other knives and see what he can do. Or I can mess with it first and have him fix my mistakes lol.

Just make a batch of french onion soup, or caramalize a bunch of onions, and wipe with a damp rag every other half an onion. That's all it should take for the Toyama. It's takes a patina pretty quick IME.

Thanks for the tip! I'm hoping it's not as reactive as my munetoshi!

i like cutting an entire case of roma tomatoes with new knife, it makes it really dark and looks badass with a deep layer of protective patina.
