Should arrive to me next week.
Someone might recognize this small beauty. If zombie apocalypse ever occurs, this is the knife I'm taking with me :pirate1:
More info and pics when I get the knife. :viking:

And that maumasi is amazing!

Thanks for the comments--credit goes to Mareko Maumasi. And it's a good cutter, too (220mm.) About to go desecrate some veggies with it now.

Some new knives…

I got the shig Kasumi 210 wa-gyuto that came out last week :knife: :

I've been offline the past few days reading about J-nats and pocket knives. I think I've been bitten by the J-nat bug so the shig will probably have to go to make room.


Not a kitchen knife, but still a knife:

Buck marksman 830 in 154CM steel. I'm honestly surprised this was sold in Canada… I guess since it's not assisted opening it's okay, but damn it's petty smooth.

What's the heel height on that shig and what kind of Jnats you looking at?

aboynamedsuita
08-05-2016, 10:23 PM
Looks to be 47ish… I had a really odd one last year (Miho could comment on it) which was like 50-something.

Jnats I'm looking into Ohira Suita, followed by Aoto and/or Ozuku Asagi. Mostly want to stick to finishers, but still researching

Yea I was told this as well, I'll probably hold off on using for awhile if I do get one, just wanted something ultra fine "just becasue"

I pulled the trigger on an Ohira Suita from JNS just now… I got A965 http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com/ohira-range-suita-lv-3-5-a965/?setCurrencyId=3

The one I was eyeing all week and even earlier today (A959 http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com/ohira-range-suita-lv-3-5-a959/?setCurrencyId=3) was sold out… wonder who got it :nunchucks:

That said some other members who helped enable guide me with the purchase also mentioned A965 looked good.

I much prefer the a965. It's a more regular shape all the way through. You will really appreciate the thickness due to the feeling of stability and density it gives. Ohira suitas are incredible. You will love it.

The top and bottom ones are new. The one in the middle is just an older 165mm nakiri for comparison. The small one is 135mm, 110g, unknown high carbon steel, and cheap. The big one is 210mm, 235g, blue #2, and supposed to be HRC62-63.

Wow, yours is a beast! Several other members also said the A965 was a good choice… as a relative noob to jnats it's easy to get caught up in looking at the lines, colors, etc. Someone mentioned that of their multiple Ohira Suitas their favourite is the one that has the most lines, rust spots, etc.

This is my new baby from Chadd Smith, of Tristone Blacksmithing in Australia. So glad to see more Australian kitchen knife makers on the scene.He just won the 'best kitchen knife' category, at the recent Sydney Knife Show.

Specs :

240mm blade
55 mm heel height
Grind is convex, asymmetric for right-hander
208g weight
Width of spine at heel 2.8mm
Half-way down the blade 2.01mm
10mm from tip 0.56mm
Steel is RWL34 super stainless at 63-64HRC
Gabon ebony saya with felt lining, for a friction fit and prevent scuffing of blade and bolster

Handle :

D-shape
Mirror polished 314 stainless bolster and spacers
Faux ivory ferrule
Pink dyed wood (cannot remember the species)

The blade is mirror polished to the highest extend, apparently RWL34 is one of the best steel for it, so I thought why not. I am currently on holiday and cannot comment too much on the steel and edge retention yet, will update in the future, when I am back working.

I did the usual test on onions, potatoes, carrots, and the performance put a grin on my face. Knife is a middle weight and has nice forward heft, as I specified to the maker. This blade is sporting the latest grind from the maker, with improved separation and ease of cutting. Tip did horizontal cut on onions nicely, some stiction on potatoes(probably due to the mirror finish) and carrots cut cleanly with no breaking.

Handle is tapered at the front and very comfy. As for f&f, I kept on joking to maker that it looked like a factory made knife, it was that flawless and consistent.

Lastly, please enjoy the pics, taken with my Iphone and mediocre photo taking skill.

I did the usual test on onions, potatoes, carrots, and the performance put a grin on my face. Knife is a middle weight and has nice forward heft, as I specified to the maker. This blade is sporting the latest grind from the maker, with improved separation and ease of cutting. Tip did horizontal cut on onions nicely, some stiction on potatoes(probably due to the mirror finish) and carrots cut cleanly with no breaking.

Handle is tapered at the front and very comfy. As for f&f, I kept on joking to maker that it looked like a factory made knife, it was that flawless and consistent.

Lastly, please enjoy the pics, taken with my Iphone and mediocre photo taking skill.

Any tips on maintaining this finish?

Finish should hold up just fine, as long as you don't cut anything with it:biggrin:

Monosteel 1.2210, Curly maple, integral bolster w/hidden tang. Whatever the level of sanding/refinishing is on the wood...it just feels really nice gripping it. I was added to the list about 3 months ago, and the knife would have come to me somewhat sooner, but there was a holdup in the curly maple supply for a bit.

Masamoto KS 240 that I picked up on BST came in the mail on Thursday. Immediately put an edge on it and had a go at an onion.
Can see why so many people like this knife and it's profile. An exercise in minimalist no BS design. Just enough height for knuckle clearance, thick enough spine to minimize flex, thin tip section for detail work, long flat section at the heel and a very gradual transition to the belly. It feels nimble, more like a 210mm knife then a 240mm.
Panda puts it much more succinctly, ",,,,,,,Badass Knife"
This one's a keeper.

Thanks to easy13 for the great transaction.Condition of knife was as described. Prompt responses to pms, and he shipped the knife as soon as payment cleared.
Would not hesitate to deal with him again.

Thanks to easy13 for the great transaction.

No problem, pleasure dealing with ya.

With one going out, new one came in - 240 Kamo R2, Off work, only cooked a home dinner so far - Bolognese w/ plenty of brunoise on the mirepoix and a bunch of Swiss Chard from the farm on the side. So far so good, F&F solid, sick grind, super thin at edge and bulks up, tip real nice to work with. No microchipping as sometimes expected from out the box super thin blade, little bit of micro bending, nothing a strop couldn't correct, edge still ripping after dinner (be it small scale production)

It certainly looks like the Kasumi Munetoshi. But I think from the performance reviews I've read under the various threads it couldn't be more different. I might even see if I can buy a rutabaga somewhere to see if I can actually get it to wedge on something.

Yea I'm new to jnats, gotta start somewhere. I'll follow the lines when I lacquer it. I think they're fracture planes as they seem perpendicular to the strata layers, that have filled with minerals. Sorta like kimberlite. Man I wish I paid more attention in university geology.

I had one of these, got it from Koki. All I can say is I freaking loved it. F&F and steel was far better than the masahiro's and Kanahide (cktg). SLD I believe. I have not tried Jon's or bernal's so I cannot

08-21-2016, 03:10 AM
Im jusg saying i wouldnt be surprised if hiromoto either did what jon did (aesthetic fixups primarily on an oem knife) or perhaps theg are old stock when hiromoto had a contract to produce these oem cheapey butchery knives

Anyway the knife feels good in the hand and looks good (got the signature wonky hiromoto machine finishing but its quite a high grit finish so hard to notice). Stock saya is almosg friction fit though and im suspicious its a measurable amount thicker than 2.5mm on the spine. Tho i am surprised how thin behind the edge it seems to be. Hope it holds up.

i got me on impulse a "maybe Aizu Sharpening stone" from japanese auction stuff and thought.. "well if i send me a 2kilo brick package with ems i can send me more small stuff with this".. and i found this one

http://i.imgur.com/aITOsm6.jpg

-it is made of "i dondt know steel" with a crazy awesome looking bolster and 157mm blade and well looks a bit like a boning knife/ kiritsuke or honesuki.. actually something like this a bit bigger will be also my new custom german xerxes sc125 petty of doom ;) with - i dondtknowbutpleasesupercoolwood and nice super bright bolster of cow!.. super cheap and same cool authentic style like my 80-90 year old solingen carbon steel knifes (i got many J.A.Henckels Carbon pre ww2 knifes and they are all lovely! ;) )

Got my first Heiji in the post this week, after a nice 5 months wait!
240 carbon gyuto (think it's more like 250 however). Pretty rustic f&f, but that doesn't bother me, happy to relieve spine and choir, and polish up the blade. Handle is nice and fits well.
What a beast though! Was obviously expecting a hefty knife, but took me by surprise at first, however the size and weight grew quite comfortable pretty quickly. Only used at home to prepare dinner - a couple onions, two carrots, two fennel, one leek, and whilst there weren't any wedging issues, it wasn't the easiest through some of the ingredients, when cutting through the whole diameter of the leek for example. Tip went nicely through the onion.
Despite the minimal usage, the edge is covered in micro serrations and chips! I had expected this however from reading previous posts on here, and would have taken it to the stones beforehand had they not all been at work.
Looking forward to breaking her in properly in a busy day in the kitchen tomorrow :bat:

I had a Tanaka Blue #2 Santoku but wanted a Gyuto,also. I also ordered a Fujiwara Teruyasu at about the same time. Amazingly they arrived much faster than I expected and also at the same time. Oh, happy day for me! The Tanaka is about normal, needs a little work on the handle to match the ferrule, needs some work on the edge and could use a little softening around the spine and choil. The TF, well, I love it, looks good, feels good and is screamin' sharp.

Not really a knife buy this time. But I finished the mag strip from the wood piece that was seen in my latest pics. Well actually there is my last 3 knife buys in that pic, Raquin monster suji, Dalman gyuto and catcheside mighty gyuto.

Its made from Bolivian Rosewood, and has place for 11 knives. Magnets go in 2 different rows. Its little bit stronger than necessary, but Id rather make it like that, than to risk coming home and finding some of my knives destroyed on the floor. I could have made it fit few more knives, but decided to limit it to 11, thats how many knives I can keep at home + work kit (which has space for 7 knives) ofcourse. :angel2: So few more knive buys ahead, before I have to start selling.

Its actually staying in my living room atm, until we renovate our kitchen in the coming winter. Cant wait that to happen! :spin chair:

My first left handed bread knife ! Wife gave me grief about customs on another ****ing knife, but she can't cut the crusts of two pb and j's simultaneously. So it's probably just envy rearing its ugly head http://i328.photobucket.com/albums/l334/Jeff_Renouf/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpszen36ufq.jpeg (http://s328.photobucket.com/user/Jeff_Renouf/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpszen36ufq.jpeg.html)

Yep, it is hot off the press. And strangely, it was a series of unfortunate events that led to this knife coming into my possession. But in the end, it all worked out.

i like it alot so far, ootb sharpness was decent, gave it a quick loaded strop and its quite good. This one is about 53mm at the heel and maybe about 230mm length. Feels great in the hand and is nice to not have reactions with fruits. Gonna have to cook a nice soup to get a better feel with the denser stuff. Have not found the need to take to the stones yet.

It is not only shorter, but also thinner than a yanagiba, what should allow to use it on everyday smaller tasks and also around boneless meats. So in a way - a possibility to actually use a single bevel knife even though I cook fish rarely (and if I do there is very little cutting involved).

09-11-2016, 01:49 PM
Ok so it's a yani on a weight loss program. Is it truly a single? If it is a single I don't see why you think it would perform well on the board chopping or rock slicing? Still pretty though.

Made of old cookery book, can hold up to 25 knives and it cost me 10 dollars.
I bought the books from a second hand shop.

Received this beautiful HHH garasuki a week ago and I can't thank Randy enough for the beautiful workmanship that went in to it!

Here it is next to a Masamoto 145mm Honesuki for perspective (note Masamoto is a tiny bit short from original after a small "incident" :scared4: but Dave Martell came to the rescue and you can't even notice)!

It is not only shorter, but also thinner than a yanagiba, what should allow to use it on everyday smaller tasks and also around boneless meats. So in a way - a possibility to actually use a single bevel knife even though I cook fish rarely (and if I do there is very little cutting involved).

I also use a small 120 yanagi as my petty, but Mucho is right, not a rocker lol. I use it mainly to trim fat off meat and other small tasks.

Blair,

I did get to handle one of the Saji diamond damascus blades (240 gyuto) a year or so back, with an octagonal handle, ebony I think.
I keep thinking of it from time to time, it is possibly the best looking knife I have handled, well maybe 2nd best - I was recently loaned a Maumasi.

With the handle you' ve got on it, awesome.

It was a good cutter too.

Enjoy, I'm envious.

The project below has finally come to fruition after about 3 years.

Shopped the knives for awhile to make up a "set". Ebay and I became buds. And the knives trickled in.

Told Myron at Dream Burls what I was trying to do and that I wanted an "American" wood for these classic American knives. He came thru with enough Ironwood for all and it was on sale as well. Couple hiccups with getting handles made and installed but one of our members took on the project and did some very nice work.

They were looking good, cut ok, but there were some fatties in there.

Sent the first boning knife to Sam at Buttermilk Supply for some thinning and sharpening. Great job. Took awhile but eventually sent him the rest and he has them all cutting just like they know how.

Gotta say the winner in this bunch is the boning knife. Design is near perfect. One will go to kitchen and the other will join my deer kit. And each of them was under 10 bucks on the bay.

Gonna have some fun with these old timers.

Heiji just arrived today from Southern NSW, and it seems to be a good size for me. Its edge is straighter than the other two, so I will see how it works out.

Usually I don't deal with any bird larger than about 2kg. Kato is a little a bit big, so I have been using mainly Shig. It is light, nimble, and came with quite a delicate edge originally. After a bit of sharpening and usage, I have no problem using it to cut through neck bones, and carcass.

Not sure. The knives were the cheapest part. Wood and materials less than 100. Thinning and finish sharpening just north of 100. Handle work was volunteered after a vendor fell through. (Luv this forum!) And time. Was a fun project.

You're gonna need a bigger board. -_-

I got a couple of 240+ mm gyutos to add to the mag bar within the last few days. Haven't gotten the chance to use the Takeda yet, but the one time I used the DT ITK (in 52100), I was instantly converted to 240 or longer gyutos... It freaking cuts like mad on the board, I was instantly a fan of the size and the knife. I thought the handle was ginormous but it makes the balance point just about perfect for me.

Mucho Bocho answered wood question, and the knife was offered privately to me as unused from the original owner. Right now it's my favorite knife to cook with. I totally dig it!
