I can't really see, but is the Kanji carved or painted ?

Not carved. I looks like maybe etched and painted.

k.

It's actually even more rainbowy in person. It must be some kind of lacquer, because after a day of cutting, cleaning, and wiping, it's still as psychedelic as ever.

It's also shown 0 reactivity, which is not typical of white steel.

Probably want to strip that off...I believe Jon posted that it was to protect the blade from moisture in shipping, don't remember what it was, but may not be too food friendly? It is very psychedelic--I like.:biggrin:

yeah... use acetone to remove that... the mirror finish will be much nicer, but the colors will be gone

Justin0505
02-01-2013, 03:25 PM
... but the colors will be gone

That depends on the quantity of acetone and ventilation of the space :dazed:

Seriously though, is there any harm in leaving it on for a bit?

JBroida
02-01-2013, 03:31 PM
lol... no real harm in leaving it on other than splotchy patina development... however, 100% of knife makers will tell you to take it off before use

Now, if I wanted to keep the JKI tradition of fustrating teases going, that's all I'd post :devilburn:

But, I can't keep a secret:

Gesshin Ginga custom Honyaki Suji / Suji-yuto

white #2
230mm custom profile and blade shape
linen micarta "coke bottle" handle
pinned boster (Jon says they these guys where the 1st to master that construction technique)

About a year in works, 11days shipping when USPS "lost track" of it for awhile, and I just unboxed it today and spent the past few hours cutting up everything I could get my hands on.

Full gallery (black background pics are from Jon):

https://picasaweb.google.com/117600618285187025883/GingaHonyaki?authuser=0&feat=directlink


Video and review coming eventually....

not the first to master the technique, but the people that do it best IMHO

A Year in The Works!!!, Is that a typical wait time to get a knife that is not in stock at the time you log on?

A year can potentially be the wait time for a custom knife depending on the maker. Especially if you want something very specific.

Justin0505
02-01-2013, 07:19 PM
Most of bigger name custom makers have wait lists of 1-2yrs + before they even START work on your order.
For this knife i was working with a maker that already regularly produces semi-production type batches of knives. Many makers like them havd stopped taking custom orders just because its not worth the hassle and time away from regular production.

After I spent a couple months bouncing design ideas of a (very patient) Jon, the estimated lead time on the actual knife making was just a few months. It turned out to be longer, but I still consider it a bargain both in time and money.

This thing is so sweet. It's very thin. The OOTB edge is toothy and sharp. This is my 2nd Yoshikane. The first was a 240mm SKD hammered finish gyuto, a much stouter knife, though a great performer.

Cheers,

I still havent put it through anything heavy but I loved it right out the box. Light but not too light. Felt great in the hand considering its my first wa at 240mm, with my western handled knives I would always reach for my 210 over a 240. I had intended on getting the HD2 at 210 but i was too small, kinda felt like a large petty once I started handling it. The buffalo ferrule also caught my eye, all the others in the shop on ebony handles were very blonde, this one was a redhead.

Now its a slippery slope as I'm now looking at more and more wa handled knives. Next on my wish list is a replacement for my cheapy Usuba.

02-26-2013, 05:42 PM
Thinking of ordering a 150mm nashiji fujiwara terayasu petty. Cant decide on wa or western though. Should fill the gap between paring and 200mm wabucho and 240mm gyuto.

Mailman brought this to work today, 300mm Hiromoto AS suji. I immediately put it on the stones and went to town for an hour or so. Chosera 400 to thin a good bit and cut in a new bevel. Then JNS 1K and JNS Aoto, and a few swipes on BC loaded felt. I am very happy with the edge it took. Cleanly shaves (arm/leg), push cuts xerox paper all the way out to the last inch. I was cleanly cutting hanging c-fold towels (folded up all the way) when I was done. Relatively easy to get there too, most of my time was spent thinning and grinding away a little micro billing near the heel. Here's a couple pics, apologies for the bad lighting and my general lack of photographic skill.

Afzelia burl. That's what I was told. I'm not one to know anything about these things, but it looks great, and is nice and smooth and well done. Ill take some better pics in the light tomorrow, but unfortunately all the patina was ground off the edge during sharpening, but a minute with some wet/dry paper and I was able to get almost all of the thinning scratches out of the cladding. I'm happy I ended up with a 300 too, perfect length I think for a suji. I Need a big ass tuna loin to block out.

Dave is working on my dragon gyuto right now also in red eye koa. So very stoked. Even though I've made a shift from carbon to semi stainless/ high end stainless at work the dragon is just too bad ass to keep out of rotation. Still want to try a ks gyuto but only if it was re handled I think.

Mine is a 255mm suji/line knife/gyuto-hiki made by Heath Besch. It's random pattern 1095/1018 damascus, with a blackwood, copper and ironwood handle. It cuts amazingly well. I'm kinda in love....

bought it at bladeforums off of an independent knife maker with the nick of gimmejr

he said it was AEB-L hardened to around 57-58RC, octagonal natural micarta handles with brass rivets. a bit on the thick side and softer hardness, but it's fine for what i need it for. =D

it arrived with micro chips on the edge, probably sharpened with a belt type thing. fixed that up quickly.

you guys are right about AEB-L, it's very fine grained and sharpens up real well. sharpens up very much like carbon. it cut me already. lol. i'll play around with it soon. i'll probably take round off the shoulders to help with the cutting.

the handle's a bit on the small side but it's nice and comfy, decent grippyness for the size.

sorry for lots of pix.

The handle is dyed maple burl from Mark and some really old flame maple I've had for years. I ground the top of the tang and cut a groove for the handle to fit in after I attached the ferrule. I rounded the back then mated the back cap. Bit of a puzzler this one - but hey it's how I learn.

I picked this little petty up from a guy in Hawaii. I swear it's honyaki - it looks the same as my Takagi, sounds the same on the stones and when I was rounding the spine and choil I could see no core even under magnification.

I'm new to these parts, so forgive me if I'm jumping in too early.
Here's a 10" Dexter I bought for a dollar the other day. I sanded the handle flush and smoothed it out. Sanded off the rust as best I could and ground the finger guards off.
Then I paid a guy $10 to sharpen it on the EdgePro. Great knife.

Few of us have, no matter how many we seem to try. "Deciding" on stones is a myth.
My new theory: Just pick a couple and get after it.

That's a great knife to learn on as it will sharpen up nice for you even with imperfect technique, and it will also show a performance increase for your thinning efforts. Lots to be learned there.

It is Blue #2. I don't know what the cladding is.

120mm, pear skin finish, blue steel, and of course left handed, $43 plus $7 shipping, plus $12 bribe (instead of $50 tax, which is a load of crap!!!)

I'm loving the KS. My first purchase of Japanese knives like this so I was shocked by the overall lightness, balance, and the edge of course.

Haven't tried out the Shun yet, but I have some chicken legs that I am going to try deboning, should be interesting... I was least excited for the Shun, but I wanted a honesuki because I like to break down poultry, and it was listed as a $400 knife. Williams Sonoma had it for $150 so I jumped on it (looks like it is still at $150 if anyone is interested).

The handle's fit and finish, is outstanding! I always want a all nature materials handle & Tilman able made it exactly what I asked for!!
the blade profile is more like my DT custom, I desinge it for wider, flatten/low tip edge profile. Watanabe gyuto has more curly/hight tip edge profile.

So I caved and bought one. Been wanting some high tech stainless for a while. Konosuke ZDP189 240 mm gyuto.

The handle is ebony wood with mango scales, nickel silver spacer, and black titanium ferrule.

An observation, I've never seen such shallowly engraved kanji. Also, the wood of the handle has a peculiar smell (yes I sniffed the knife...)

Not knives, but I added some stones.
L to R, unknown, but likely 1000/4000 generic Japanese stone, Bester 500, Beston 1200, Suehiro "Rika" 5000. Those last three courtesy of the JKS three stone special. They add to my Franz Swaty 6000 oilstone, an oddball that I'm reasonably sure is a coticule, and a Norton 180 (finally found that damn thing). Now I just need to hone my technique. I just bought the cutting board, too. My first endgrain board, and it has me wondering, like so many other things, why the heck I waited so long to get one.
