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.

How long did you have to wait?

Wow, just realized that my pic of Tristone knife has been brought back to life. Firstly, thank you for the compliments, Chadd did all the hard work [emoji16]

Food release is excellent, I did not wait long because his list was not long then. Most of the wait was from gathering all the materials from around the world

If you are on the fence, pls get in touch with him. His knife will cut! My only suggestion is, if you can live without the super mirror finish, go less than mine. To my experience, it causes some stiction but I can remedy it by adjusting my cutting technique. Also, it is hard to maintain in a pro kitchen.

How is that little tall petty? Interesting shape and handle.

I haven't had the chance to use it too much, but so far I like it a lot. It's basically a mini-workhorse (workpony?): wide bevel and good heft for its size. The one on top has a longer handle so it's quite a bit heavier. They came with a mean toothy edge out of the box, too. The spine is hammered down where it starts to curve towards the tip so it gets wider there a bit before tapering nicely. I minced some garlic and ginger and couldn't feel any difference between this and the Shiro Kamo laser gyuto (and that one's so thin, it's practically 2D).

I have to say, that I am a bit puzzled by how much I like it:scratchhead: The handle is heavier than I thought I liked, but very comfortable to me and balances the knife well. Also, it has a continuous curve instead of a long flat spot, which I thought I preferred. It is 225 - 230 instead of 240, not that that matters all that much. It is more expensive than I am comfortable spending. Anyway, very strange, but so far I like it....:doublethumbsup:

Tanaka B2 KU 190mm (actually 185mm) from MM. This is basically a project knife to test stones, and basically train sharpening and polishing (it got more than a bit of action yesterday). I also plan to make my first handle for this knife once I can work outside.

I know it's frequently seen around here but...

For some reason the knife gods smiled at me and I was clearing out my junk mail when Maxims email came through. I've always wanted to try the workhorse versions of a kato or shig so I jumped on it even though it was a 240.

I now get the shig love. It's an amazing blade and difficult to believe it came from the same smith as my crappy 165 nakiri.

(Does a little happy dance)

Eta Sorry for the poor picture. It's a JNS shig 240.

Is the warp minor? If the edge is straight, I'd bet that's no big deal

Too be honest, I don't know. I will try too get a good picture. I would be happy to send it off to see if I could get it repaired. But I know some don't work on other people's handiwork. If you know of anyone that could help. Let me know

Thank, I always want to try out Konosuke Gyuto, Just pick up the knife got the discount this week. Will be using tomorrow at work, do some prep and cut some sushi roll. The f&f very good, just quick 15 minute run to stone and knife ready for use. I hope their price not go up a lot in future, interest pick some more knife from this brand.

Tie, The Kono Ginsan hasn't been available on the market for a long time. Not sure where you picked that up. I've got the 210 (199mm) and 240 (232mm). Their wonderful knives, the stainless sharpens up very quickly, but be careful on the stones. The edge is so thin and S ground, that if you take too much off that super thin edge and not raise the shinogi (which you really can't because these knives are hollow ground), you'll have a wedge monster on your hands in no time.

I see, Thank for the information. I just don't sharpen to hard on these knives, maybe let the knives get dull for a bit then sharpen then polish. If you like to buy these knives check on bernal cutlery website, also check Cutboy from Thailand, sometimes they got some Konosuke as well.

Thanks. Cowry-X is a powder steel with a lot of C and Cr, some similar properties to zdp189. I do not know if it is still being manufactured; the knife itself is discontinued as far as I know.

The board is a standard small Taiwanese thing that seemed soft enough. Nothing expensive or luxurious but easy to get.

Water is because a big fat shiny mirror cleaver is boring.

Ok, I looked up cowry-x; it's a pm steel that I wasn't familiar with, 3% carbon and 20% chromium, impressive stuff!

I am not lost on your understatement "Nothing fancy..." - a large blade of 3% carbon pm-steel!! >.<

I really dunno how the knife will hold up over time; could be junk for all I know. It was a moderate risk since it was several times more expensive than my oft-used vtoku blades. Sounds cool on paper and the handle is reasonably comfortable now, so if it is not rubbish, I'll be pretty happy with it.

Gengetsu 240 semi-stainless and prime deckle. Love the long flat spot, cutting performance and fit and finish. Found myself reaching for my girlfriends 8" ZKramer stainless since we've been getting home late from work. Didn't want to spend the time maintaining my carbon knives. The Gengetsu semi-stainless is just what I was looking for in a low maintenance 240 wa gyuto.
By the way, the core steel responds well to Jnats.

Right. What exactly is it? I don't mean what is a super conductor, I mean what is the actual material used in the bolster?

This superconductor is a piece of Titanium Niobium superconductor preform. It starts it's life as a huge copper block with hundreds of holes drilled into it. Into those holes Ti/Nb alloy rods are inserted. The whole block is then plasma welded in a vacuum until it's a solid billet. This is a piece of material that was not yet drawn into wire which would be the next phase in production. It has been formed into about 1/3 of original size in preparation for drawing into wire. When completed it has zero resistance and is used in Atomic Super Colliders.

Sillywizard the superconduction is with regards to electricity, and only at liquid-helium temperatures :) Which is all the more interesting in practical applications, since it starts being a resistor (and thus heating up) once it gets too warm... which helps to boil the liquid helium which... :)

I've been using it every day. I try to buy my knives to use...and then to admire. But if they don't perform then there is no point IMO.
Having said that I do own some that only get to the board occasionally due to their rarity or focussed functionality. Or my inability to extract the best from them :scratchhead:
I guess I am a collector, but I'm a user first and foremost.

Not sure I want to embarrass myself with a video of my dubious knife skills!!!!

How about some impressions and choil shot?

So far I've only cut an onion, 3 duck breasts and 5 hanger steaks with it. So I don't have a real opinion on its performance. It's much thinner behind the edge than I expected. And I expected lots of stiction from the mirror finish but didn't feel so. Reactivity is also much lower than expected. Has that glassy board feel that very hard shirogami usually offers. It's a beautiful blade with an equally beautiful handle from K&S. I've wanted one of these for a while now so BIG thanks to James for selling me the blade and putting his handle on it. I'll post a choil shot and some more detailed notes this weekend after I've actually done stuff with it.

Soooo, last Friday I got my first knife by a custom western knife maker (Mario). This one stayed on the boards long enough for me to put together the budget from two months and then Mario was great, holding it for me until I was able to finish payment. I have less fitness gear but the most gorgeous knife I have ever held in my hands (and it isn't even close). This and a stone have eaten my budget and then some for three months but I'm very happy with it.

Not a custom order, it was a ready made knife but the height is perfect for me, I like tall blades. The things that I really liked were the height, profile and handle. In a perfect world it would have been 15-20mm longer I guess.

All I can say for now is that the Mario is convex ground all the way up, clearly asymmetric and very thin all around.

@foody518 This one is why I was hopeless for the auction yesterday, not such a bad way to make myself broke though :D.

Soooo, last Friday I got my first knife by a custom western knife maker (Mario). This one stayed on the boards long enough for me to put together the budget from two months and then Mario was great, holding it for me until I was able to finish payment. I have less fitness gear but the most gorgeous knife I have ever held in my hands (and it isn't even close). This and a stone have eaten my budget and then some for three months but I'm very happy with it.
XHP @62 HRC, 212mm long and 54mm at the heel, stunning Rosewood burl and Blackwood ferrule.

Looks gorgeous. I don't know Takayuki Awai at all, can you tell me a bit about him?

It certainly looks like it could be by the late Masami Azai :)

Picked up this 100yr old restored and sharpened 6 pin cimeter and put it to good use chopping up a whole hog along with my vintage cleaver this weekend

Wow, that's a cool knife and very INTIMIDATING. Never mess with a man carrying a cleaver in one hand and a cimeter in the other. :nunchucks:

I honestly don't have much information, other that he makes beautiful knives. There's some information on Japanny, but other than that information is scarse.

Congrats! Should be decently thin behind the edge, but I've found the actual initial edge to be a bit brittle and quick to wear. Benefits highly from a good stone sharpening to get some fresh metal on there and make it just the slightest bit thicker/more durable right at the edge bevel

Shinko Seilan (青岚) Gyuto 240mm Kurouchi clad Aogami Super core by Shiro Kamo from Knives and Stones. Wanted to use for a Jnat test knife, but may be catch and release on BST since I got this beast below…

Moritaka AS chukabocho. Completely flat profile which I think I'll like as I'm a fan of the Shig nakiri profile… may also double as a noodle knife

I would suspect the "Takayuki Awai" to be a version of this one, but sold with a mangled description: https://japanesechefsknife.com/collections/kagayaki-aogami-super-custom-damascus-wa-bocho-series/products/jck-original-kagayaki-aogami-super-custom-damascus-series-kas-3-wa-santoku-165mm6-4inch. The smith responsible is an apprentice of Masami Azai (not Awai), and his knives are commonly sold under the Azai name.

Bought my wife the 150 petty and 190 gyuto. She absolutely loves them as do I. Incredible knives for the price. I think they're great even compared to some more expensive stuff I have. Also Tanakas version of VG10 really is surprisingly nice.
