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.

Yes, Might be! Japanny have a couple of videos on Youtube of different "Takayuki Away" blacksmiths making the knives. The knife on JCK looks similar, but the price point is half of the knife I got. hmm.

Handles and sayas were made by Carter Hopkins. Handles are ironwood (regular for the Koishi and Takeda / burl for the petty, which was also my by CH) with Ukrainian bog oak ferrules/end caps and nickel-silver & black buffalo horn spacers. Sayas are ribbon sapele. And to think that I used to be impressed by Shuns :facepalm:

150mm Toyama Kasumi Petty

Pics here:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8whNyGUZqBJVGlwV1A2NWdSZnM

Really excited about this one. My first handmade J knife (my others are MACs) so any comparison is limited. At 35-36mm height, I see this turning out really versatile. Used it yesterday to make a ratatouille. It handled every task with ease, and to be honest the OOTB sharpness wasn't that great when cutting through paper but it made a beautiful job on the vegetables. Can't wait to see what it can do after being sharpened. Makes me think harder about getting the 210 gyuto...

One of the pics was after making the ratatouille. Showing some crazy patina already.

I have some totally beginner questions for you regarding the handle:

1- Should I seal the handle, where the blade enters (see pic)? I'm wondering about water getting into the handle and causing any problems...

2- In one of the pics you can see the handle looks kinda raw ("hairy" I would say) and feels a bit dry/rough to the touch. Should I apply some oil/cream or something? Its no big deal for me, just worried about long term condition of the wood if I leave it like this (looks kinda dry...)

Many thank's!

Brijac
04-15-2017, 09:06 PM
If it can't cut paper properly it ain't even close to sharp :D Get some work on waterstones :) As for the handle, get fine grit sandpaper and do some work on it. After that coat it with mineral oil. I don't know what type of sealant he used for holding the blade in the handle, if its vax or epoxy there is no need to seal it with anything. If it's just hammered/burned into the wood then you should coat that area with mineral oil/beeswax aswell.
Edit: just saw the pic, if i were you i'd coat that area with mineral oil then seal with vax.

Thank's Brijac, will try that on the handle! Yes it's probably not even sharp but I was surprised how well it could cut even in that state...

paper cutting is the most useless test that everyone does. you need to cut food with it to judge real world sharpness. regardless, never go by out of box edge anyway.

To go with the distal taper the hollow needs to be adjusted, both for function and looks, so you're probably seeing that transition area where it gets tapered. Same goes for the bevels, everything wants taper, and then we want looks too 😌

None stir taken hehe ;) I think there may be a small unevenness (that I attempted to explain a little) you're seeing and it shows a little in my pic too, the lighting probably exaggerated it a little :) thanks.

I bought this one from James at K&S after eying it for a long time.

Beautiful handle. Lovely hamon for aogami. Flat profile, very similar to my Yoshikane tsuchime SKD. Not a very tall gyuto. Workhorse grind, very convex on right, a little on left. Feels very solid. Excellent food release. Thin tip.

Great for getting through lots of food quickly.

Forms a light grey patina fairly quickly.

Very similar performance to Mert's 52100 mega workhorse which was reviewed here: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/30927-Australia-pass-around-for-workhorse-gyuto/page2

Except it's much shorter, not as accomplished a rock chopper, is slightly thinner behind the edge and its food release isn't quite as brilliant as the mega-workhorse.

Sorry for the poor pictures. You can see the hamon if you squint.

270X73mm "Gyuto" in SKD. This thing is a beast, hella thin behind the edge and has food separation that's fantastic!

AND 300mm Honekiri. I've been told by my guy that this is a Mizuno. That blonde horn though, right? Spine at the handle is 6mm if I recall.

Thanks everyone!

I'm looking forward to trying to get a nice patina on it. The unexpected patina on one of my other knives (billed as hard core stainless, but apparently not immune to discoloration) made me want to try our a carbon steel knife. And while longer than I typically prefer, the "dragon" design sold me (plus the profile, and the high regard people give the Misono Swedish Steel Dragon).

After sharpening I could press it without much effort into a paper towel on the cutting board and hear/see it cut the towel cleanly without moving the blade back and forth. Wow that's sharp.

The Misono Swedish knives really do take a nice edge. Very reactive at first but forms a nice patina in no time. Proteins make it turn a copper-ish blue

I didn't find the reactivity too hard to manage. There wasn't a need to rinse and wipe immediately after one onion or tomato dice like what some of these soft iron clad carbons I've owned have acted like...
Profile is lovely

Next step - hanging paper towel cuts :)

Good to know. I did a naughty thing and cut a lime last night. No discoloration or anything at all. Good sign.
It did basically fall through the lime which was fun.

the 240 dragon was my first carbon knife and it is a very forgiving carbon blade. It is my Western beater knife. With beater I don't mean that I throw everything at it, but when I am in the mood for a Western handle I pull out this one in 9 out of 10 cases. Why? This knife is simple and easy to maintain, reactivity is gone once you have built a patina and this knife just feels great. F&F on mine was immaculate, better than on many knives I've had so far...

Just fired off the appropriate thank you emails to the German members who nudged me in the direction of this knife. This thing is nuts! I asked for it ground a little thinner behind the edge because I'm pretty much set for midweights and workhorses and they nailed it.

Xerxes knives, the makers name is Jannis Scholz, young german guy.

He makes full customs, semi customs and a line of knives named "Primus" for a german vendor (Messerkontor - not sure I'm allowed to link to that).

The one Badgertooth bought is from that Primus line. Comes in 230mm, 180 (I think) and Petty (130?!)

thank you guys! i was just gonna hop by since it was about 20 mins train ride and most pics i see of people buying from his direct store deals with his storefront person so i thought i would just go choose myself a denka but was absolutely surprised by the small chinese cleaver in the dislplay case and even more so when he came out from the back hahaha, I picked a pretty thin behind the edge denka but it was slightly tipped so I asked for it to be fixed immediately and he came out with the fixed blade lol! It was totally amazing from that point and on. We chatted some more and had my sons kanjj engraved by himself and we chatted about his trip to canada and knifewear. I will post more pics after i get home but I also got a tshirt from him as a gift! :D

Can't get over that cleaver… when you're taking pictures again could you get a profile shot from head on? No rush and can wait until you're back in Canada but I'm trying to decide what to do with my dead flat moritaka cleaver.

yes i will :D

So what is you initial take on your moritaka? Mine was a catch and release as I couldn't get past the size and thickness, would have taken way too much work to get it where I would have wanted it. I'm gonna stick with my Pierre R cleaver, it's flat, thin and an ideal weight.... only thing I don't like about it is it's not Japanese.

From what can read from Merts instagram, it's a two colored amboyna burl. I'm not familiar with this wood, but it's really beautiful, and the colors are strong on the side pictured, and more subtle on the other.

Looks like a living breathing fire. The amboyna on the knife I have is definitely not as 'firy' as yours

thanks guys! yes the red handle has a good contrast with the overall look! fit and finish is fine to the point where it matches the rustic-ness overall and i love it. I believe the balance point is about right near between kanji and bolster. Indeed it should match the mini cleaver very well hehe will have to use them first hehe.

and here is my final pick up for the trip. the streaks are oil streaks from oil applied by oguro san. :D very warm person along with his wife!

Dear Forumists,

after asking (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/32195-Chinese-Cleaver-Cai-dao-%96-Carbon-or-Stainless-Steel?p=480084#post480084) you for advice (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/32361-Does-Chan-Chi-Kee-CCK-%E9%99%B3%E6%9E%9D%E8%A8%98-still-exist), over analyzing and angsting, I finally decided on the CCK models, and last week they arrived. So, here are some photos and measurements of the cleavers, and also added my old cleaver for comparison.


I have not used them very much yet, but will so very soon. The 1912 is not very sharp. I tried sharpening it with my Spyderco Sharpmaker with an 15° angle, but without much success. Should I try 20° instead you think, or rather thinning it out? It seems to be thicker behind the edge than its sister 1303.

Well yes, the 1303 or the 1102 are far too thin to chop through even chicken bones and the like. It is often said that the chinese use only one knife for all purposes (and in this case it would be a cleaver with a thickness between the 1303 and the 1402), but truth is that many—especially those more actively interested in food and knives—use two instead, namely the very thin (1303) and a medium heavy chopper (1402).

You probably made the right decision with the wood handled 1402. When your search started it inspired me to order the all metal handled version of that knife from Chefs Mall. While it chops chicken bone just fine the metal handle is extremely slippery once you get a little fat on it.

You ordered the steel or iron handle? Would love to hear more about your experiences with it. How do you sharpen it? Probably not so very steep? Which size? Photos?

1443 No. 2, which Chefs Mall calls the small size. All stainless handle. I really haven't sharpened it yet but when I sharpen a cleaver I tend to do a lot of chicken bone chopping with I do it at a relatively steep angle. Maybe 25 degrees. like I mentioned, I haven't had any edge problems chopping chicken bones but that handle sure is slippery.

I love my 1102. I have Sugimoto and Tadatsuna chukabocho, both of which I adore, but performance-for-dollar the 1102 is unbeatable.

Nice to hear. Right now, I am a bit intimidated by its size, so I mostly go for the 1303. Maybe, however, this will change over time.

Thanks Kamelion - you have put together a fantastic summary together here and I am very appreciative of the time and effort you put into it!

You have inspired me to look into getting a Chinese cleaver/blade! And your detailed summary helps quite a bit!

Dear Forumists,

after asking (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/32195-Chinese-Cleaver-Cai-dao-%96-Carbon-or-Stainless-Steel?p=480084#post480084) you for advice (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/32361-Does-Chan-Chi-Kee-CCK-%E9%99%B3%E6%9E%9D%E8%A8%98-still-exist), over analyzing and angsting, I finally decided on the CCK models, and last week they arrived. So, here are some photos and measurements of the cleavers, and also added my old cleaver for comparison.


I have not used them very much yet, but will so very soon. The 1912 is not very sharp. I tried sharpening it with my Spyderco Sharpmaker with an 15° angle, but without much success. Should I try 20° instead you think, or rather thinning it out? It seems to be thicker behind the edge than its sister 1303.

Good morning all,

It has been an amazing few weeks as I anxiously awaited the deliveries of 2 new knives I had purchased from CKTG. Both of these items were Honyaki blades and items that Mark was kind enough to send directly to my handle maker of choice after purchase. Therefore, having never actually seen the blades in person I had to rely on my handle artisan, Matt Delosso, to insure the blade handles would be balanced and visually appropriate. Matt was the genius who created the art work handle previously for my Kato Damascus so Matt was my first choice for handling these two amazing blades. The combination of Art, Form and Function that Matt brings to the table, with all of his designs, absolutely resonates with my sense of style. His customer service is first rate as it takes time to meld the concepts of the craftsman with the desires of the customer. However, Matt does all the above in spades with the results being even more than I could ask for. Unfortunately, Pictures cannot possibly do these blades justice.. They are actually more stunning in person.

The first blade was a great surprise knife the Mark put up for sale. It was advertised as a Konosuke 300 Fuguhiki Honyaki W-2 . In tracing back the smith's Kanji, located on the now hidden tang, It turns out that although this amazing blade is a Konosuke it was smithed by the famous Genkai Masakuni. The visual Hamon pattern is the Mount Fuji style making this not only a stunning blade but a collectors piece as well. Regardless of the craftsman responsible, making this a highly collectable knife, I can assure you all, this knife is going to be well used as it applies to my Sushi/Sashimi parties I put on. So here are a few pictures of this beauty. As a note, both the blades are super highly polished so getting the Hamon lines to pop is rather difficult but in person they are stunning.

The Second blade is a Visual and function stunner.. A 330 Sukenari Honyaki Sujihiki from W-1. Though I knew exactly what I wanted for the main section of the handle, Matt was kind enough to really try out various materials for the butt and ferule sections.. Though neither of us are afraid to use some wild designs to add some bling to the handle, we ended up exactly where I envisioned the design. To say this knife came out magnificently would be to demean Matt's work.. The balance is spot on the pinch. The craftsmanship is exquisite. The visual is stunning. It is simply perfection.

What I like about mine is that though it is a little flat in cross section (still cuts very well), it will mature gracefully as subsequent sharpening leads to thinning and gentle convexing.

05-13-2017, 01:15 PM
mucho, it's an absolutely sick knife (sweet flat and tall profile, good grind), well worth the money. only reason i'm not keeping mine is because it runs short, i prefer 240 to run long. plus i have sukenari honyaki in 270 (without mirror cause i hate polished finish) that runs short in waiting to be completed. nothing better than honyaki white steel, closest would be heiji carbon.
