Nice knife.

I think you are meant to wash the blood off after use though ;)

Seriously though, what is the red steel?

Nice. I am on the edge of buying on of those. Would you be so kind posting a choil pic and telling us few words about the performance? I was afraid it was too thick.
Congrats!

Do you care to say more about the difference between the 'standard Kato" and the workhorse? I have a 210mm Workhorse and I'm looking to purchase a standard probably in 240mm length. I would be interested in your comparison.

one of the major difference is profile i think, with the original flatter while the WH has more continous curve.

How is the performance of the Kayne
I've only had it a day so the jury is still out. It is beautiful for sure and it does have an edge. It's a little "toothy", not at all in a bad way but I'll probably refine it a bit because I like my edge a little smoother. That was to be expected though. I haven't cut enough to talk about food release but hopefully this weekend I can get some stuff done with it. So far I'm liking it.

Very very nice. Looks much better than the pics in JNS.

I don't know what happens with Toyama knives but many people seem to receive them with tips damaged to some extent. I received a 210 kasumi gyuto last week and tip was ok but it had a small chip at the choil, near the edge

My 150 petty arrived fine but got some microchips right at the tip in the first weeks of use. Maybe it's ground or sharpened too thin at the tip...

mine had like a secondary bevel towards the tip that made it too thin and keeps chipping when i was fixing it had to grind it off a bit. just a bit of a letdown knowing you lost a couple of mm already before even using it.

Yes, exactly what happened to my petty. And I think my gyuto is behaving the same way. Probably better to sharpen them before using

From James. He had a few samples without the kanji so I jumped on that. He might still have one. It's exactly the same grind and profile as the ginsan migaki was. So happy I got that one as these might be the last ones ever.

Nemo
07-09-2017, 07:05 AM
Thanks Java.

I was like you on the Dalman, was lucky enough to be on line and at a loose end when it came up. It is very nice- not quite laser thin but with much better food release than you'd expect-slightly better than my SK Syousin Siminagashi (except in tall foods or neat the tip). Haven't sharpened it yet. Responds very nicely to a diamond loaded balsa strop though.

Haven't had enough opprtunity to use the other two yet to form an overall impression. Kurosaki is quite thin, but seems to have good food release given this. The core AS steel is a tiny bit reactive in onion but nothing serious. Profile is a gentle curve, flat spot only about 20% at the heel.

Martell is beutifully finished. Comes very sharp. Very thin behind the edge. Initial impressions are similar performance to Akifusa petty but a little less wedging and better food release.

I not a fan for carboon steel, my first set was Masahiro basic carboon steel, get rust fast, clean up with rust eraser and apply oil. For now I switch to Ginsanko steel knife, got 4 nice already plus couple stainless steel knife. the another carboon steel in knife kit sujihiki AS steel still rust but less then the Masahiro basic set.

As nemo stated it is Takefu steel company equivalent to aogami 2. very slightly different formula but incredibly close. and the knife is pretty darn amazing its ground and polished by Shogo Yamatsuka who does very nice work.

Nice. What would you liken it to? The knife I mean, just so that we can have an idea of along what lines it is

cuts very similar to a shig with a slightly thinner tip ,though i dont believe the grind is the same just good convexing.

I need to play a bit more before I form an opinion. Initial impressions are that the Tristone is a little thinner. Haven't played in wet foods yet, so can't comment on food release. The Dalman's S grind gives it a really good thinness vs food release tradeoff. The Tristone has a double concave grind. It'll be fascinating to see how it performs in wet foods.
