Such an authentic American brand. Love the burlap. Classy

Classy describes them!
I bought mine off the BST after repeatedly failing in the lottery.
Bloodroot saw the ad and reached out to the seller to reassure that the lifetime warranty transfers.
The burlap is from a local coffee roaster. Knife ships with an edge guard "crafted" from three corks from the local wine merchant.
My blade and handle woods were all sourced in Georgia.
Knife: 170 Petty; 36.6mm height at heel; 3.0mm thick, tapering to a very fine tip
Blade: reclaimed granite saw blade. HRC 63
Handle: plated walnut withs plated pecan ferrule
Here some pics from the original sale.

Shibazi small carbon cleaver. Should be an excellent performer once I smooth out the rough bevels and adjust near edge geometry. Just opened the package today, will take to the shapton glass 220 soon.

Some new things from the past month or so:

Konosuke Fujiyama White 2 cleaver

http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p630/YG420/KNIVES/9B70D3D6-1A78-455D-AC6E-DA5C5C9ED0A0_zpsa4mtwq0e.jpg

Tanaka R2 210 gyuto. Man I shouldve jumped on these looooong time ago, what a performer!

http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p630/YG420/KNIVES/59C45C8C-FEF2-4B1D-830A-6121B9655FEF_zpsd5zybcqv.jpg

The next items arent knives, but Im pretty pumped about em:

Finally got around to getting a new handle for my kikuryu that actually fits and feels good. The one that came on it was way too big, so Jon put on a nice burnt chestnut one that I believe he uses on the Gengetsus, what a difference! Feels like a new knife now! I usually like d-shaped handles, but this handle is so good that im not even sure if I want a custom anymore. I may just have to have all my knives rehandled with these.

http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p630/YG420/KNIVES/2F0529F4-42F7-40D5-A193-63A7558F5B91_zpszgswidtn.jpg

Also picked up a sasara brush, veg peeler, fish scaler, and the thing Im probably most impressed about, a small handforged fish tweezer.

http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p630/YG420/KNIVES/B4D85C88-B279-4989-B68C-9E5AE4729A34_zpsnn4epvht.jpg

These tweezers are incredible! Maximum feedback and springiness and they grab fish bones like no other without cutting through them. These blow anything that Ive ever had or tried out of the water. Plus the engraving is pretty cool too :thumbsup:

Some new things from the past month or so:

If that a month or so I can imagine what an entire year brings lol. That's an impressive haul, also impressive photobucket is working for you because mine is fk'd :/

I agree that the Macassar ebony handles on the katos feel too big, the burnt chestnut looks like a winner. I also had Jon rehandle my 210 Workhorse gyuto but with a really nice ichii after doing an incredible polish job on it. Forged tweezers sound cool AF but I can't get enough good fish here to justify but the sasara would also be good for the Yamada wok

Here's the blade, sorry for the teaser earlier :tease:

The folks at Bloodroot Blades are such a joy to work with and the craftsmanship is second to none. 10/10 will buy again. (5y waitlist :bigeek:)

The knife is a integral slicer, somewhat shaped as a gyutohiki imo but a tad less tall.

Blade is 8.25", 37mm tall. - 52100, handle is spalted pecan and the saya is Walnut with a walnut/copper pin.
F/F of the blade is impeccable and the handle feels very good ( a little petite ) tapers nicely.

YGganjamahn - i tried asking jon for gengetsu handles before and was promptly shot down. he must have had an extra laying around from a previous customer asking for a rehandle i guess. i was lucky that labor of love gave me his to put on my takeda (perfect pairing) when he got his gengetsu rehandled. those are pretty amazing handles even though i too prefer d-shape ones.

how do those tweezers perform on large bones? every single one ive tried just bend in the middle and lose grip so you gotta twist jiggle and snap off multiple times to get the stubborn bones out like from cobia. how about a link?

Yea it's actually been a while since I purchased anything, kinda been contempt with what I have, even started to downsize just a little bit.

Idk, I guess Im just getting lucky with pb. I copy and paste the direct link and its been working for me, although I do notice that I cant just click on it once and automatically dl the link like before.

Im not 100% sure it was a gengetsu handle, but it was kinda lying around there like you said but I didnt mind, that thing is perfect!

My dad and brother have been fishing alot more than usual lately and have been bringing home a bunch of halibut, white sea bass and yellowtail and the tweezers have performed better than anything Ive ever used. Theyve been bringing in some good sized fish with larger bones and the tweezers have handled them pretty easily. The only time they ever lost any grip is when they got saturated with fish oil and pieces of meat and all I had to do was clean them off with a paper towel, theyre as good as new!

I got the small sized ones which are good for me being a home user and Jons cheaper ones seem great as well, but the feedback and precision with the forged ones are off the chain!

I might have to try those forged ones. But I can't justify over $100 for tweezers so I'll try the 'light' ones which seem more heavy duty than regular ones anyway.

Any taper on that beast? My B2 petty is pretty stout throughout, been wondering about the gyuto geometry

There is a nice distal taper. It doesn't taper super thin, but the grind is pretty high at the tip.

Yeah, i personally wouldn't buy one of these either simply for aesthetic (or should i say symmetric) reasons, but food release wise it works like a charm....

On another note, i cant wait to receive my 280mm Gyuto from him later this month. Of course without any kind of hollow grind.... :D

Picked this one up as a wedding present for a friend. Needs a new handle, but otherwise, I'm impressed with the fit and finish. The spine and choil were already rounded and it's very polished for a sub $150 knife.

The cladding is a new and undisclosed material, not just the soft iron they normally use. I know that contributes to it some. But they also have some bonkers stones at their disposal to help bring it all out.

totally! great guy! little knife is as sharp as forever out of the box. Fit and finish better than what I expected reading all nashiji reviews, spine ridge/valley barely observable and choil is pretty eased. Handle is pretty nice for a 7500 yen knife but will be going for a rehandle anyways hehe. Grind looks ok with some higher or lower spots (nothing crazy or of a concern for such a small knife) - can def see my denka better in this aspect but its also quite a bit more expensive. And its sharp! I think i said that already!

That's good to hear. I was looking at the 150mm petty a bit ago but the F&F issues and the rosewood handle being out of stock turned me away. Definitely show us the rehandle when it's done!

That's good to hear. I was looking at the 150mm petty a bit ago but the F&F issues and the rosewood handle being out of stock turned me away. Definitely show us the rehandle when it's done!

i think the fit and finish i see on mine is really just the wood scales on the handle being just a smidge taller than the tang itself, resulting in a valley between scale and tang on the bottom side of the handle - again not an issue if it's already going out for a rehandle or you can just sand it flush. The spine really doesn't have a valley between the stainless cladding and the core steel as mentioned by other folks through various reviews, I don't forsee anything getting caught in that valley even before i sanded it with 400 grit sand paper - now that I sanded it's 99% flush (a few more pass with a slightly lower grit will flush it 100%)

can't say 100% how good or bad the grind is up from the edge but I can see some high and low spots through rotating the knife under bright lighting but nothing i can feel by hand (so should be quite shallow and first thinning will take care of them). Overall the blade is thin right at the edge so should be a really good cutter like most TF.

Itsuo doi looks a lot like a ks. San mai blue steel tho right?

Omega

@Panda Yup- the Doi gyuto is san mai, B#2 steel. Profile is very similar to the KS, though with more curve in the sweep to the tip. Grind is also wildly different- not a laser by any stretch. Also closer to 240, as opposed to the 255 of most KS. Super fun knife though, and the finish is stellar.

Every so often a knife comes around where you can really see the maker's vision manifest in every aspect of the blade. This is such a knife. And I say that as someone who would not naturally be drawn at all to this style. Just strikes me that a lot of thought and care went into this one.

Hi there!

Here is my new Xerxes custom knife with a balance screw in the tip of the Handle
Its no Laser but a Demon of Pullcut ;)

196mm length
39mm height
San-Mai with 1.2562 outer layers with puddeliron

It looks really similar to the xerxes Primus knifes, but it has a custom handle
The handle is Octagonal and bog oak with a blonde translucent cow bolster
it is shaped so that i dondt touch my arm when using it with pinchgrip and it has a screw in the back that lets me adjust the balance point of the knife

Its an awesome cutter!! And has more weight than my usual lasers...
And its perfectly crafted! I love the works from xerxes. The steel is a real high performance kitchen knife steel and it looks just awesome.

Seeya, Daniel

i cant get over the anderson handle, it looks so awkward to use

I agree it looks unconventional, and I don't have one myself, but if you think about it, there is some method to his madness. In a hammer grip it gives a palm swell that seats the handle in your grip. In a pinch grip, the swell acts to keep your palm from sliding back. The angled facets help keep the handle from rotating in hand more than a round or oval shape. Additionally, the blade's heel is angled away from the handle eliminating unused edge weight under where your pinch grip is located. Cris made a YouTube vid awhile ago about his handles and gripping them in use.

Of course, if it looks awkward or aesthetically unpleasant to you, this is unlikely to change your opinion.

Well each to his own I guess ... i.e. flashy handles ... for your own sake Panda - please look away :eek2:

Just received my re-handled Devin (225) ITK and a JKI Gengetsu (270) suji from Randy (HHH) … my crappy photos will never do them justice. FWIW the awesome handle Devin made for me - that was removable found a new home on a Mario 225 gyuto (not wasted).

Thx Randy for being willing to take on some “side work” … very much appreciated.

Sorry brother the Gengetsu was a Western ... not Wa (but Chinacat had already sent me a PM asking for the Wa if it had been ... LOL)! See pic!

i was thinking the same thing until i saw the bolster and realized it was a western. luckily the burnt chestnut handle that came with my heiji suji is just fine, the only thing that would make it better is if it was D-shaped one.

i gotta admit though i prefer western handle for suji.

Any downfalls in your mind? I've only got the medium size... which (with the way i work) really is useless for anything over 210. Seems like it stains easily, but otherwise I really like the feedback off the board when cutting. Haven't had any issues with warping ect.

I agree. I loved my k&s ginsan tanaka to death. I have a pretty decent size collection and I always seem to be reaching for the tanaka. Urgh, I still regret giving that thing away.

Anyway.. noticed the picture didn't show up on my last post. Some of my recent aquisitions.
