I wasn't 100% pleased with the board at first, it wasn't quite flat. It wasn't worth it to send it back, so I ran it through my neighbor's planer, now I'm pretty happy with it. If I had it to do over, I would have just spent a few more $ on a better board.

Bought it off ebay. Overall F&F was OK, just not properly flat.
I figgered I was better off not to try and return it, what with eating shipping in two directions. It only took a few passed through the planer to get it straightened out, and I'm likin' it pretty good. Sure feels a whole lot better than the long grain board that it replaces.

I bought mine from chopbloc.com and it is a great looking/feeling board but the customer service and runaround I got was brutal!! Also, there is a pretty good sized defect in the bottom of the board but like you, I don't believe its worth the trouble of trying to return it. Looks good and feels good, so i'll just keep it :)

Its 18 x 24, 3 inches thick. There was a pic of it in Boardsmiths thread offering it, but it didn't look as large there as there was nothing for reference. This is a nice, BIG board.

Really love the tojiro at its price point! It was my first carbon blade and didnt want to spend a lot on something i may or maynot have liked. It had a few grind issues which through several sessions on the stones i worked out. I also stripped the kurouchi finish off it last night and am starting to polish the blade.. got the idea after looking at this..http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/11648-Who-says-you-can-t-polish-a-turd

This is probably my favorite thing about this knife:

http://i.imgur.com/x1AaY4W.jpg

Where the handle & bolster meets the choil, it's ground to better fit a righty. It's still pretty comfortable in the left hand, but it just melts into a good right-handed pinch grip. The handle itself is a pretty symmetric coke bottle, so it works equally well for a right or left-handed hammer grip. I love this knife. :)

That Rader is just sick -

I bought a Tojiro bird's beak turning knife. Problem - I kept stabbing myself with the point by the choil. Solution - a rehandle of course. Nice knife that is a great peeler and for detail work. I didn't like the skimpy wa handle - I like this much better it fits the palm nicely and no stabby.

Ok, can we discuss this patina here? It looks a lot like one I've done before on a zKrameer by doing patterns with mustard, doing each pattern (or layer) one at a time, allowing each time to set for 2hrs.

If you are forcing a patina like that, polish the blade with 0000 steel wool and camellia oil to get that smooth finish.

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...)

Finally pulled the trigger, and now I'm kicking myself in the a** for not doing so sooner. Taming the Dragon. Been wanting one for a while, but just kept putting it on the back burner. I admit, after seeing Lefty's gussied up version (and for a split second thinking it was actually up for sale :fanning:), I decided to just get my own and put that itch to rest. Oh yes, I will gussy mine up in due time, but what a fun knife! One of the sharpest OTB blades I've ever gotten.And my first Swedish steel to boot



http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a520/marc4pt0/20130405_200015_zpsb5216668.jpg

Thanks for posting this – I never paid much attention to Misono knives, and didn’t realize this line has such a great shape.

Does anyone know anything about the steel – hardness?

I’ve been itching for a 210 yo-gyuto (yeah, I know the 210’s have the flower, not the dragon) for a while as general all’rounder, and this is now a contender…

I like it so far. It's very different from the other gyuto that I have so there is an adjustment to be made there before I can really say how I feel about it. Once I got it honed it's better than OOTB. The handle is a little bigger than I'm used to but I'm starting to like it the more I use it.

All of these are just my very newb feelings about this knife so far. I have a feeling that I am going to like it a lot once it grows on me.

That is one super flat and thin grind!

I don't think it as flat as it looks but I could be wrong. I do not have the knife in hand yet but I do have a different style of knife made by the same maker and it is very thin behind the edge (looks kind of similar) but is not flat ground. And the other knife by this maker is probably my best cutter....

Also, who's the maker Chuck? Looked like of like a Burke like Devin said, or maybe, maybe a Rader?

She cuts VERY nicely. All too nicely. Wiping the blade dry, towel got snagged on heel and she bit me. Took a beautiful little chunk right off the tip of my finger. Haven't sliced a finger in a Long time.... eh, at least we know each other a little better now. Finger has a bandaid, finally stopped bleeding, but doesn't hurt at all. Very sharp number. And I still love her.

I posted this question in the wrong thread last night (idiot!)-not too sure if this question warrants an entirely new thread (if so don't hesitate telling me) but I'm curious about the San Mai construction-I'm wondering how far the carbon steel goes up the blade. I ask because I want to round the spine more but don't want to expose more carbon underneath. Any thoughts?

DevinT
04-24-2013, 09:24 AM
With the stainless clad the core runs from the edge to the spine. It is about 35-40% of the thickness. On his KU stuff it doesn't run all the way to the spine.

Thanks, guys.

This is a 300 mm kitaeji yanagiba. I haven't posted other knives that I've bought (although I will post the 270 Gesshin Hide Yanagiba) because the other knives that I've bought are somewhat readily available and I don't care to necessarily show what I've bought.

But, I decided to purchase a Shigefusa Kitaeji Yanagiba last year after talking with a number of people, and, because Iizuka-san is getting older and production is sporadic. These really are amazing looking knives in person. I was actually quite shocked.

I'll likely not use this knife for a while though. I just purchased that 270 Gesshin Hide Yanagiba which I'll be using as my primary yanagiba. (That knife is badass. Jon let me use his once and I was totally hooked.)

Schanop - I don't have the other one yet.

I'm definitely now more interested in single bevel knives made by certain makers before they stop making knives. After learning from Jon how to take care of single bevel knives and sharpen them, I've begun to appreciate them more and more. I also wanted to purchase a couple of Jin knives this year, including a 300 mm yanagiba this year, but, unfortunately, it looks like they'll have to wait for the time being.

Very sharp out of the box, feels much bulkier than i had envisioned, nose is fatter , it's like waving around a Scottish broadsword.
Slices very good, I portioned out a pork loin & a pair of Tri-tips. No patina yet, I'm guessing the blade is coated, will pick up a pint
of Acetone on my next homeDepot run & give it a wipe down. For my next blade I've got to hunt around for a gyuto/yani
hybrid. tall at the heel. minimal belly, low tip & a more pronounced spear point. if there is such a beast

That does not ring any bells. Usually the ones with lower tips aren't that tall at the heel. Actually sounds like a santoku minus the spear point part.

That suji profile is badass. Nice job Mike and nice additions Son!

it is quite comfortable considering that the handle is actually quite shallow, It gives you more knuckle clearance. At first I thought it would fatigue your fingers holding on to a handle that shallow but, Mike makes up for it by making it extra wide so, it fills up your hand and gives you something to grip onto. I like it a lot, its very comfortable almost relaxing to hold. The blade is fairly substantial in thickness maybe 3+mm and is not overly flexible it has heft to it and the weight does the work for you. cuts everything like butter.

yeah.... I find myself going back to that thread and his webpage several times, saying to myself "no way, man. Not going to happen". Then he offered up that sale price, so that coupled with late night bad math I found myself going for it. But then reality kicked me and I found out that my currency app on my phone (and myself) had made a $50+ error, but by that time I was already in it.
it's not a "light knife" by any stretch. Got some great heft to it. Very solid feel, big handle, thick spine, tall where it counts and pointy narrow where it needs to be. And nothing sticks to it.

One of two Pete. I am with you on the lack of love on the Shig Western. I didn't love the standard WA on my 240 either - that's why I had Marko give it some love. Surprisingly, I don't mind the Miroshi Deba Shig handle though.

Nothing crazy. A 6 inch stainless sabatier boner vintage Abercrombie and Fitch that still had the factory edge. After a little interweb search it was apparently made for a and f when a and f was still just a department store in NYC. Though I could be wrong.

I was one of the knuckle heads that was bidding on it ;-x. Thought the max that I was willing to spend was a little lower than what it went for. I was really surprised when it sold for what it did. I thought I had it in the bag.

New paring knife from Scott McGhee of Guinea Hog Forge. O-1 and antique ivory micarta, 3 inch blade. Feels very nice in the hand, I'l post back a bit more after a week or so of use.
Shown next to my Rader parer for size comparison.

15371

It's an old one, made by Michael in 2008 when he was still a journeyman smith, but was in a private collection and is in new condition. The specifics are:

Type: Utility knife
Steel: 52100
Handle: Spalted and curly maple
Blade length: 6.00 in.
Total length: 11.25 in.
Blade width: 1.20 in.
Blade thickness: 0.17 in.
Item weight: 7.12 oz.

I guess I should ask Michael about the free sharpening, lol.
I really need a 12 step program. :IMOK:
