What exactly do you mean? The foto certainly isn't good. The heel is somewhat crooked, and not well-finished, and maybe a little overground. But nothing out of the rugged usual, right?

Oh, by the way. The thing in the first third of the cutting edge is a reflection.. the edge is fine, there is no chipping.

I think this is beautiful, but I really like the rustic look. It's a tool, not a jewel! :)

Maybe the pic is misleading, but it looks like eventually there will be some heavy thinning to do? Maboroshi seems to be the way to go, the Denka is so much more money...

I think so too.. it has its own aesthetic. Hmmm, it's not a laser, but not really thick either. I'll see that I can get a better pic tomorrow :)

OK, here we go. I hope that these pics show the knife's geometry somewhat more clearly. Like I said, it is not a laser per definitionem, but it is rather light and agile. One could certainly do more thinning in the upper parts, but it isn't necessary at this point. It's a bit difficult to get a clear choil shot because the surface of the choil is somewhat uneven, which leads to potentially misleading reflections. Unfortunately, I don't have precise measuring equipment :) Anyways, here we go:

My first Nakiri, thought I should try one. Almost bought a Chinese cleaver instead, but I like this 180mm size. It's a Yu Kurosaki 180mm, R2 with stainless cladding. Rosewood handle, not sure what the blonde wood is.

A saya option wasn't available where I bought that knife (jappany), and I keep my knives in a wooden drawer block, so I don't usually try to find anything aftermarket. Maybe someone else here can point you to a source for something generic that would fit that nakiri.


Also just got my Kurosaki sujihiki in the mail today.

Very nice! A sujihiki is something I would have a hard time justifying, given the way I cook, but I'm sure I'll pick up a few eventually anyway.

https://preview.ibb.co/cTvcmG/Full_Size_Render_37.jpg (https://ibb.co/isz3RG)

Lovely. Starts out kind of thick around the base before thinning out, but that facilitates a nice pinch grip. Excellent grind, edge was only so-so (which was surprising). I like the look of this series, which is aggressive and rustic while refined at the same time. Definitely worth looking at if you're considering the Takeda stainless clad AS. (Which I am... at least for the gyuto.)

Nice knives though, I've never used an Anryu, but they look nice and don't seem to get the love on KKF here that one would think.

An old co-worker of mine had a 210mm Anryu gyuto. Got to use it a few times. Nice knives for sure and congrats to btbyrd for the set.

I think the stainless cladding is part of why they don't get much hype around here. It's also a very competitive price range with a wide range of options. I found the 210mm to be a nice mediuim-weight/workhorse gyuto especially for professional kitchens. I actually like the oval handle they come with quite a bit too.

btbyrd
11-03-2017, 09:09 AM
It's been a busy month for me knifewise. Here's the Anryu among my big knives. From top to bottom, it goes Global G-17 270mm gyuto, Anryu 240, Yoshihiro 240 kiritsuke in damascus aogami #2, Tojiro DP 240mm Western Deba, small Takeda.

https://preview.ibb.co/d58dXb/Full_Size_Render_47.jpg (https://ibb.co/iMU7Qw)

https://preview.ibb.co/kGSGJG/Full_Size_Render_46.jpg (https://ibb.co/hSh5Cb)

Say what you want about Global; that's a hell of a knife for $130. But that value doesn't really compete with the Anryu, which I found new for $200 at DC Sharp. The performance and finish on the Anryu Aogami 2 is better than it should be for the price. The Aogami Super Blue ones were a bit pricier, but they have better handles. The nakiri and the suji both have d-handles, which I find perfect for those blade styles. But the ordinary factory oval handles are very nice indeed. I need to take the suji and nakiri to the Shaptons and get them gleaming.

The Tojiro Western deba had the best factory edge of any recent knife buy apart from the Anryu gyuto. Those were the only two that were shave-ready out of the box. Actually, the Global was too... Anyway.

The Yoshihiro kiritsuke is my only fully reactive blade, apart from a couple petties and a yanagiba, but it doesn't react to much. It's a total beast. It's billed as a western style kiritsuke, but I took a choil shot of the thing and the grind is so asymmetrical that I'm going to just call it a kiritsuke. "K-tipped gyuto" is a ******* mouthful. Here's a comparison of the Anryu with the much beastlier Yoshihiro:

https://preview.ibb.co/hRUWYG/Full_Size_Render_42.jpg (https://ibb.co/ng7JDG)

And from above:

https://preview.ibb.co/cZ3Enb/Full_Size_Render_44.jpg (https://ibb.co/e7en7b)

It screams through mirepoix.

Here's the kiritsuke with its fellow Yoshihiro Cutlery knives -- a 300mm white steel yanagi and a 150mm super blue petty.

https://preview.ibb.co/nPNNsb/Full_Size_Render_31.jpg

Their sayas are nice. I'm getting sayas made soon for the Anryus and the Takeda. I may rehandle the gyuto and honesuki while I'm at it.

Received a couple of months ago and have been using them steadily often and with much much joy. As usual with Tilman's knives, they are superbly made, the handles are perfect, they glide through food with little sticking, feel nimble in the hand, easy to sharpen, and hold the edge for a long time. They are Tilman Leder custom 190 mm Nakiri in Niolox Damascus steel, and a custom 170 mm Petty in Niolox steel, both with matching ironwood handle, black horn ferrule and nickel silver spacer. The Nakiri also came with its own saya, handmade by Tilman.

That is corect! We have a winner!

The gyuto is indeed a huge 270, but the nakiri is the 180 (a little over 170, actually). However, I think you can make any knife look gargantuan if you shoot it at an angle, from the tip. Both about 60 mm tall, if that matters.

Valgard, what did you get?

My new Masashi Kobo SLD 210. Thanks for all the info guys. I put this thing through a decent test today. Three 18qt Cambros of various cut vegetables for soups. Food release on potatoes was amazing. $225 shipped from A-frames AND it came with a beautiful chestnut buffalo handle and nice friction fit saya. Sweet deal if you ask me

I am looking at this knife for a long time. I really like the height! Can't decide to pull the trigger. I was always afraid that it is too laser-ish. I conclude this based on his 150 petty I have. That knife is so thin it is unbelievable.

But from your coil shot it looks thick. Can you perhaps post one picture of the spine?

Looks like a good robust middleweight, convex ground knife to me. If you like the steel and profile I think you should jump on it. Good luck with whatever decision you make.

Yoshikazu Ikeda 180mm Nakiri, Blue #1 (actually more like 165mm, as things are measured there from the ferrule). Ebony/horn handle. Got it because I'm evaluating whether and how much carbon vs. stainless I want in daily use. Super nice nakiri, either way. A bit of patina showing from first use on onions.

Yes same one, it is probably the best one put out by shinichi out there!! The keyaki handle I had on my original 270 years ago was junk. Maybe he was new to handle making back then? The one on this one is exceptional however. This one's a keeper for sure. Labor was letting me borrow it and within 30nseconds of using it I told him he's not getting it back lol!! A friend of mine also got to try it and he told me he wants to buy it off me when I'm done with it haha.

Yep, extra thin again. Seems to be pretty consistent with the last one. The profile might be a little flatter, or at least the flat spot is in a more natural position, which is nice.

The right hand side (when holding the blade to cut) does seem to be slightly concave (about 1mm inwards at the middle). It looks like the blade is very slightly bent towards that side. I imagine this must happen sometimes with large cleavers, having so much steel to keep straight. It doesn't affect cutting performance at all, and I wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't been holding a ruler against the sides to measure it for a saya. So only the collector in me is worried...

Really dig the hamon, very handsome knife! What's the difference between fuguhiki and yanagiba tho?

mauichef
11-25-2017, 02:44 AM
Fuguhiki is much thinner and lighter than a yanagiba. Originally made for slicing Fugu Fish (blowfish) into see-through pieces. Similar shape but more flexible. Sushi chefs interchange sometimes depending on personal style or preferences as well as type of fish and cutting technique they are using. But the yanagiba is the first choice for regular sashimi/sushi tasks due to its stiffer blade and greater weight which reduces the need to apply pressure to make the cut.

How do you like the Nakiri after the fresh edge? Same issue with the line knife (i.e. dull)? I picked up a Straub utility from the same place with that issue ... all good after a little time / attention but still shouldn't have been "that dull" regardless ...

My sujihiki have a messed up edge at the tip too bought it from the same place (Wal-MartButcher.com), I bet some jackass took it out for a test drive.
The nakiri feel heavy like a cleaver I will use it for carrot or squash I guess, I have a custom one on the way with a thinner edge. Good thing that most of us know how to sharpen knives, I can't imagine a typical home cook buy knives from this place that came with this kind of crappy edge. I'm still in shock that they actually shipped these craps to me in this condition.

I like the distinctive look of the grind line on those Ealys. His damascus patterns have been really cool recently. Agree with panda that the nakiri shape is a bit too spatula shaped for my personal tastes tho. Do you think the edges got jacked up while at Wal-Mart?

A really beautiful knife. I hope you don't mind me asking, but have been wondering after seeing it on the assorted media - what does the differential hardening do for pattern welded steel like this? Is the edge taken really far, say 65hrc+? Maybe I'll ping Robin an email too...

Thanks Jacob. Yes but tempered back to 62-63. Steel was ordered in w2 for the purpose. Lost the other billet :O

Takeda knife, that @Matus thinned and refinished. He also shaped a very nice a handle that fits perfectly the knife. It was also the opportunity to meet him and to exchange a lot. Great experience and extremely good work!

Stop wasting money on these expensive knives, Farbarware is reliable and cost fraction of the price, all steels are the same, don't listen to these marketing people.

Lay off that Walmart brand liquor. Especially when youíre on the forums. Itís gonna hurt in the morning.

Looks nice. I ordered an Akebono but didn't get the cool custom handle.

All the thumbs all the way up! I love collaboration knives for this very reason. So cool to have two makers aesthetics in one piece of steel

The profile on that Dalman is incredible.. I never would have thought 60mm in height could look so "right"
