what's up with the background? Imposed?

How is it anyway?
The background is a big fake stone. I switch up lighting position a bit so it is sometimes inconsistent.

I haven't tried the knife yet. Seems nice. I'm no expert on cutting so I'm not sure I'll have meaningful feedback on that anyway.

It's nice and pretty comfortable, but I'm not totally in love with it. It doesn't effortlessly melt into my hand, nor does it simply vanish. Nothing to actually complain about; I'm just more of a fan of simple handle shapes.

Got a couple new Takamura knivesÖ they're on the rightÖ with the rest of the Takamura family
HSPS Pro x3
Uchigumo rehandled by Dave Martell x3
R2 Migaki (red handle)
VG10 Nashiji (black handle, almost more like a tsuchime finish)
Chromax Tsuchime (brown handle, I "think" I remember readng that chromax is stainless clad A2 steel, but feel free to correct me)
The latter two are lesser known (very similar style/construction to the red handle series but with different blades); the red handle series is regarded as an amazing value laser, the HSPS Pro as a slightly more robust and refined version of the former, and the coveted Uchigumo as the holy grail of Takamura knivesÖ I also like the wa handled Hana, but since I had Uchigumo, sort of created a fusion of the two

Hi Milkbaby, thanks for your comment. Agreed on the aesthetics. So many Japanese Gyuto's seem so 'unfinished' which for me is something I just get past and lets them down. An example being the Kurosaki AS which I own. Great cutter, but aesthetics are just off for me.

I'm not 100% sure. I got to talking with him about knives a while ago and decided to place an order.
He's chef turned knife maker, so he spends a lot of time working on getting a good performing grind.
He also seem to sweat the details such as flattening the bevels by hand to make sure they are even and ready for thinning/sharpening.
High level of fit and finish.

The short answer is the details.

That's my $0.02

These look super nice. I've been following Trey on Instagram for a while now and enjoyed seeing his progress. I don't believe he's "flavor of the month". I believe that he cooked professionally and switched to stay at home dad making knives. So he can use his knowledge of what he feels is performance in the kitchen and apply that to the knives he's making. Obviously, everybody has their own prejudices and all, but the best knifemakers also experiment and go beyond their comfort zone, which is something that I feel he tries as well.

Me too, was the first 270mm gyuto and Japanese knife I bought. I ended up trying to dent in the sides of a pickle lid to open it like my old henckels and the blade just snapped right in front of the bolster... Lessons learned, was a very sad day for a younger me.

Better cutter, better edge retention.
I tend to regard the Hana as probably the best all round knife I have.
The Tanaka R2 that I have is a slightly better cutter, but the Hana is an awesome knife.

Have a couple white 1 stainless clads from him, and was surprised by how well they cut. Food sticks to them a bit much for me, but it may have been a fluke with the kuro finish.

hinoura has arrived. its dimensions are quite nice. feels really good. however i think it needs some tweaking to suit my preferences. for example i dont like wide bevels, going to round the shoulders, and probably sharpen out the slight bit of belly it has toward the front. handle, f&f are excellent. this knife reminds me of shiro kamo AS, but way more refined and steel much more to my liking, cuts similar as well. i prefer highly asymmetric so i'll be adjusting the grind a bit. so my initial impression is i would call this a project with HUGE potential.

question for those of you with a lot of KU experience, is it normal for the KU line to be what seems to me like 5mm above the actual shoulders?

This was a special order from Shosui thru Tosho. My first knife was stock and a lemon, so when I sent it back they were actually placing an order and asked what I wantedÖ I said 270 presuming that large was 270 not knowing it's actually a range. This is exactly 270 and pretty nice.

To each their ownÖ I really like this handle in terms of looks and find it a good fit for the KU blade. Of course customs aren't for everyoneÖ a burnt chestnut would be neat too.

what steel is the damascus cleaver?

Unfortunately I donít know, at the store they only told me it is the best stainless steel they can get their hands on, but they wouldnít tell me what steel. All I know is that they made their knives in house in a small workshop, at a good price too.
