Aoko. Blue #1. Although it doesn't feel like any blue steel that I've used before. Hard and agressive, but shockingly tough and not glass-like at all.
Everything about this knife is pretty absurd, but the tip is particularly insane. If it was paper, you could probably read through it.
I really like the red&black handle on yours.

a Kanetsune 240mm western gyuto in 2N. i've been wanting a knife to leave at my mother's, and for $56 shipped on eBay, this seems like a likely choice.

It's taken a little while to come to grips with the light weight of the Kagekiyos, as well as the shorter blade length, compared to my Heijis, but wow, these knives rock.

Here's a couple shots of my new Shigefusa cleaver.
I ordered this ages ago, basically to replace my Takeda.
This one seems to suit me much better, so far I'm very happy with this purchase.
As luck would have it, it was delivered to Maksim's at the very day we arrived for the gathering in Denmark.
Good timing I'd say.

The board was something maksim had in the back of his shop that Pilkington polished and waxed up for me while we were there.
It is a big slap of some beautiful Canadian Maple if I remember correctly..

Thanks for all the comments guys!
A couple more shots of this thing then.
Not sure if these does it, but that's what I was able to do today in between other stuff:)

As to the measurements of it, it is 108mm*216mm with a total length of about 380mm.

For comparisons sake, the measurements of my Takeda:
95mm*253mm*417mm

It's not shown here, but the Shigefusa is a tiny bit thinner than the Takeda all the way from the edge up to the spine.

Indeed, you are quite right about it being a menkiri bocho.
From the descriptions I've seen various places of Takeda's chucka bocho, it appears to me they are around half a cm less tall than this menkiri bocho though.
I don't have one myself, but here's one of the places that speaks of them as about 89mn in height. http://zknives.com/knives/kitchen/ktknv/takeda/tkcleavervg210.shtml

No biggie, the main purpose of showing that Takeda with the Shigefusa was that it is the only other cleaver I have, and it seems to be a somewhat known entity around here.
Thanks for pointing out the diffs on them though:)

Well, I find that it performs better than the Takeda on two aspects, one, it wedges less, and two, it has better food release.
Although food release on a cleaver isn't all that much of an issue to me anyway.
In addition it is much lighter and less "weight forwardy" that makes it better for me to use for more than just a quick chop or two.
But as Mr Martell pointed out, they are really two different breeds of cleavers

Some sales sites show them at 90mm tall and one site says 108mm...go figure? :dontknow:

When I mentioned the height difference it was from personal experience handling the two types, the chukos just seem taller. No big deal though.

erikz
11-09-2013, 01:33 PM
My experience with Takeda knives is that they can vary slightly in height and length. His large Nakiri size differs on almost every website Ive seen so far. The lengt varies from 160-178mm and the height from 50-57mm. Thats the great thing of hand forged knives :)

This arrived about 10 minutes ago from Koki. Misono Swedish 210mm (measures 215mm) gyuto. I am extremely impressed with the F&F of this knife, which is comparable to mid-level german knives (a compliment for a $100 Japanese knife). In terms of profile and geometry it looks like it is going to be a killer. The profile is definitely French and almost indistinguishable from my Sabatiers. I've been using 240-270mm gyutos/chef's knives for a while now and recently I tried out a friend's 210mm gyuto and I forgot how comfortable that size is for a home cook so i decided to get the Swedish--bonus was that the 210mm was $50 less and didn't come with that God-awful kitschy dragon engraving (no offence to those who love it :D)

I received a 270mm Yamawaku yanagi, today. The handle is crap, as expected (I was planning to replace it, anyway), but the blade itself is very nice. It's a substantial blade, but has a nice taper at the tip, and a very good, straight grind. The ura is very even, and all the edges on the spine and choil are very well rounded. Very sharp OOTB. It will be a very comfortable knife, once the handle is replaced. I'm blown away by how nice it is, given the cost. If I can figure out a way to get a 240 gyuto from 330_Mate (I guess I should just make an offer at the listed 240 price?), I am definitely going to get one. I'll post pics when light is better.

pete that looks cool but I am confused as to what it is....

Neck knife sized utility knife with a pry bar edge on the butt of the skeletonized handle. I'm building a bug out kit, all will be explained when the final piece arrives. This is not marketed as a kitchen knife, but would do fine as a pairing knife as it is rather thin behind the edge.

P.S. The orange color was chosen to make the knife easy to spot if dropped outside.

New Carter got it's first workout for brunch today: peeled, sliced, and fine julienne a dozen or so purple potato on a hard epicurian board. These purple potatoes are somewhere between sweet and regular potatos in hardness with a really thick and sandy skin. Edge could still pop hairs afterward.
Hard to believe, but I think Carter is still getting better with white#1.
The man knows how to make a nakiri and this one's pretty special: I haven't seen a KU / IP combo in way to long from him.
The blade / overall knife is thicker and more robust than many that I've seen from him, but it's got one of the sickest convex grinds I've ever seen. Finish is also much finer and even then I've seen in the past.
Oh yeah, and the handle's kinda pretty too...

Here's another phone pic to tide you over till I get my gear setup and do a proper shoot:

That thing is drop dead gorgeous Justin! Whats the weight like on it?

It's heavy in way that feels very dense, solid, and satisfying. I don't have a scale, but it feels much heavier than my paper-thin Takeda Nakiri, and roughly the same (maybe a bit heavier) than my Shig. The shig is Taller, but has a more pronounced distal taper and partial convex grind. It also has a much larger / longer wa-handle (by Marko) and neck. So, the Carter feels much more compact and that it has a lower center of gravity. Balance point is at the first (closest to handle) kanji.
It's definitely what I'd call a "workhorse" class knife , which is pretty unique from what I've seen of nakiris. The sensation of cutting with it reminds me a my thinned Kato or custom Rader gyutos.

Congrats on the Martell, it's an all-time great; one of the easiest knives to pick up and instantly feel comfortable with, but one of that takes some serious time and experience to fully understand / appreciate all of the thought / nuances that went into it's design. I think that's one of the indicators of great design: it should just "work" and feel natural. That handle is hot too!

Is that a BRB in the first pick? Whatd you think of it?

Kochi 240 kurouchi stainless clad carbon wa-gyuto.

242 mm on the edge, 51 mm high at the heel. Spine and choil nicely rounded.

The kurouchi finish is unique - not at all like that on the carbon version. I tried to get a good picture of it.

The undisclosed core steel was ridiculously easy to get to take a scary sharp edge.

New Carter 7.3 sun "225mm" gyuto. It's a little wider than I expected, although it clearly said wide blade. Also it looks a little goofy at the heel. It doesn't sweep up slightly like most gyuto's. Gonna put her through the rounds at work tomorrow and see how it holds up.

I haven't tried it yet because I prepared our dinner for today yesterday (pasta sauce is always better when eaten the second day). I'll make a Tamil Curry tomorow and give it a ride :)

For now: its a really light blade, balance-wise it's is near the heart symbol (blade heavy) and about 70~75 mm at the highest point. Spine thickness is about 3mm at the handle and 0.7 at the tip.

One of the things I really like about buying used knives is that I don't feel bad about working on them first thing, even when they are already sharp and in good shape. I got the Gesshin Hide that I picked up from Chuck (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/14987-240-Hide-Gyuto-Blue-2) a couples hours ago, and since my employer gave me the day off due to the impending "snowpocalypse" set to hit this afternoon, I thinned it a bit and re-finished. I didn't go crazy on the finish, as I imagine I'll be thinning it again (today was to get a feel for the knife), and I certainly didn't put in the time or effort Jon did to get this (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/15251-Gesshin-Hide-Thinned-after-passaround), but I think it looks pretty okay. There is much more core/cladding contrast in person, even with no patina. Anyway, the knife is awesome! I thought the tip was a bit too high at first, but I quickly got used to it. This is the best feeling blue #2 on stones that I've used, and it gets oh so sharp. A really substantial knife, but it cuts great, at least how it is now. Will cut even better, when I have some more time, maybe next week (gonna try to match that coil pic Jon posted :) ). I think this is a keeper.

Did you remove the whole finish?!?!?! NOOOO haha that textured feeling was such a wonderful thing! I am glad you enjoy it. If you liked sharpening it and think the blue steel was great there wait until you start using it and get to see the edge retention! This knife is honestly one of my favorite steels that I have used and as some of you know, that is a TON of knives haha.

I couldn't help myself, I lightly put it to sandpaper with some water stone slurry. Had to make the knife mine! :) I just used it to cut up a bunch of root vegetables for a tonight's dinner (http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/12/bruce-aidells-pot-roasted-grass-fed-beef-chuc.html), and the edge retention is definitely great. I'll be working on the geometry a bit, the Kagekiyos have spoiled me, but I can definitely tell this will stay on the rack. I've never used a Watanabe gyuto, but this is kind of how I imagine it would be, from pictures and descriptions. I might be totally off base, though.

Isn't it blood that makes a knife truly yours?

… been doing some rehandles lately and cut myself about 10 times in the process. Not sure about blades, but those handles are truly mine :D

Mr. Nagao (Hiromoto) white 2/stainless clad 270mm gyuto and Mr. Shimatani 240mm wa gyuto in HAP40.

Just picked up the Shimatani this morning and used it at work. Pretty happy with it for the price, it's a real beast though; cuts surprisingly well considering how thick it is, but a little thinning would definitely be beneficial. Steel wasn't as hard on the stones as I was expecting either.

Excuse the crap pic.

Some of you may know that I just sold a Shun Reserve 7" Santoku. Here are some pictures of what I swapped for it. A KZ 6" in 52100 carbide with an HRC of 61. I have small hands and a small workspace in my NYC apartment so I wanted something in a mid size and I always liked the looks of this line.

He has an ebay store as well, though he doesn't seem to list as much on it. I'll post some better pics of the Shimatani later. As said, it's a nice knife but needs a little tweaking, I really bought it to try out the steel though.
