Stuff to myself :)
I got these new tools for my self some time ago but i will like to share them with you all in one post :)
First very nice gift from my supplier Very old White 1 steel Kiridashi
That one is probably hardest steel i ever handled very crisp and hard take super sharp edge !
My own 2 Gennos Japanese Hammers special edition golden flower from Master Baba Masayuki.
I made the handle on big one from some wood from my garden :) Small one is from rosewood perfect for pinning razors
Here is one that is very rare !!!
15 years old Shigefusa 130mm hunting knife, steel is very clouded like on damaskus you can not see it on the picture.
From the looks it did not look as much, but in use that is truly amazing hunting knife !!
Grind is like on the sword very convex and can take a lot of beating. It holds forever sins i got it 3 month ago i still did not touch it up or sharpen it at all and stil it is razor sharp !
If you can get one in Japan old stock they run from 80 000 yen and up
This one is Yoshikane white steel Hunting knife 120mm with ironwood handle and unknown wood saya that i made my self, my first saya :)
Did you stain that saya? It matches the ironwood handle perfectly for being mystery wood!
Hehe yes, no it is total natural no stain or anything, i have a huge blog of that wood from old wooden sculpture.
Knife Scales came from Burl source
Nice stuff you got yourself :D
Very cool Maxim.
What do you use the kiridashi for?
I use it for wood working and open packeges with :D
Got something new for my self :D
I asked for new Mushroom knife and here what i got:
From Shigefusa Son, this one is just perfect i never seen a knife with such perfect grind period !! I dont even know how he did it but its just perfect very thin behind the edge but still very robust and strong knife.
Just feel perfect in my hand. It is made 15 years ago.
I think later i try to get Kato making for me those knives :D
I also got new Saya nomi, a lot wider version
I love that little fold out "mushroom knife."
funny parrot knife , nice looking one.
I also want a Japanese small folding.
