I picked up a one/two punch. An oder Regent Sheffield 10" chef and a sweet, large carbon fork - something I really do need. Handles are already off, spine/edges rounded, fork sharpened, shined and I forced a patina on both today. Here is before -
Here is another Shigefusa I just received from Maksim at JNS.
It is a 300mm Yanagiba Damascus.
I've only just done my first Sushi-dinner with it, and it did not dissappoint;)
A leftie Shig???? I had no idea...
Yeah, a Shigefusa can be made the right way;)

From other makers and vendors there seems to be a 50% markup on a leftie, but not on this one..
If Hendrix could take a righthanded guitar and flip it and string it upside down, why cant you knife-lefties do the same and put the edge on the spine? :rofl2:
Joining the Forgecraft club--along with an Old Hickory and Regent. Wasn't planning on this many, but got them in lots on sale, so what's a girl to do?
You did what you had to do. Go big, or go home. :)

Wow that chef's has more steel left on it than any other I've seen. Aside from the rust, it looks almost new.
What's a girl to do??? Why buy a drill press of course. Maybe pick up a sander too while you're at it. Welcome to the dark side . . . make two handles and call us in the morning - :lol2:
12" dexter green river butcher knife, I needed something a bit bigger to take apart the Tunas we've been getting, here it is next to my 240 Shig. I'm pretty happy for 42 bucks :)
