    What steels do you have for the gyutos? I know the westerns are in R2 (SG2?) but the wa-handled ones don't look like they have any patina going on. Do you have a preference between Tanaka's VG10...

    Mike9's idea with the jig has got to be the way to go. I did something similar and I just eye-balled the curve and did test fits until it was where I liked it. It was a real pain that way, in case...

    This man has such a way with words! "It comes to a very sharp but blunt edge" "with chicken, you're really looking for that nice firm color." Personally, I can't stand soggy colors in my food.

    I think so, yeah. They're sort of the well-known "designer" brand, if you will. So you'll be paying a premium for the name. Not bad knives though.

    Well I've been really busy so pardon my silence so far. I've had the Kochi for about a week and I'm sending it out to ThEoRy this morning. I have to admit initially I was unimpressed with how it...

    In the picture with the cracked up white wheel (about halfway down), is that a typical thickness of an unfinished yanagiba? It seems really thick!

    I also take such "scrap", in case you were wondering. No handle required! I'll pay shipping! :D

    Seems such a shame to see a beauty like that get thrown in the junk heap

    Tanakas are awesome cutters, but the handles struck me as pretty poor quality. Dojo is no-nonsense and pretty darn good in its own right.

    For your first one, I would grab a cheap carbon cleaver at your asian market. Shouldn't cost you more than $20 or so and it'll give you a good idea whether you like the style or not. It won't hold...

    I've got the paring knife and have no complaints. Not the prettiest thing ever, but it gets stupid sharp and not much use so it never really goes dull on me before I touch it up.

    Your major difference in using a gyuto vs a nakiri for veg prep will be that a nakiri is designed/limited to being used in a push cutting motion, where a gyuto can still be "rolled" on the board, as...
