    You have some good-looking handles there Dave, I suppose you'll be receiving a Shig to rehandle soon. :)

    I really feel that I have to defend Iizuka-san's woodworking skill in this case though....

    Have you considered a petite Gyuto with height and thickness under control? To me it sounds roughly like what you're looking for.
    That would be a custom order though. I would go with Heiji-san...

    That can't be the majority of their western handles though? If not I don't see why they would be so sought after if the first thing one has to do is rehandle it, did you bring it up with your...

    I really wouldn't recommend putting a new handle on that one Peco.

    As they create their western handles just like their Wa handles with plane blades and chisels the feel and fit lands in another...

    Indeed, it's an interesting stone and I'd love to try it out as the look it has is very close to the new stock from the Tanba quarry with the strong blue hue that tend to be on the softer side of the...

    That's a Tanba Aoto. The cheapest type of Aoto there is and also the softest. Decent for producing Kasumi but I would never use them for transitioning to mid-polishers or any sharpening.

    Nice job. The "line" you want to bring out is the forge welding line. Keep practicing and you'll reach it.

    That's great for you JBroida.

    I am in all earnest baffled that you haven't heard of Ito-ura earlier or the history of the Sen in Japan. It's good that you have solid sources such as Iwasaki-san,...

    Looking at the great names such as Usui Kengo, yep they deliver them unsharpened and therefore at 80% of the price. There are a couple of few smiths such as Tasai that like to deliver their tools...

    Pardon me if I'm being rude but you think only Iwasaki and Iizuka-san uses a Sen? Heiji is another smith that uses the Sen albeit not on the crafts geared towards the mid-end clients and where price...

    It's actually much harder on a woodworking tool as the steel is much harder and is delivered unsharpened from the smith. What you linked to is also an issue that has been fixed by science as current...

    It's a bit like balancing a scale. In order to reach Ito-ura, the hollow has to be very thin in the first place - so establishing one after a large chip is my usual procedure. One needs to focus the...
