    Rdm, I just made a Thai Jungle Curry using the A-Type, so I could go through a variety of product to test out the knife out of the box. I minced shallot, garlic, ginger, galangal, lemongrass, chiles....

    I think this applies to the sharpening job straight from Aritsugu. Takeshi at aframes gets them unsharpened from Aritsugu and puts the edge on them when one gets ordered, before he ships them. From...

    Thank for the advice saltydog. The more I look at it the more I think that it doesn't really need that much. I was initially going to thin and convex the right side, with just a very small angle on...

    The steel used on the A-Types is known to be very tough, without being to hard or brittle. HRC around 59-60. This gives an edge this is extremely resilient, chip resistant, with incredible edge...

    Received my A-Type 240 Gyuto from aframestokyo yesterday. Four days from Hawaii to Florida, not bad. Here's a couple of pics on how it arrived out of the box, sharpened by Takeshi Aoki at aframes. ...

    That's interesting. Ordered mine from aframes today. I'll post some pics when it arrives.

    I did see that. What I thought the video was missing was the actual time he spent grinding on each stone. :bigeek: Nice vid though.

    It just seems to be the perfect workhorse knife for me. Weight, thickness, profile, and of course the famed edge retention. This will be my all round gyuto at work, whether I'm splitting lobster...

    I will probably ask him, but I just wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with his sharpened A-Types. All the horror stories have me spooked!

    Ohh and to add, I know that even with the edge that he sends it with, I'll be doing some thinning. I'm not looking for it to be ready to go OOTB.
  11. A few questions before I put myself in pain. Aritsugu A-Type

    Some of you might of seen in a recent thread of mine, I am looking for a new 240 gyuto workhorse. I'm pretty set on an A-Type, and I've decided to just suck it up and put myself through the torture...

    Alright. You guys have me pretty much sold me a Gesshin Ginga for a laser. Looking at my other options in the same price range, it just stands out to me. I keep reading too many good things about it....

    The Gesshin's look pretty sweet, and as far as a laser, I think I'd pick up a Ginga over a Kono HD. And yeah Salty, I think I'm going to end up with a laser soon, but pick up something a little...

    Lol yeah I forgot I was in the land of lasers! Guess I'm not actually looking for thin by J Knife standards, just thinner and a bit lighter than what I'm using now. Something 7oz or below, spine...

    Looking for something thin and hard!

    I'm in the market for a new gyuto, probably a 240. My go to now is a 240 Fujiwara FKM, and I love the weight (7.6oz) compared the the Germans I used to wield. I'd like to go lighter, but I'm open to...
