    Pairing, Petty, Hankotsu, and Ceramic Chef

    Going to thin the herd a bit to remove redundancies and fund other purchases.

    Miyabi 5000S 90mm sheeps foot pairing knife
    German steel 58hrc Japanese shape. Comfortable D shaped handle for righties. Never really sees any board work, the only marks on it are from hanging it up on a magnet.

    Henckels Miyabi 5000S 160mm Petty
    Same German steel 58hrc Japanese shape combination in the 5000S line. D shaped handle for righties again. Very comfortable. Again, only barely visible blemishes from magnet contact.

    Sakai Takayuki Grand Cheff Hankotsu 150mm
    Sweedish stainless steel, basically AEB-L hardened to 58hrc. This one has seen some use. I've boned out many strips, poultry, even used it as a utility etc. Haven't used used it in about a year since I got Salty's old carbon Misono hankotsu. Learned to sharpen hankotsu on this one years ago so it's gotten some rookie scuffs on it. I could buff those to satin if requested though. Just put a killer convex edge on it so it's ready for whatever. It's a solid workhorse that you won't feel bad about abusing in the least. A couple people expressed interest in this one so they can have first crack at it if they still wish.

    Kyocera Kyotop "Damascus" 6" Advanced Ceramic Chef Knife
    If you are going to buy a ceramic knife, I think this line is the best. The advanced ceramic they use is extremely hard, I think they pressure bake it twice in increasing temperature and pressure to achieve this. Hence the "advanced" labeling. The Damascus ladder pattern is just for show but it does look hella cool. The first thing I ever cut with this knife was a carrot, a second later and the next thing I cut was my fingernail completely off. What a dumb-ass. The factory edge was screaming sharp obviously and I used it in the rotation on fruit and veggie detail for about a year. Since then it's just been a drawer queen. I've put an ok edge back on it with diamond plates which still works well on fruits and veggies but it could use a trip back to the factory to restore it back to new condition.

    I love the "Maru" profile and the geometry on these - my Konetsune is a great working knife and really I have no idea why people complain about these - enjoy!!

    Nice of you to pass it on Mike9. Yet another example of coolness on KKF.
    Didn't someone recently accuse us of "Jknife snobbery" and other crap I won't dredge up to derail the thread....
    Some really good deals from Rick too.
    Good luck on the sales!

    That's OK - I consoled myself with a new MAC SB-105 bread knife - $89 + free shipping was a no brainer.

    I'm going to add another item here.

    Global G-19 270mm flexible filet knife.
    It's basically a flexible suji. Used it on a ton of stuff from salmon, halibut to skate wing. Works great on smaller fish like grouper or snapper too. I took this one out of my rotation about 2 years ago when I started using Mioroshi on fish and now I use Deba as well so this thing has just been sitting at home forever now. Some scuffing on the face from an intern who thought it was a good idea to practice sharpening my 70/30 blade with a 50/50 bevel. I fixed the bevel but never bothered to buff the whole blade out.
