yeah... we had some of the new line there... i have my personal one and also one of the other people had a 270mm blue #1 kiritsuke-shaped wa-gyuto
Knives... Everyone should cut with a Gesshin Kagekiyo. Amazing cutters those. I can't wait to hear how they hold up to some hard use. I wasn't sold on the handles at first but now, I must have one. That said, there were a lot of knife rolls but not that many came out. I, myself, brought over a dozen but only two made it out. I didn't want to produce so much waste but next time, I'm bringing a case of sacrificial big-a$$ onions and potatoes then as for forgiveness.
I had a great time hanging out with the crew yesterday.
Thanks again Michael!
Oh and big thanks to Michael for hosting again! (I hope you enjoy the olives! My daughter just reamed me for forgetting them.)
Thanks for the pictures, Jon.
Looks like it was a great time!
"Don't you know who he is?"
I missed the gathering for a coworkers wedding, but due to the high praise I ordered a Kagekiyo (stainless) to try out. Will let you know what I think.
