    Heiji love

    A few months ago, my wife left part of a 150 Heiji SS petty wet and it got a rust spot. I fixed it and sharpened it but it scared her enough she decided to stick with stainless (Suisin, Ashi, Masahiro pettys). A couple of days ago, she decided to pick up the Heiji petty again. When I got home from work, she made it a point to tell me that she used it and "It was a revelation." Heiji SS rocks. Just thought I'd share.

    Isn't it funny that with all the high quality knives we've seen and used, there are still knives that make our jaws drop with their sheer cutting performance? I really want to try one out.

    Still my favorite petty. "Revelation" is right.

    This is funny. I was just telling Jon last week that I miss my Heiji and I am planning on buying a new one at some point. I loved it at first, didn't use it for a couple months (due to purchasing way to many knives) then sold it. Now I have to get a new one because I wish I had it these days....

    Heijis are insanely high end knives IMO. I've never seen or used one but with a price tag like that I would expect insane performance. I remember about a year ago I thought the tojiro I bought for 80 bucks was an insanely expensive knife. Now I own some really high end stuff and the Heijis are priced way above my current stash. I don't know if ill ever be on that level. I am extremely happy with things in the 200s rather than the 500s. You guys are really lucky.
