Maybe they put the wrapping in the box.
Any way to make a buck I guess. It's a service that, given the nature of the business, should be free! Obviously taking pride in ones customer service doesn't rank that high over there.
Hey guys, this is my Takeda 270 mm yanagiba (actually a sujihiki, since it's sharpened two-sided, but they call it a yanagiba). I got it about 9 months ago and it has never been sharpened.
These are two choil shots. I hope they are clear enough.
What do you think of the profile? And is it too thick behind the edge?
Do you like how it cuts? If the answer is yes, then it's fine. Also, choil shots can sometimes be misleading.
Looks like it thickens too rapidly for my taste, but ymmv.
Narrow Takedas don't seem to have the typical hollow forging of their taller counterparts.
Thickness is much less of an issue with a protein slicer.
I get they're high volume, but you really need to charge for that? Or at least not refund it as long as the person purchases one of the knives or a knife of similar cost?
