Thread: Takeda: It's baaaack!

    Takeda: It's baaaack!

    Just got it back yesterday and used it today on pretty much everything I could. I was making short order of onions, cut through cabbage with little resistance, cut through 2lbs of mushrooms, a bag of carrots and a stalk of celery as it should.

    Comparing before and after pics, it looks like he thinned it a lot, although you'd never know because there isn't a scratch on it. Sorry for the crappy pics, iPhone needs a macro option, or I need to learn how to use my camera properly lol.

    Before:




    After:

    Lol I know my pics suck. I need to really break out my camera.

    I sent it to Takeda-San and he fixed it himself.

    Congrats. A quick trick to the choil shot is to make sure there is no contrast in the background. Would love to see a better pic, since it seems a dramatic change....he may have just hammered out a new one for you.

    I quite like my Takeda so far.

    Wouldn't thinning of that degree remove the kurouchi finish?
