    apologies for the lack of proper photography skills and the messy room

    Nice collection! Photography looks pretty good, don't sell yourself short.

    Nice patina going on your Zwilling Kramer.

    Thanks guys, I try to avoid calling it a collection as that could imply that I might have a problem These are all functional tools that I absolutely need to complete my job The first blade was actually the Shun Elite Santoku, followed by the Hattori HD 270, and the rest is history! Missing from this picture is the most humble of my knives, the Tojiro DP 270 Suji that has been thinned (and used to learn how to sharpen on) and is currently the restaurant kitchen whore (used by everybody for everything, takes a beating and loves it)

    Oivind- The ITK is definitely my favorite, and it to my surprise fits perfectly in the Poplar saya Marko made for the Hiro
    rehandle group buy! But the one that is still used frequently is the Masahiro MVH: definitely one of the most underrated (maybe due to price?) unbelievably aggressive edged beater knives I've used!

    Jay- This was all your doing! I hung low for a while until you put that Carter up for sale, then the bug bit hard D:
