    That's a nice set of tools. Not enough custom handles, though

    I'm not sure how I missed it before, but the patina on the Kramer is amazing!

    Is the cleaver a Suien?

    I couldn't agree more sir, we need to have a chat! I've been a huge fan of your work since I started looking into the forums long long ago, and I remember telling all my friends that it was perfectly normal for me to have just a few knives and kindly showed them the pictures of your knives; they would proceed to leave me alone at that point

    Tom- The cleaver is indeed a Suien VC, its been thinned down a bit and works like a champ!

    WOW. To me that is an awesome collection.
    Here...I'll post a nothing special collection. Too humble to start my own thread
    MAC Nakiri and Slicer, Shun Kaji Fusion Chef Util and Paring, Henckles Twin 4 Star II Cleaver, Calphalon Katana Santoku, Zwilling Kramer 8" Chef and 5" Util (the rib/brisket trimmer), Benchmade Griptillion pocket.
    The two walnut boards are from Ozarkwest. The small one was one of the last before they began having them produced in Mexico.
    Just got the Boos yesterday. That thing sucked up 3/4 bottle of mineral oil.
    The hunting knife is a Bowen Blades from WV. D2 steel.

    Cheers!

    Avishar how do you like the Tojiro DP suji? I have been considering getting one, but all my knives are a little flashier now and if it was a good performer I'd probably go ahead and get one

    Those Boos blocks drink up a ton of oil, more than any other block I've ever used! Back when I worked at SLT we had to put an entire bottle and a half into the end grain "tester"; interestingly, we had issues with them splitting frequently for whatever reason (we weren't allowed to blame the customer :P)

    The DP suji is the benchmark workhorse IMHO. I thinned out the 270 a bit and it performs like a champ, and can take a good old fashioned restaurant beating and still keep on ticking. I pass it down the line frequently, everyone uses it, and everyone loves it, The handle is a little big and some would say blocky, but I don't really necessarily find that a bad thing!
