    Toyama

    Maxim- can you expand on your write up on this maker? I have both a gyuto and a suji and am very impressed with both. I'd like to know more about him.

    Thanks, Pesky

    I like the look of the Toyamas, definately on my list.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for an answer from Maksim here, he hasn't logged in to KKF since January. Might be worth an email.

    I'm curious as well. Very impressed with the 270 gyuto I picked up.

    YES!!! Now you won't ask for me to sell mine anymore


    About Toyama, I've read that there is an apprentice relationship with Watanabe going back several generations. Suppose that explains the similarities.

    Nope! That was a Yanagiba lol. I still need Gyutos in 240 and 270.

    You know it needs a good home.

    Do you know why he hasn't posted for nearly a whole year?
    Don't drink out of ornamental ponds in Tiergarten. You will get sick.

    Have been thinking the same thing for a while. Maxim is like a ghost these days, its too bad cause this forum really values his insight.

    He's an original OG Knut.
