    Suisin Dreamcraft ken-yanagi, 210 wa-petty, TKC gyuto

    This is the last one, honestly . Sorry for cluttering up the forum, lol. But hey, lots of good knife pictures.

    The first one is a custom 330mm Suisin Dreamcraft kensaki yanagi in special white steel. It has a mirror finish above the shinogi line, and the yew handle with two horn ferrules. Has a saya. Great condition.
    The blade was forged by Togashi Kenji, and is made of what they called shironiko A - basically a White2 steel with more carbon content than normal White2 but less than White1 (so it's like white#1.5?). It gets very sharp, much like white1. I have used it, but not hard. It has some nice blue iridescent patina below the shinogi line.
    I ordered this one direct from Suisin.
    Kensaki yanagi - $599 shipped CONUS

    The next knife is a Suisin 210mm wa-petty (INOX honyaki line) with saya. I used it to finish melons and pineapple since it's thin and maneuverable but still long. Almost a sujihiki. Very light.
    Petty - $140 shipped CONUS

    The last is a 270mm TKC gyuto. It's the mystery steel that won people over for years, in a good length. It's semi-stainless so there is some coloration as you can see below, but no strong patina. The spine and handle has been rounded so it is very comfortable. Good condition.
    Gyuto - $160 shipped CONUS

    Gosh Nathan, where were you two weeks ago. The money I just spent would have went to you.

    Ya, I've gotten like 3 requests about the petty, but the other ones will likely be sitting around for a while.
    There's a sujihiki and mioroshi still available, too, yall, haha.

    This is the best gyuto for the money. Ichimonji's quality is great and so is the fit and finish. I am contemplating getting this, even though I have the same exact knife, other than a custom handle and a reprofiled choi. Forget all the other flavor of the month gyuto. This is the best thing, even for some gyutos north of $500. Someone gotta pick it up for this price.
