    Cleaver?

    Yeah he recently started making some, he has(had) two amazing honyaki ones on his site. Given his s grind they should perform beautifully and be super light weight. That'll probably be my next purchase albeit in damascus(poor wallet)

    You guys are nuts, about DallyMan. I'm right there with you with my modest 170mm Funi. He's working on the aforementioned clever in carbon for me. I have impossible expectations based on all of the knives I handles from him.

    Reminds me of:

    Without taking ANYTHING away from Robin, WTH do you do with 5-6-7-9 knives from the same maker? Do you have all different shapes and lengths? I can't even bring myself to spring for a second from him without trying a few other makers.

    Also, I wanted to add to my previous comments that his profile is really good, too. To my eyes it even looks kinda like the Forgecraft profile, with a smooth, almost-flat curve towards the tip instead of a flat spot + belly towards the tip. Makes it feel nice and nimble.

    I'm also experimenting with different sharpening routines to see if I can get a nice toothy edge on the AEB-L. Like JKI 1k diamond > white binsui > Khao Men. See if that leaves a bit more Jaws.

    I have 4 and 2/3 more coming this year. All are very different and two were free, I'm defiantly not saying no to free dalmans. I have a true single bevel pettysuki, a kiridashi and two hunters, one +/- 70 mm one +/- 150. I had wanted to try takeda but after speaking to a few people decided against it. Dalman when he started was compared to him and I had been lusting after one of takedas 270/300 mm giant gyutos so I had dalman toss me down a 285 x 65 gyuto that's coming for xmas. I also had him make me a 90/120mm petty in order to use up scraps. Depending upon what's left I may have him toss down a kawamuki or neck knife but that's a time will tell thing. One advantage to using the same maker 2-3 times is he knows what I disliked about his previous knives(all were excellent btw) allowing him to better meet my expectations as a client. This is different with off the shelf blades obviously where you have minimal control. I strongly recommend a second dalman, his cleaver game has gone up leaps and bounds since his first one he made xoomg and his smaller single bevel blades are a solid fun addition... I wish he had san mai single bevel I'd be all over those. He also has probably the cheapest honyaki knife on the market if you just wanted one to say you have one. Plus the guys a genius with material usage and his blades have strong provenence. I commonly compare him to rene redzepi for these reasons. His blades seem pure in hand and really make me smile with child like innocence when used.
