Post-a-holic night and my annual KU thread lol
Kuro-Uchi how I love thee, let me count the ways....
KU knives etched on to me many years ago and have not let go. I blame the early Takeda knives I saw in my early days for looking for knives. I vowed to get as many KU knives as I could from just as many makers for one really cool set... But finding these knives prooved harder than my attraction to the Hiromoto AS knives lol... After I disassembled the Hiromoto AS set I decided to keep the KU thing going... only to become jobless and ya we all know where that leads
With the chance of getting another job soon I have not been able to sleep, to amped... so here I sit posting goofy posts
KU knives seem to go in waves at local markets as well as here on online shops. But I don't see many write ups, or other addict like myself, J is out there somewhere I'd love to see what new and old hands are doing and with what
My current collection...
Carter Nakiri (my crown piece)
Takeda Ajikiri (close second)
Konusuki Usuba (best finish)
Watanabe Ajikiri (single bevel)
UnKnown Yanagi (gifted)
Looking at the list makes it seem so short after longing for these knives for so long. But I love each one for their own uses. These knives are not on the "for anyone" wall, they are on MY wall the family wants nothing to do with them lol Seems I get twitchy when they hoover near them lol.
I'd love to hear from fellow KU knuts
