Thread: Konosuke HD pron.

    Konosuke HD pron.

    Well, after a lot of internal debate I finally pulled the trig on a Konosuke HD with the upgraded ebony/marbled horn handle. First thing out of the box I lightly sanded the:

    -octogon edges (later I oiled with tung and let it dry overnight + buffed in the AM)
    -machi edges
    -Choil as it tapers to the edge (it was already eased at the top but was pretty sharp as it went down)
    - I also added a piece of leather in the saya pin

    Then I took it to a 1000 + 4000 + 8000 glasstones + strop w/ Chromium oxide to finish. I oiled the handle and went to sleep.

    Today I took it to work I knew the performance was going to be a step up from my Gesshin Ginga (which is a very solid performer), but when I hit my first red pepper with the edge and it slid right felt like the pepper had been replaced by...I dunno, a super-rotten pear? I continued to grin like an idiot all shift, blazing through my mise en place with calm, fluid strokes. I know it sounds pretty silly, but it was like nothing I've felt before with a kitchen knife..just awesome for lack of a better word. Enough blabbing, here's the pics!

    I think that was the right choice, given what you were looking for.
    Beautiful knife, it will serve you well no doubt.

    Nice, looks almost exactly like mine except I chose a ferrule that had some brown streaks on one side to throw off the symmetry.

    However my says is in really ugly dirty condition....haha

    My pics suck so these would be the webcam girls of the knife porn world.
