Kochi Knives BACK IN STOCK
It seems like we now have all of the kurouchi Kochi knives back in stock, including my favorite 240mm Kurouchi Wa-Gyuto. We also have one very cool Kurouchi 270mm V2 Yanagiba in stock (not on the website)... it just arrived so there are no pictures yet.
Anyways, here you go:
Kochi Knives @ JKI
I like these knives, they get crazy sharp easily. Some of the nicer kurouchi knives around.
Jon, do you have any input on Kochi's kurouchi vs. migaki? Is there any performance difference or is are the differences purely superficial?
actually, the migaki wasnt in too high of demand last time so i brought in the kurouchi only this time. I found the performance to be very similar (though i didnt keep a migaki one)... the kurouchi did better with food release and was easier to care for. I have to admit, i also liked the look of it a bit more.
FYI, only 3 of the 240mm's left
