    Wow that was quick, I had a feeling the saya might sweeten the deal.

    I'll shoot you a PM in just a minute.

    Thanks David!!!

    Yep, by looking at the saya, even though not knowing the kanji, it is a Tadatsuna. But we have some very smart people on this forum...

    We expect good pictures of finely shredded daicon, David!

    will start w/ cucumbers, then maybe try some carrots. This is my first single-bevel purchase, so it's as much about learning sharpening techniques as anything else.

    David, you mean all this time you live without a yanagiba? We haven't been doing our jobs. Shame on us. If you get a chance to hold a yanagiba and study its shape, use, ect., it is a thing of beauty.

    I've avoided a yanagiba because, well, I don't eat fish. But my wife is trying to cook more of it at home (for herself), and I'm happy to help with the prep. I recently gutted a bunch of smelts for her, although I was not as fast at it as the guy in the akiri video (first time I understood why those little knives existed!). I hope to pick up a deba at some point in order to break down fish for her, and a yanigiba will likely follow.
