    New knife day, and an (almost) complete Hattori KD family

    Hello everyone.

    Today is a good knife day! Thanks to a tip from a very helpful forum member, who managed to get himself one of the Hattoris I had tracked down in Tokyo, last week I was able to buy a 135mm petty Hattori KD knife, which I just received from the US. So the family is now almost complete:

    Hi Res - Very Hi Res

    Now, while I can rationalize the absence of the 240mm gyuto, thanks to the 210mm and the 270mm gyutos, I really must find one of those Hattori KD 70mm paring knives...

    In the meantime, I also need to find the courage to polish and re-etch the 210mm gyuto and the santoku - maybe next weekend...

    It is pretty crazy that after so many people looking for KDs you found so many. Have you used them much yet?

    Well, the motherload was is Japan, though the petty ended up coming from California.

    As to using them, yes: I used three of them thus far, except the 270mm gyuto and the 135mm petty. Both are still in their Out Of The Box condition, and will require sharpening before I use them...

    Looks really good. Congrats.
    Really nice family photo.

    I miss KD in my own collection.

    Actually, less in total than a Bob Kramer auction for a 52100 carbon steel knife (just to name one... )

    Frankly, I do not mind the linen micarta handles, at least not thus far. This said, does anyone have pictures of rehandled KDs? I am curious of what they would look like...
