I picked up the Nakiri.... holy goodness. I am probably so far from doing this thing justice in terms of skill... but it is by far the best knife I own by a long shot!

    Not only F&F being pretty much perfect, the handle is nothing short of a masterpiece! The blade... I was dicing up 2 peppers this morning for an omlette, and I barely had to touch them before the blade dropped straight through (I think I need to work on the claw a bit more or a nasty pic may be soon approaching)

    At some point I am going to have to get on his list for a 240 if not a 270ish gyuto.

    Thanks for the update on the Nakiri. I knew when I was done with that one. It was gona be a awesome cutter! Just something about the knife. Hard to put my finger on what. I think its a combination of things that just worked right and the stars aligned. I dont know.

    Blessings

    So... back to the Kiritsuke.. After lots of grinding and working on this blade.

    I gota go back to the grinder and do a redesign! Knife making can be a cruel mistress sometimes! I was so happy with the first redesign and grinds.
    What a BUZZ KILL! lol

    Rock on.

    Well this one is at about 250mm and is about 33 tall. The tip is a little higher then original profile.

    And its CRAZY sharp. I totally understand why one would make a grind like this. but "making" a grind like this is trickier then one might think.

    Keep your fingers crossed. Im at exact same point where I was yesterday B4 things went south on me. So Im not gona say its gone end up as a knife YET. But I am sorta glad that I had the chance to refine and re refine this . I learned alot.



    Question for you single bevel guys and sharpening gurus. I realize there is at least one or two holes in my stone lineup. The one I am most in need of is a course stone to removing steel. Like re facing a single bevel or thinning a old knife. What would you recommend? A DMT or stones and what ones?
