Thread: Masamoto 27cm KS slicer.

  1. #1

    Masamoto 27cm KS slicer.

    So i said I will post those. Here ya have it.

    Saya is shite. Absolutely. No pin.

    Handle is very nice. Tanghole also surprisingly neat.

    Spine rounded and polished. Choil little polished, not rounded.
    Blade one cm longer than 27cm shigefusa but edge similar.

    Came sharpened... I dont know if he likes me to add ES for free but I dont like it.
    There is some scratches left.

    Lol, saw the picture of the saya cavity. That's pretty funny.

    I too got scratches from the "extra sharpening" service a while back. Not a good idea.

    If that saya is friction fit, try soaking it in oil. My KS saya was a bit loose until I oiled it, now it's perfectly snug.

    I think the issue is that he got a saya fit for a yanagi for his sujihiki.

    Congrats on a great looking knife, mate!
    I'm sure it will serve you well.

    And the described level of service and effectiveness in shipping are duly noted for future reference

    Blade looks nice. Its profile is very much similar to its gyuto cousin, just not as tall. Agree that this saya is a piece of crap, but probably due to a coustom size where masa does not have any proper saya for it. My two masa sayas didn't come with a pin.

    I will make one anyways.
    I like the blade though. I just wish its clad but I will check cutting first before complaining.
