    Received this Ichimonji santoku profile paring knife as a gift last week. Really fun and interesting knife to work with. I'm surprised how well the profile works for paring duty. Patina provided by a case of strawberries.

    Zakuri Sabaki Bocho in Blue #1

    My real latest knife is Zakuri Sabaki Bocho in Blue #1 with 150mm blade (from JKI - thanks Jon ). It is a boning knife with rather substantial blade - the with at the heel is 4.7mm this drops to 3.3mm half-way towards the tip and is still 1.5mm 1cm from the tip. So it is a very strong blade with zero flex.

    Since the handle is very light the knife feels a bit blade-heavy. I recently got a D-shaped burned chestnut handle I may consider having install on this knife - it is slightly thicker than the original. I may even consider adding a bit of weight at the end of the handle to balance the knife to my taste, but that is to be seen.

    Jon warned me that the fit & finish is bait on the rough side, but I actually like it that way - a real utility knife for those tougher tasks. The handle is nicely finished though. I also find that Kurouchi finish fits the knife very well.

    I have to use it yet though - may give it a quick 'bite-up' on a 6000 stone as while the cutting edge is sharp, it gives rather 'polished' feel.

    Anyhow - here it is!

    Love my Zakuri from Jon and was able to get it a bit sharper even with my newbie sharpening skills. It seems really easy to sharpen.

    I love that Zakuri!

    My newest (Takeda 240) is a cutting monster...I love it.



    Needs some tip work and a much larger handle.

    His handles are always too small IMO.

    Nice chinacats! I would strongly recommend a handle from mhenry on the takeda!
