    I've seen integrals from Bill, although they are very rare compared to his welded ones. I also saw an integral from Fowler a few years ago. He's improved tremendously every time I see his work (and it wasn't bad to begin with). I bet he could be talked into making one...

    I received this 270mm Gesshin Ginga White #2 Gyuto from my Wife for Christmas. Played around with a potato and I am amazed at the performance of this knife. Extremely minimal stiction, cuts like a dream and the fit and finish is top notch. Jon really has something going here with these Gingas, especially at this price point. Thanks!

    I live vicariously through your knife buying Chuck. I'd like to live fully through your knife buying, so maybe you should ship em to me before you use them. Starting with the Kato and Kagikiyo...

    The butcher knife is awesome but not what I expected. It is thick. So it will be great for things like popping through beef ball joints. It is not a large boning knife. I tHink it is going to be great for real butchery but not for more delicate work. I have a feeling it could take a beating.

    Agreed. I have one as well and did not find is super effective for routine cleaning, trimming, silver skin, etc. Like you said, it is not a large boning knife. But when I slaughtered and broke down two hogs a couple weeks ago, it got more use than anything else and was very effective. More designed to be used from getting whole animals to primals, not primals to portions.

    Exactly but if you plan on breaking whole animals, specially beef, I would highly recommend it.

    Bloodroot 9.5". Jury is still out on this one, need some more time with it. Came not too sharp, so tried putting an edge on it. Wasn't as easy as I thought. Steel is reclaimed VW Bug torsionspring at hrc 59.5 and handle is Guatemalan coffee bag from Jittery Joe's. The handle was supposed to be green but came this brown instead which I'm a little crestfallen about
