    New Masakage shimo petty (150mm) from Knifewear










    I really like it; light, nimble, sleek spine and very thin profile. Fit and finish is more then okay, handle well fitted, spine and choil not that bad, doesn't need rounding for my taste.

    Well, my photography skills suck. But, I promised some better pictures...so, here we go:

    First up: Devin Thomas 240mm San Mai Gyuto in XHP, Cocobolo handle, bog oak ferrule, mammoth tooth spacer.




    Next: Shigefusa 300mm Kasumi Yanagiba. Stock ho-wood handle with buffalo horn bolster.


    Itinomonn Kasumi 210mm Gyuto. Stock ho-wood handle and buffalo horn bolster

    Itinomonn Kurouchi 180mm Deba, again...stock handle.


    Delbert Ealy Parer with Box Elder, and green dyed box elder.

    Last, and most certainly least...
    Tojiro Shirogami 240mm Yanagiba, rehandled.

    Side shot...? I'd be happy to but I'm not entirely sure what you mean.

    -Brandon as well

    huh, that doesn't look too bad. Looks like 4" or so that is pretty flat? How thick behind the edge does it feel? How does it cut compared to others you've used? Thanks for any feedback, looking to possibly pick one up

    The belly isn't terribly big. In my opinion, it has the perfect amount for huge amounts of prep. I push cut when prepping mostly, depending on the task, so I find what little belly it has to be useful. I got the from Vinster, and he's a master on the stones, so it's pretty thin behind the edge. Factory? I don't really know. I feel like from the factory, it would be pretty thick behind the edge. The spine is super thick, and it tapers down mildly until you get down to about 5mm above the kasumi line, then it tapers pretty dramatically. Vinh thinned it out pretty well. Overall, IMHO, it's a great bang for the buck. New, they're about $220 from JNS, and used, I should expect you to pay somewhere around the ballpark of $165. Which, again IMHO is super cheap for the performance quality of this dude. My only qualm...which some people don't have a problem with, is the handle. They leave a little to be desired. Theres nothing in particular I don't like. They're just boring. I plan on having Stefan rehandle this at some point...after I recover from all of those purchases. I think it'll be a pearl then.
