    but its true, its very nice to bring something back to life that is old. i only polish blades that has pitting or active rust. so the chefknife is mirror polished for fun and the cleaver seems to be a NOS so i didnt do that one. i do like old blades with a dark even patina aswell.
    That cleaver is just this side of NOS. I scored it on eBay as part of a lot, involving said cleaver, a parer, a boner, and a chef's. The seller claimed that he'd bought it in an auction from an older women's estate. Apparently, she had bought the set in the 60's and had never touched the chef and cleaver. And upon inspection of said lot I had to agree. The chef is on the first page of Mike's new rehandle thread.

    yep, sure is. the Singatirin is an awesome knife, too.

    got this a few days ago:

    click to embiggen

    Heiji 240 SS gyuto from the pass around. it was a little thick behind the edge when i got it, but it sings now. i think i'm kinda done with gyutos, for a while. i still want to get a NIB 240 kasumi Shig, at some point, and i'd like to try a carbon Heiji, but i think i have my gyuto bases covered.

    the LBTOJ* just arrived....





    LBTOJ = Little Brown Truck Of Joy.

    Going to be a couple of days before I put this to good use...but F+F seems really good, it came with a nice carrying case as well as the best packing job I've ever seen...I mean really...the thing had a splint! Nice polish on it too...maybe the shiniest knife I have now.

    Very nice distal taper, and much thinner behind the edge than I'd expect given the sense of heft when holding it. Balance is just slightly in front of the grip when held in pinch grip.

    Welcome home.
