A 210mm Maboroshi direct from Fujiwara Teruyasu is c. $230. The 240 is almost double that, crazy pricing structure.

The first time I saw and held a Fujiwara like this( Wa handle), I loved it. Even as a lefty. When I was told the price,
I almost choked on my coffee.

I just cut up some carrot brunoise, and I LOVE this geometry. It makes me want to buy a larger Fujiwara Teruyasu. Damn the F&F.

bkdc I'd love to hear more about the cutting. What did you cut? Do you slice and chop, or? How does it compare to other knives you've owned?

I saw this Nakiri listed on ebay the other night & quickly made it mine. Couldn't be happier considering I paid $16 & change. It is fairly thin, light & cuts well out of the box. Hopefully I can find out a little information about the maker, steel, etc...

And this went in the mail today and is headed my way. Not my picture but excited beyond words.

A 210mm Deba the small one is not up to large fish like Striper so I found this on Rakuten. It's a big, thick, sharp knife.
Del 150mm Petty in AEB-L. I put my edge on it and it's a real workhorse.
