    Top one looks like a kurimuki?
    How long are these?
    I sure like the lines on that Suji!

    the top one is unagisaki (eel knife)... the suji is 210mm and the katsuobocho is 270mm to give some perspective.

    How long does it take you to wrap a knife box like you do Sara?

    I gave a knife from JKI to my mother and she was in awe of the wrapping job (took it apart very slowly and carefully trying to figure out how you do it!).

    hmmmm I think it's under a minute? I count one day just to see.... As long as it's square and straightforward shape, it's fairly simple thing to do... It's my zen time just like sharpening for Jon.

    Those are neat looking. The bottom one looks like fuuuuuuuun to maintain.

    I hate tanto-tipped things.

    The the blade road on that thing is uniform and requires no angle adjustment all the way down, I'll give a to the maker.
