Thread: You asked, you whined, now here it is: Kato passaround

  1. #141
    OK, Kato has landed. Thought I would post a few pics so you can see the new and improved tip.

    not the best pics, but should be able to see the difference


    from left Shig (240), Kato (270), Marko (225) different size knives so this may not help so much


    finally choil shots in same order: Shig, Kato, Marko




    Knife is right at 270mm, 50mm tall at heel, and I will have to weigh it as soon as I can and update. Balance point is about 55mm in front of handle--way blade heavy even for someone who likes it blade heavy--though I think a bigger handle would help with this (the current handle is a bit smaller than my 240 Shig-ho). Used it for dinner; scalloped potatoes with lots of onion and garlic along with chicken with mushrooms and habaneros. No stiction on potatoes or onions though didn't do the best job on the garlic (not as thin as I like) but I think that this is due to just being a new big arse knife and still getting a feel for it. Overall great cutter so far, only wedged a bit on rather large onion.

    I know this pass-around has been delayed a bit so I will try to get it out late next week.

    Cheers!

    I was thinking the same thing. Been watching the development, and would love to jump in on the thinner one if at all possible

    Maybe we should let the first list run out and see what interest there is for a second passaround

    Just want to say it is not thinner version, it is exact same version as old one
    The other one was just sharpened to much without been thinned, and tip was repaired without that aria was thinned too.

    I completely understand. I'll keep an eye out if you decide to start a new list.
