    SOLD 240 Matsubara blue 2 Nashiji

    There's a long history between the founder of C**G and the founders of KKF. KKF and the C**G forum are both the result of a split from a previous common community. As for me, Mazaki and Matsubara are both new to me! 😄

    Echerub's BIG knife blowout - there's gonna be something you want :)

    Just a heads-up for folks... I will have some jnats for sale probably late next week. I have to do an inventory of what I've got here first, and probably won't get to it until early next week. So, if you're getting some knives from this sale *and* think you might pick up a stone or two, let me...

    Oh, and I'm out as a chauffeur right now and have an evening class to teach later. That just makes me even slower. But I'll get on the PM's tonight! I promise!

    Echerub's BIG knife blowout - there's gonna be something you want :)

    I sometimes purchased with "just in case" in mind :) Folks, I'm gonna start tackling the PM's later tonight - I'm putting priority on the photos first. Rest assured that I will take things in chronological order. Please excuse my temporary silence on the PM's - they are coming through a-ok...

    Echerub's BIG knife blowout - there's gonna be something you want :)

    Whew. Hey folks. Lots to catch up on, so give me a bit of time to reply to everyone :) I've posted the first batch of photos. More to come yet. This is all the double-beveled ones, I think... except for the Nobuyasu nakiri that I remembered *after* I uploaded this batch. The next batch of...

    Echerub's BIG knife blowout - there's gonna be something you want :)

    Descriptive Notes: Chuka - Ashi hamano 220 swedish stainless - this is an actual Gesshin Ginga, so it's at the JKI quality standard. I just tracked it as Ashi Hamano because that's the maker behind it. Chuka - Devin Thomas 220 ITK - this is a rare, probably 1-of-a-kind chuka. Devin only...

    Echerub's BIG knife blowout - there's gonna be something you want :)

    Hi folks! I haven't been here for some time, principally because I had to stay away in order to stop buying any more knives and stones! So some of you don't know me here and don't remember the last time I had a big sale. On the other hand, some of you I know remember the previous big sale :)...

    Actual Difference Between Entry-Level and High-End Knives

    Prices on things have gone up even in their original currencies. Partly due to demand having gone up, partly due to material costs having gone up - I was told that was one of the big considerations behind Takeda switching to stainless classing, for example - and then yeah in the past half-year...

    Actual Difference Between Entry-Level and High-End Knives

    Whether we're talking USD$200 or CAD$200, there can still be some good knives less than that if we're talking gyutos. The pickings are pretty slim in CAD, of course. But USD$200? There are some good choices. Not "perfect" ones, but they'll perform well. If we're talking something like...
