    western vs traditional japanese handles

    Japanese blades with full tang are heavier but feel more balanced and controlled. Imo....full tang beats traditional Japanese handles. Try both tho

    My Humble Knife Collection -- What Should Stay, What Should Go?

    You have any knowledge of zanmai MCUSTA? I got a recommendation from a knife expert once but have never seen in hand. Are they worth the price premium they seem to charge vs yaxell/enso, miyabi, tojiro?

    Knife recommendation: LF smaller laser nakiri or santoku

    For the money/quality/fit and finish. Can't beat these sg2 offerings from miyabi: https://www.cutleryandmore.com/miyabi-mizu-sg2/nakiri-knife-p137429 https://www.cutleryandmore.com/miyabi-mizu-sg2/prep-knife-p137428 If you want carbon tojiro has some cheap carbon offerings...

    My Humble Knife Collection -- What Should Stay, What Should Go?

    Feels like wood...satin shiny. I've achieved this with very fine sandpaper so maybe it's just nicely sanded. I have a book on Japanese architecture and read that Japanese woodworkers can achieve this with sharp peeling tools.

    First three: traditional japanese style handled Tosa Japan made 7" blue #2 nakiri, traditional handle japanese made aogami super steel 6" petty, and then a cheat because I bought a shun 5 piece knife block with modern japanese handle materials (all exclusive VGMax steel blade cores!!) with a...

    My Humble Knife Collection -- What Should Stay, What Should Go?

    Well I've decided to take a working vacation this winter and check out the food and culture in Thailand! As per the advice in this thread, I have pulled my King 250,1000 and 6000 sharpening stones out of mothballs and I just ordered a Kramer bamboo sink stone bridge (which I think is very...

    My Humble Knife Collection -- What Should Stay, What Should Go?

    I actually have some japanese stones but have yet to really get into it. I was getting good at sharpening swedish and german axes but that's a different style edge and I use a hockey puck sharpener for that. I'm just so busy farming and processing food all summer I don't really have time to...

    My Humble Knife Collection -- What Should Stay, What Should Go?

    I hear ya! actually my parents are the ones that abuse them. I always wash and dry after use, but they don't even though I told them. And my mom chipped my nakiri!! However no serious rust harm, a little vinegar or rust remover will remove any surface rust. Or, just cut a lot of...

    My Humble Knife Collection -- What Should Stay, What Should Go?

    Yeah I'm struck by the hammered patterns of Kurosaki's knives. He has several styles that all look really good. I was thinking of rounding out my arsenal with a 5" range prep knife. I have this 6" petty knife but it isn't perfect for board work as my fingers drag on the board a bit. Plus...
