    Teruyasu Fujiwara Gyuto Denka 240 mm + Ebony handle with buffalo horn ferrule

    I have both Denka and Takeda AS. Though I love my Takeda, they are no way comparable to a Denka. You are making the right choice to go with a Denka.

    Name that one most underrated knife

    Ken Kageura (retired) knives. Some don't like them as they are a little fat but ascetically, one of the most beautiful knives I have used. Beauty is subjective but in my opinion they are more beautiful than a River Jump or dare I say, a Shig. The beauty is understated and humble.

    WTB Masakage Kujira 210 gyuto

    I have a couple 180 and a 240 but I don't think I can part with them. As you probably know, he makes his own damascus out of recycled iron like parts from a WWII battleship. I have never seen a more beautiful patina. Under certain light and angle you cannot see any then with indirect natural...

    Show us your Steak Knife

    Takeda AS Bunka converted to a Steak Knife Took me three days on a 400 grit stone to reshape the blade. I will have to fine tune the grind as I use it.

    Pros/cons of a polished blade?

    Does the patina on a mirror finish differ? In my limited experience, the higher the grit polish on a reactive steel, the more blue to purple end of the colour spectrum the patina seemed to get.

    That is a great price for the Denka Petty. I have one and is one of the best cutters I have ever tried. GLWS
