    WTS Yoshikane Nashiji White #2 240 Gyuto

    Originally purchased new from a forum member. https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/threads/yoshikane-nashiji-white-2-240-gyuto.55344/#post-843208 I just had to try another Yoshi and see if I could like it. Everything is perfect about this knife but the height for me and for that reason my other...

    WTS Hitohira Tanaka Kyuzo Migaki (U) 240 Gyuto Blue #1

    Originally purchased from Millertime1111 to compare to my KU version. https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/threads/price-drop-hitohira-tanaka-kyuzo-migaki-u-240-gyuto-blue-1.54798/#post-834576 I ended up preferring the KU version so this one is going back into the wild. It did not have much of...

    Black Friday deals?

    Double thick 500 Shapton Glass for 20% off at MTC is hard to beat in that grit range.

    Myojin SG2 240 - Impressions (Update 2)

    Ah, lucky you! KnS got back with me and advised that unfortunately the saya is out of stock at this moment. But they did offer me a small partial refund for the lack of saya being included with the order. As usual, great customer service from the crew over there.

    Myojin SG2 240 - Impressions (Update 2)

    I did last week, haven't heard back yet. Was curious if anyone else had a similar experience.

    Myojin SG2 240 - Impressions (Update 2)

    Did anyone else who ordered the KnS Myojin that dropped recently receive their knife without the advertised wenge saya? I received my knife a couple of weeks ago but was so busy at the time I didn't even think about the saya until a couple of days ago. My knife did not come with a saya although...

    Myojin SG2 240 - Impressions (Update 2)

    Got a KnS 240 earlier this week and used it yesterday for the first time. Considering how bad the packaging was and that the actual knife box was nearly broken in half when I got it... The knife itself was in good shape with no damage fortunately. I was blown away by its cutting performance...

    Knife findings

    Yes, I read a bit about it and semi-matrix steels and it definitely seems very tough. However, for a gyuto I feel like a properly treated SKD12 is more than enough for it's intended use. Maybe someone would entertain making a clever or a honesuki out of YXR7! :)

    Knife findings

    Interesting specs and testimonial from James. At that height and price point, I cannot help but compare it to a Yoshi SKD. I know the profiles are different and of course the YXR7 may be slightly harder but the Yoshi SKD12 knives are no slouch either and some of the best performance grinds in...

    Knife findings

    I completely spaced and forgot to weigh it prior but I would guess 5-6 grams or so. I weighed the knife a LONG time ago and I remember it being 276 grams for some reason.

    Knife findings

    I have a Mazaki 240 with a KnS handle on it that weighs exactly 271 grams after a healthy thinning (Perfect pinch grip balance too). It certainly is the most workhorse thing I own but it's surprisingly nimble.

    Naniwa Pro Adequate For SG2?

    Seems several of you have success with the combo, good to hear! There seems to be a lot of folks making a comparison of SG2/R2 to VG-10, I guess because they have similar compositions? I have a handful of VG-10 knives (Tojiro) that I have had zero issues sharpening over the years using a myriad...

    Naniwa Pro Adequate For SG2?

    Have done a bit of googling and was hoping to hear some feedback from folks who have attempted to use Naniwa Pro/Chosera stones for SG2/R2. I just ordered a Myojin SG2 knife and was hoping I could service it with my Naniwa Pro progression (400, 800, 3000). Being that MTC has the Shapton Glass...
