    Knife findings

    That's why I wanted it but the price is wrong. Just look at the nakagawa blue 1 honyaki they have for sale too. Also like $800 overpriced. I almost pulled the trigger on the AS anyway but glad I stopped myself.

    Knife findings

    I want the ikeda aogami super honyaki but I think knifewears prices are kind of insane. If it was $7-800 cheaper then maybe.

    Could Kyuzo be Myojin?

    Just wanted to say, the only upside of this to me and maybe others; is that to know the actual makers name make it easier for me to find/buy more of their work. For example, I liked my kyuzo so much, I wanted to see what else he had on offer besides the hitohira stuff (and I was able to find...

    Handle is unreal. More please. And I like the clean- non KU finish. Maybe another batch of these with k tip or different profiles for fun varieties. Different woods too? I know fredrick also makes sayas....

    I feel lucky owning my togo reigo that reminds me of a's huge, 55mm height. Still craving that natural stone finish though. Maybe one day. Good luck on the hunt.

    This was with etching! What I did was etch and polish over again about 3 times. This gave a little bit more contrast to the hamon and kept the rest of the knife polished. Don't plan on doing a forced etch/patina on the whole knife and leaving it. Basically I tried to replicate the amazing work...

    WTB Kaiju - $2,000

    Well it's not discontinued so why wouldn't there eventually be a new drop? They have dropped a few batches over the years...

    Show your work! Uchigumori and co...

    I'm very much a novice (first attempt at a project like this), but took my spare spicy white honyaki to my uchigumori fingerstones, then used some diamond paste I had, followed by some buffing with automotive compound and etched 3 times in between buffing. Wondering if I should leave it as is or...
