    New Takeda grind is crap. Old grind rocks, but his old knives, F&F and grind (besides bevel) will vary.

    Buying a low cost stainless chinese cleaver - analysis paralysis

    CCK 1912 is overpriced. I bought one from a chinese restaurant supply store in Monterey Park, CA for <$30 , mind you this was about 10 years ago. The steel was a bit soft, but nor a bad small cleaver. Plus, i wont buy anything from CKTG given their history. Masahiro TS-103 seems like the...

    mazaki knives

    Forgot to add, I really like the flat profile of this blade. When the knife hits the cutting board, a large portion of the blade sits flatly on the cutting board. Probably the most of my gyutos.

    mazaki knives

    Got the latest batch kurouchi 210 Mazaki from CKC and I have to say I'm impressed.
