    Withdrawn TF Nashiji

    This is not a show piece knife. It is meant to be used. A simple no bolster two rivet handle. The geometry looks good. Good cutter that you don't have to baby, can get razor sharp and hold a sharp edge longer than most knives. Think of the many knives that have VG10 Damascus that cost over...

    Withdrawn TF Nashiji

    I'd be all over this if didn't buy a sweet little 180mm TF nashiji with nice wa handle with exposed Machi. here recently. Great little knife. I have a soft spot for Nashiji blades & like the rough finish on the 180.

    Drinking Glass Recommendations

    For water use old black cherry glass juice bottles. Drink right out of the bottle. I ordered some nice green hand blown glasses we use at dinner for ice tea. Some times chill them for beer pours.

    Zonirushi ricecooker accuracy?

    Mine came with two cups. Always wash rice & use cups that came with the unit. Cup lines on bowl are for smaller Japan size. Dont worry about PTFE think danger is over blown by people who preach it. I have some ceramic skillets they conduct heat well as with nonstick never go above medium heat.

    Why tall knives?

    Did at work & still do at home a lot of chopping. Tall heels are good for that and forward push cuts. One knife doesn't do it all also enjoy light nimble blades used those at work too. Heard about Gengetsu for years before finally got one. White steel wide lamination line just like yours...
