    Watanabe pro 180mm Nakiri, is it still worth it at today’s pricing

    yep, it beats my 180 Wakui, the only negative about it is very reactive cladding. left it on cutting board for 2 minutes and rust already form.

    MAC Pro vs Masamoto VG vs Takamura Chromax vs Kato VG-10

    Yes, It is a Takamura, just Rebranded. I thought it was supposed to be more expensive. But I think they change their prices.

    MAC Pro vs Masamoto VG vs Takamura Chromax vs Kato VG-10

    I see, here in Knifewear(Canada) there are some in stock. Or you could get the rebranded one like Hitohira TP. But, Chromax is the best bang for the money, and you will not regret it. I have compared it between the Chromax and R2, I don't see the difference in edge retention. I have cut...

    Morihei Hishiboshi comparison to Naniwa and Shapton?

    Help me Choose a 210mm Gyuto from Mizaki, Yoshikane, Wakui, and Hinoura

    All Sanjo makers and all makers are Ex-Yoshikane or Have Apprentice in Yoshikane. I have all (kinda.. some are 240 version and other types) except the Yoshikane. In terms of performance, hands down Hinoura. In terms of ease of use, Mazaki and Wakui but the Mazaki cladding is a *****, it reacts...
