    Hatsukokoro Yoake impressions?

    Apologies just saw this. Mine has poor fit as well, it is slightly concave towards the right side and not an easy fix. Haven't used it in quite a few months. The taper is decent, Goes from 7mm to 1.5mm. Wedges through taller denser products as expected. Also the flat spot on the heel is a bit...

    thoughts on Birch and Bevel Wrought Gyuto?

    I have the 250mm. Well made knife. Has a considerably long flat heel that probably runs halfway 1/3 along the blade edge. Has good distal taper, the tip is thin so slides well through horizontal cuts. You'll struggle to find an apex wrought iron knife that costs this much. When it comes to...

    Gesshin Hide Yanagiba 270mm. I am at my parents house for holidays with only 3 stones, a Shapton 1000, Rika 5k and a Hideriyama from JKI. I am sharing this because I am blown away by how well the bevel is done out of the box. The whole knife bevel had only 3 low spots which you can see in the...

    UPS Issues

    UPS is awful in the UK. Absolutely SHITE. Every single time I have had something delivered from them something goes wrong. The biggest issue was a stolen Shihan telegraph clad. I had many issues with customs charges. Drivers would show up claiming parcel cannot be handed over because customs...

    Simon Maillet work

    Excellent knives. Go for them. Super Underated. I have two knives, one small gyuto in 26c3 and one petty in 135cr3. Love both of them. I use them both constantly. They can take a lot of abuse and are very responsive on the stones. Excellent distal taper. I wan't to get a third one from him soon.

    Knife findings

    Got my Yoake two weeks ago and been using it daily. Mine arrived bent towards the left with a concave warp along the face of the left side of the knife too. I emailed the retailer about it but got now response. Kurouchi came scuffed in places but not rusted. I suspect these are rejected blades...

    Hatsukokoro Yoake impressions?

    From what I keep hearing, it is significantly cheaper in the states than in the Uk and to me it's not worth what they are charging, over here. Especially if it needs work out the box to cut well.
