    WTB Migoto White #1 240mm Gyuto (gen 1)

    I was lucky enough to receive one to test when Migoto first started this line and I can say it is superb. I haven’t tried the newer ones but if they are half as good as the first batch, then they are also fantastic blades. GLWB

    Kato Kurouchi vs. Kasumi

    Very simple reason; There are far less KU Katos around. The usual sources of these blades also price them higher, so the KUs end up at the price they’re at

    A Yoshiaki Fujiwara (Kato) Collection

    As it has been pointed out, the Shinpei Kato baldes are the oldest. As far as the blades by Kato-san himself, I believe the shortest yanagiba is the oldest.

    I was fortunate enough to figure out exactly what I liked and concentrate on it early on when I started this hobby 😅

    That’s a tall petty/very short gyuto. Handle is off because it needs some work. Good eye!

    A Yoshiaki Fujiwara (Kato) Collection

    The gigantic deba is made by Kato-san’s uncle. Here it is: Deba I don’t have photos of all the dammys at hand, but here’s what I could dig up that’s got some clarity. Here are the 210s (dammy and Kikuryu): Here are some of the 240s: And yes, I know I’m the king of terrible photography 🤦🏻‍♂️

    A Yoshiaki Fujiwara (Kato) Collection

    Thanks everyone and apologies for the horrible photo - by the time I had finished taking the knives out, I had run out of daylight and it’s impossible to take a decent photo with spot lights. I’ll try to take an updated photo with proper lighting if I ever get the house free of a toddler for...

    Knives that make you go WHOA from the first cut!!

    Everyone will have a WHOA moment when they cut with a Kato for the first time; Still get the whoa when cutting with a Kato. Honourable mentions to: * Takamura Uchigumo 240mm * Sakai Takayuki Ginsan 270mm * Kenji Togashi , sharpened by Tosa Blue1 Honyaki Gyuto (Sakai Takayuki via KnS) * Denka...

    WTS 240mm Honyaki White Steel Gyuto, Ebony Handle and Saya

    Aframes isn’t misleading anyone. The original Tesshu line blades from 6 or 7+ years ago were made by Shiraki-san himself. Those blades were sold out a very long time ago. Since then Nakagawa-san has been making Shiraki hamono’s blades and has recently setup a shop under his own name.

    WTS 240mm Honyaki White Steel Gyuto, Ebony Handle and Saya

    This looks like a Shiraki Hamono (Nakagawa made) honyaki from aframes. I know the blue1 honyakis from that run had a stamp, maybe the white steels didn’t
