    Best Blue Steel Honyaki

    My favorite (and sadly only one left in my kit) is my Hide. I really do miss my Ittetsu (not blue though) and mizuno. There are some other great white steel ones too.

    Well, I guess I now have to look up how to post a photo to show you I’m not joking. However, when it comes to knives, I feel like you should trust me haha...

    Sexy

    I’m glad to see you still have that one. If you plan on letting go of any of those DT’s let me know. (I should get first dibs haha)

    mazaki knives

    Hey, no worries. Not sure it’s like wearing a shirt inside out but everyone has their own reasons. I just put it out there since I am a lefty and have had a severe gyuto obsession for about 10 years and owned lots of righty d handles. No tools or glue needed for most. Just takes a wood block. I...

    mazaki knives

    Have you ever used a right handed D handle as a lefty? I dont find it to be an issue with a pinch grip on a gyuto. You can also try to flip the handle yourself. I’ve done in a few times before on knives in this ballpark where I didn’t want to pay for a handle upgrade. It worked well for me.

    El Idea Chicago 12/16

    Alright, I am back from the dead and have been living in Chicago for 2 years so I figure I'll add a few that I think got missed on the lists. GT fish and oyster, Sunda (good food but kind of a scene), Fat Rice is a good option, Since you mentioned Donuts... Do-Rite donuts and Stan's are some...

    Caring for a Japanese knife for normal people?

    I do agree with most of this things you said except for this. A normal steel will NOT cause ANY problems to a knife. Is it the best thing to use? No, not at all. Sharpening, stropping or a ceramic steel are all better options! But no, a traditional steel will not damage your knives in any...

    Looking for a first gyuto, 200$ and below, 210mm hammered carbon steel

    I agree with the poster above that a Kochi is an awesome knife! Another great option is this one! It is in the for sale threads here and comes with a great custom handle on it.... http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/15809-FS-Yoshikane-SKD-240 -Chuck Edit: I noticed you put...

    fantasy football league for knife knuts

    I am assuming you have not heard of Peyton Manning? Google him.. haha just kidding around. I had Cam Newton and also got Foles in free agency. My league was crazy... Brees was the 4th overall pick (by a SD fan). Seatle defense in the second round... Just a crazy draft. Looks like today could...

    8 3/4" Mareko Maumasi "Chef's Knife"

    Awesome! Glad to hear you like it! I hope to hear an update about your opinion on the knife in a little while. One question. Just for other people as well... The choil shot on the rader is a bit misleading right? On my raders it has that upswept part to make it look real thick from the...

    Gyuto 210 narrow down/rec

    Bahamaroot, do you own all of those knives? I have not heard any reviews of three of those knives.. I think the Hiro AS is a pretty good option for a starting knife but it is western handled. For wa-handled knives... JKI has a new budget knife that I got to look at when I was at the store...
