    My Little Collection

    Great stuff. I'm willing to bet though that the Wakui is the best cutter from the lot

    Jiro Nakagawa - Part2: Performance Initial Impressions

    My pleasure. In terms of how they hold value, I think the best way is to go through the Jiros that have been sold through BST and get a feel for how they have held their value. Also I'm a Jiro fan, so my view will always be biased!

    Jiro Nakagawa - Part2: Performance Initial Impressions

    The unhelpful answer is that 'it's worth the price if you like it at the price point it's being sold at'. I don't think I can answer your question in yes/no terms. What I can say is that what Jiro produces and the way he goes about producing his blades is pretty much unique. In terms of...

    Migoto White1 Nakagawa x Kawakita Gyuto Review

    Well, your mind may be partially made up for you, because the Ginsan is now sold out. We ‘snoozed’ and we ‘loozed’ unfortunately.

    Migoto White1 Nakagawa x Kawakita Gyuto Review

    I have only tried the white1, so can’t help much I’m afraid. I would say talk to the owner of Migoto, he’s extremely open and honest about everything, won’t push any product on you and can help better than anyone in choosing. I do know he wasn’t looking to replicate what is already out there...

    Migoto White1 Nakagawa x Kawakita Gyuto Review

    Per mentioned in the review, the spine is about 3mm and as is mostly the case in Sakai, it stays more or less the same up to the laser beam that is the tip

    Migoto White1 Nakagawa x Kawakita Gyuto Review

    For what it’s worth, do some research on Nakagawa’s Ginsan. I think you’ll find that it’s the very best Ginsan in Sakai, possibly with the exception of Yamatsuka’s Ginsan.

    Is this Damascus or alloy banding?

    Per my reply to the DM, this was an auction purchase back in 2017. More than likely an unbranded OEM blade that Shigefusa made for Kiya.

    Migoto White1 Nakagawa x Kawakita Gyuto Review

    Reactivity: All I can say is that it took a surprisngly long time for the knife to actually take on patina, let alone react to anything! I think this is down to two things: Firstly I wipe the blade with a soft damp-ish cloth very frequently during use, secondly and much more importantly, the...

    Migoto White1 Nakagawa x Kawakita Gyuto Review

    If you follow my 'Japanese Knives Collection' account on Instagram, you will have no doubt noticed that I have been using the beautiful White1 steel 240mm Gyuto, made by Nakagawa-san (of Shiraki Hamono fame) and sharpened by Kawakita Hamono for Migoto Cutlery for a while now and I think I have...

    I think we as a knife community have always known that the craftsmen and craftswomen making knives in Japan are not massively well paid and that of the final price a customer pays for a knife, only a small percentage of it makes its way to the actual craftspeople. However I do not think we...

    Media ugliest. knife. ever.

    I’d like to think there’s some sort of divine reason for it and that my mere mortal brain is not equipped to comprehend it

    Media ugliest. knife. ever.

    I honestly thought my screen had a problem or the picture was pixelated. I kind if wish it had been. Can’t unsee this.

    Suita - regular vs sunashi?

    Aah, understood. Particles from diamond plates definitely shouldn’t come loose hence why cheaper diamond plates are best avoided. Other than that, as you’ve mentioned, the su in suitas won’t play a part in holding unwanted particles during sharpening
