Okay, I thought this was a fun idea. It was cool looking back at the 2018 bucket list and seeing where my tastes were a year ago versus where they are today. Also, making a list of stuff Id like to try in a years time and if my tastes stay the same or change. My New Years resolution is to give western handles a second chance also I quit smoking (4 days cig free)! Not sure where to start with western handle stuff. TX knives and Cody Paul both have caught my attention lately. In 2011-2012 I bought my first wa handled konosuke and I never looked back, now I’m curious about western handles knives again, both basic stock and custom handles. This might be a short lived experiment or a new facet to my kit. Time will tell. 2 unfulfilled tasks from my 2018 bucket list were getting a nice jhonyaki and a blazen gyuto. The blazen will be easy ofcourse. But finding a left handed japanese honyaki will take some research. Wish me luck. I would like to get a hankotsu this year too. What’s everybody else targeting for the new year?
