So, I keep seeing all these Catcheside knives just sitting on BST at great prices. What gives? I only have one, a Forged Geometry Plus 180 nakiri I got a few months ago from @thebradleycrew, but it's awesome. The lack of stiction and food release is really great, and at the same time the food separation somehow manages to be excellent. It sharpens super easily, and yet I seem to be able to restore the edge immediately with 2 passes on a strop. I think it responds better to the strop than any other knife I've owned. It's reactive, but not overly so, and the contrast of the patina on the core vs the patina on the cladding is really pretty, especially with the nickel layer in between. (Doesn't show up so much on the old pic below. Maybe I'll try to take some new ones later.) I just put in for a petty from his new Forged Geometry batch, due by February, and I can't wait. Probably will have to get a gyuto at some point too, but I have this weird thing about owning at most one knife from each maker, so we'll see what comes of all of this. Anyone else have some thoughts to share? Any opinions are welcome.
