Quite the functional bunch here; 2 sanmai and two AEB-l
One is on its way to a new home
Wrestled a saltie for this one, quite the knife, exceeding expectations. At first I was skeptical of the choil but it actually works quite well once I get the right pinch grip. The FF is spectacular.
Pretty dang slick! Cool pickup...
can you tell me more about this one?
it looks like what i am asking marko to make for me. except in plain steel and slightly thicker spine.
Hey Anton, I am missing a certain Xerxes here Haven't you kept it?
nice collection you got there.
My quest to rightsize collection
Have rid myself of a good bit including most my Kato and Shigs - miss a bunch of them, but sorta maybe settling happily here, these are the gyutos with some that are out for one reason or another, missing from pic: are a few Denka, Don Nguyen, Tanaka tsubaya blue, Toyama, Akebono, Gesshin Kagekijo (big fav!) and some that are still with makers, waitlist. Pettys and sujis not included in this pic
These represent some of my best performers to date with 3-4 favorites for different reasons
What's the western to the left of the Rader gyuto, just right of center?
i love that burke, pretty knife.
What a nice collection!
Nice spread Antonio
That Ashi is smokin and of course I love the Miz honyaki!
I apologize for my ignorance, but could you name the knives in the photo?
L-R: Martell O1, DT Mystery, Mizuno custom 270 blue, Mizuni Sumingashi blue 1, Mizuno honyaki, Ashi honyaki, CJA honyaki, takeda, Watanabe pro, Burke San mai integral, Rader integral W2, Ikeda Sumingashi blue 1, Xerxes, Misono dragon, Carter, Raquin
Hi Anton - amazing grouping (as always) ... that handle on the Carter looks interesting - thoughts on it? Is it sized like a typical Harner or a bit smaller?
It’s a fairly special handle, made by the late Fish n Poi, original rehandle king; G Crowton RIP.
He somewhat kicked off the rehandle madness 7-10 years ago or so. The saya, no in pic also inspired many makers.
Quite unfortunately a lot of the pictures of his work disappeared with the pic hosting site snafu early this year and the original KF forum dying
Send me that ashi for the brooksie treatment.
You’ve got good taste in profiles!
Just saw this. I would if you were no so damn far!
I think WOW is an appropriate response.
May I ask how is the Mizuno suminagashi performed? Been thinking about getting one.
The steel on stones and board is prob top 3 ever for me, wicked
As a whole package it’s probably in my top 5,profile is not for everyone tho
There are a handful of YouTube videos you can look up
the best part of anton's collection is that he actually uses all of them.
Thank you for the info. I read plenty of positive review on this knife.
What is the issue with this knife that sets it out of your top three in terms of the whole package?
Dude, when are you gonna post a photo or two of the Kip???? We need to see it!
And don't post the photos from Kips IG. We want to see your photos!
Went solo for a full thanksgiving meal
Love those kippingtons !
OK, now ... How bout a distal taper shot
