    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.

    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

    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

    I think WOW is an appropriate response.

    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?
