Yes, you do. Carter suji? Where are the pictures of that? What are we waiting for, fair weather in Cincinnati?i really need to get a pic of my newly re-handled Yoshikane kitaeji gyuto up there.
Also, do you use your Nogent very often? (It would appear so from the dark patina, though maybe you forced it.) I keep debating getting one, but now that I have a 240mm KS of my own (and am in talks with Jon about another 240mm), it seems like it might just end up in a drawer/on the wall. I just hear so many accolades for old (or historical in this case, if not necessary "vintage") Sabs. I also worry that I will end up with one of the not quite straight models that apparently ship from TBT from time to time... I suppose if it were too bent for me to fix myself, I could always send it to Dave to straighten out, sharpen up, and rehandle.
they are different. in terms of pure cutting ease, the Masamoto, at least as i have it right now, isn't as good, but the profile of the Masamoto is great, and it's very nimble for how long the blade is. i haven't done much with the Masamoto, other than sharpen the factory bevels, whereas the Shigefusa, and Yoshi and Kochi, are convexed and very thin behind the edge.How does your Shige stack up against the Masamoto????? That Shige looks so nice.
