How deep were those overgrinds if I may say so? How do you deal with them? Will they eventually affect the profile?
These knives are... They're ok... :tease::rofl2::bigeek:
Seriously, let me know if the deal falls through, I'd take them!
Wait a second, these are MINE already, my preciousssssssssses!!! :viking:
Wood came from Myron @ Dreamburls, btw.
Dave, I had high expectations and I can tell already, only from looking at the pics, that you have exceeded them! I absolutely LOVE how these 2 cuties turned out!!! THANK YOU!!!
you have no idea how beautiful these are when you hold them in your hands...Here's two Hiromotos that have been gone over top to bottom. They're headed to Austria.
A couple of things to note....
1. The koa is killer. The pictures look OK but in real life the handles have such nice movement and character.
2. The gyuto had twice as much cladding on the left side than the right as well as a slight over grind on both sides in the kanji section. The overgrind is an issue that I've seen off and on over the years (mostly on the right side under the kanji) but the left side being thick is a recent (this year?) situation I've been seeing rather consistently. This was a brand new knife from Japan.
Thanks JimThat is really sexy Dave.
Good question....wondering since these are no longer available except from hiromotos to go, something we can change it to? Izakuchi? from Jon
Just curious, when thinning a blade like this does it allow the opportunity to correct some of the asymmetry? I know you can't put metal back, but I thought I remember reading in an earlier refurb that the cladding on one side was thicker than the other ootb.
