    Stunner xenif! How come the kurouchi part is so slight? Did you sacrifice some of it in order to get rid of the low spots? Anyways, looks really really good!

    Don’t be! Just buy one from Japanese natural stones. Or ask around on bst if someone has a spare munetoshi they’d be willing to part with. You get a lot of knife for the money!

    Awesome, very sharp, mine is 250mm and still very comfortable in hand. Also sharpens really fast and easy

    There was a really bad over grind at the heel, to take it out I had to move up that whole area. Also thanks for the praises, hanging around kkf makes you buy silly stones and spend silly amount of time on them.

    I have to say that my Munetoshi knives are absolutely some of my best performers, and favorite knives to use. I have the full lineup except for the chopper (if someone has one they are looking to sell, reach out).

    My collection consists of Konosuke fujiyama, Takeda, TF, Heiji, Mazaki, Masamoto KS, Yoshikazu Tanaka, but I always go back to the Munetoshi's. They are soo easy to sharpen and take/hold an incredible edge. Very hard steel, and with some work they take a great kasumi finish. Reactivity is pretty low if you polish with a Jnat.

    They look amazing after some work with stones
