Canada, eh?
With wrought iron, really not sure about the shape here…

The description of the cladding makes it sound like he clad it with all the scrap he could find:
Clad: Over 4000 layers of damascus cladding, handforged by Hashimoto, comprised of:


Hitachi yellow paper 2, SK3 SK5, SKS3, SUP10, SNCM448, SNCM630, SCNM815, SNB16, SCN43, SC50C, SS400, various soft iron (information supplied by Hashimoto).

I was A/B-ing between that and a Tanaka yanagi, but reckoned I need to concentrate on my knife skills first before jumping straight on a project knife.

Go for it fellas...

Shibata Koutetsu R2 210mm in stock at CKTG. His stuff has been OOS for quite a while since he injured his hand. Hopefully this means he’s well and back in the shop.

Y Tanaka Dammy B#1 255x54 "second" on JNS
Since Maksim Clause may be listening - please put the Y Tanaka 270 dammy on sale! Thanks!
Did you get it? This one is like 22% off at the expense of Yoshikazu kanji. I think it's a good deal if you are still looking for it.

Tosho had a sale in the beginning of September which the Konosuke Sanjo SKD Gyuto 240 were 25% off.

If you don't mind a different finish you could pick up a Yoshikane SKD at Knives & Stones. Should be pretty similar in all other regards I think.

i recently had my hands on a yoshi skd from k&s. bought it as a gift, liked it, and started researching the different variants. i think that kono sanjo at tosho is my favorite. the kono 240mm ys-m in BST is also VERY tempting, but i think i like that tosho variant more.

Myojin SG2 at KNS. Best price I’ve seen so far considering the size and saya. 488 USD shipped vs 600 + tax at togo. Wonder how much the handle factors in here considering prices are usually about the same between them.

With a handle that nice, this is easily a no-brainer.

That’s a great price - anyone wanting to try a Myojin should jump on it.

Too long for me 😅 or is this a perfect excuse for me to try one out to slice some brisket.

FYI the Myojins were posted on the US site recently. Just ordered one myself.

@tcmx3

Edit: ****, I might have just got the last one. :(

Nice buy, I really like that handle.
