Ahhhh thanks! Glad to know i'm not losing it.
Does anyone know how tall at the hill the 210/240 are?
More importantly, if someone buys one, can I borrow it?
Yes. If I manage to get it you can borrow it.
Is Jikko Blue 2 here something interesting?
Forreal? No backsies!
I'm quite curious about the 195mm one. That's an unusual size for a gyuto. That can be a cute little friend to my odd 225mm Kochi V2
you could save quite abit of money and buy the akatsuki from James, about the same thing. but only 210mm is instock.
I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. Have to see if I can get it first.
Do eet I even have you the forum to fill out, lol. It took Horie-san a while to respond to my email, but I believe they're a very reputable vendor amongst German speakers.
Thanks...the Akatsuki that James has in stock is white 2, but his blue 2 was sold for $450 while available, so it’s still better deal from a better retailer. I’ll wait. It’s just interesting to see that Bernal is selling the same Jikko for $678. Don’t know how they compete like that...
Bernal blue 2 version is a little different. It’s longer and taller.
I wouldn’t buy Jikko unless you know who the sharpener is.
The Bernal one looks identical to the one I posted with price of $499. I compared the measurements and weight and they look similar. And both look like the blue 2 one on Jikko’s official website. I think they might be just original line without any retailer customization.
Is there measurments anywhere for the CM Jikko? Im assuming its normal sakai meaurements (230mm)...the bernal one is more like a true 240mm gyuto.
okay...the bernal one is 52mm 241mm long...that image CM has lists the measurements as 2 inches x 9.4 inches, personally Id like measurements that were more approximate. If theyre the exact same Its a helluva deal from CM
The 2nd description picture of the CM Jikko shows all the measurements. 240 mm from heel to tip and 400 mm total. 254 gram like the Bernal one (252g).
Damn! Still don’t trust CM haha. Might have to find their customer service department.
That’s exactly what I thought. Can’t trust CM much...

I have one similar and one on order and I entered, just saying
I entered too
Bunch of Gesshin Ittetsu honyaki up on JKI, including some ironwood handled Westerns.
Thats quite a departure from the usual Japanese Yo handle. Style like that is reminiscent of a Catcheside and to a lesser extent a Tansu. Some interesting stuff coming out of Japan recently.
Woah a 210 @330g and 240 @353g, they certainly are hefty.

Too short for me
Yoshikazu Tanaka has been churning out lots of knives lately huh
I've had my eye on the 195mm for a while now waiting on the restock. I'd have to guess it's going to be around 44-45mm as no one's posted personal measurements on them anywhere I can find. That said I know I'm not a KU person and it'll just go back on bst... If wakui made a 195mm v2 iron clad migaki I'd have been all over it.
