Nihei AS reactive damascus. 555 for a "240" (which says it's actually 250) + 20% off right now. I'm very curious about these. Unfortunately the one with this handle is only a 210

Looks like a new line of blue 1 dama by Nakagawa for RSK.

20% off his website with code Go Buffalo today and tomorrow. Seems like a great buy at that price

Does anyone know who the sharpener is for that Nakagawa? Seems like Myojin does a lot of work with them but nothing confirmed there.
Not sure but high possibility it's myojin...the polish and grind fit his MO. Reach out to Dustin and ask on insta, I'm sure he is more than happy to share if he can without hurting his business relationships.

Nakagawa Damascus x Myojin
Best way to tell is the darker etching and more mirror edge...
Not all of them are sharpened by Myojin

Tosho 22 is up. Did Nakagawa x Myojin always have a matchi gap?


Edit to add: looks like no.

Tosho probably installed their own handles on these, they love their machi gaps.

I left a machi gap on one of the knives I swapped the handle on.

Explanation 1: I like how it looks.
Explanation 2: The hole of handle is too shallow to fit in the tang. I conveniently gave up after trying to dig it deeper.

Which one do you think is true? lol

If it was me doing that to my knife, definitely #2!

Those who install knife handles always try to make a perfect balance on each knife, so machi may be on some knives and may not be on others. Depends on blade and handle weight

Not true imo. The machi is purely aesthetic, as is the machi gap. While I love the former, I despise the latter on several levels.
