Well, the only reason they're lasting as long as they have is that people haven't realized how awesome these Warikomi blades are. Buy one now before you regret it later.
I already own one of the Silversteel Warikomis.

Yes, but there are two versions of the warikomi collaboration. A concave grind in his earlier offering and a convex grind in his later offerings.

Canada, eh?

Didn't know that - I had a recent convex grind and it was one of the best grinds I've touched in my experience.

I guess I’m coming from the perspective of ‘guy who already has most the boxes checked’, so I can see where it’s useful to a lot of people. I haven’t needed ‘bangers’ in a looooong time. So that leaves the category of knives that I look at now are probably among the slimmest out there. No harm of course meant to Koki, and he still does have some pretty sweet stuff.
I just wish he'd leave normal handles on the good stuff...
FWIW, I'm probably heading over there to get a buddy setup for his first graduation from the knife block set.

Sign of things to come? Jiro Kitaeji kiridashi. But for such an expensive piece I would have expected perfection. Separation of lamination is disappointing.

I think that one was sold by Tosho a while ago.

Likewise. The timing ended up terribly on this one
I’m here for the damn support group 🤣
Really it helps to hear others are struggling to hold back on this one too! I think I’ve been eyeing this for around a year now, this price is really hard not to jump at.

I will regret not buying this for a long time, but with the way this world is going, I don’t want to risk the regret of buying it even more

Munetoshi slicer back in stock over at JNS. What’s the deal with the slicer, just a short suji?

Wooooow. Now, if it was a kitaeji, I'd be all over that (the kiridashi had me really tempted, thanks for whoever saved me while waffling).

I’ve never seen a shig just sitting there. Almost makes me want to buy it. Almost
Ya I am right there with you. In my heart I feel like $900 for any knife is overkill (for me - chef, user). And I’m also currently v underemployed so that is ultimately the determining factor 😝

Might be more tempting if it's true prices are going up 25% next year.

The 270 kitaeji tempted me. It had it in my cart for a tiny bit too long.

I haven't been in a pro kitchen for a while so I couldn't justify it, haha.
