I really like it!
It's super thin for a claded knife and really light.
The handle on it was beautiful but was a little big for me so I sanded it down to a more comfortable size.
The only down side is that it loses it's edge pretty quick.
But on the upside it gives me a chance practice my sharpening skills.

I was really hoping you were going to say it's terrible, that way I could stop wanting one so badly haha!

Nice collection of knives. That Carter wabocho is just crying out for a new handle, though. :biggrin:

Impressive collection, thank you for sharing it with us.

I'm not familiar with "Massakage Kato San."

(Nice photo too.)

Massakage is a line of knives that Kevin Kent of Knifewear in Calagary carries.
Kato San is the blacksmith for this line of Masakage Koishi AS knifes (this is the proper spelling of Masakage)

Love the profile of that Ino gyuto.

You inspired me to take a closer look on the JKI website (thankfully they are out of stock!).

I thought that Carter only used either white #1 or Blue Super (recently changed to 100% white #1). What's the story with the white #2 blades? Haven't seen or heard about these before.

Ok, not saying is isn't possible, just thought that it wasn't likely though.

Nice collection though, looks like nice examples from each maker.

Nice Line up. How do you like the 240 Tanaka R2?

I'd have to say the Tanaka is the best performer of the lot.
Very comfortable handle and the R2 stays sharp forever.

I just wanted to share a few pics of my new Stefan Keller Handle.
It's buckeye burl with marble buffalo horn and red spacer.

I thought I would also add a photo of my 233mm Carter Funy with a mhenry handle.
It's desert ironwood with camel bone and a brass spacer.

Thanks a million Stefan and Mike!

Very nice! I like seeing two amazing craftsmen's work side by side, like that.
Both look great!

Gorgeous. The two knives are also very different, yet they complement each other really well -- and I'm a work-horse-knife kinda guy. Bravo, Stef and Mike!

PS: I'm somewhere in line for a Henry Handle... I really should get in line for a Keller. And then a AMT custom. And then...
