Personally, I have no use for it in my kitchen. The blade is super-stout and better suited to the abuses of a campsite. It would work for breaking down large bone joints or hard squash?
As you can see, the spine is almost twice the thickness of my Watanabe outdoor knife.

Yeah that spine just screams bushcraft to me. 🔪🌲

I couldn't screenshot it, but curious what knife Chris Bianco is using in the new Chef's Table Pizza on Netflix.


It's at 23:23 ... looks large and carbon but I got nothing beyond that.

I was thinking the same thing after watching the episode.
I tried to took some ss, sharing below. (It was really hard to catch.) Impossible to see kanji.
First thing I thought he lives in Arizona and really into local, could it be a Shihan but it doesn't look like much to me. I'm really curious though.

Didn't found the knife, but I did find a Takamura on their Instagram page.

Which takamura is that?? Orange pakka handle like the chromax series but the finish on the blade is like the r2 migaki series?
Not sure, I was referring to the he's using in that post not the one in front, it just got the Kanji Takamura.

Right it's definitely a takamura in the Instagram post you shared, just not a configuration I've seen before and I've owned a bunch of takamuras. Maybe it's specific to a mystery retailer. Would be curious to see the other side of the blade. 🤷‍♂️🔪
