Tbh I’m glad I got to try one instead of buying a Takada no Hamono. Now I’m not sure I’d want to own one.
Why not? That choil shot from the CKC Takada looks deadly 😮

$450 is pretty reasonable for a sick grind + Y. Tanaka steel, and decent F&F?

Oh yeah it’s a great knife and a great deal. Really just solid on the stones too.
Blade overall is just a tad too thin for me.
But that more workhorse looking Takada at strata on the other hand....

If you didn't want that, you wouldn't be on here so often. #AmIRite?
Covid stress reliefs means I've bought and sold a bunch since March.

Difficult decisions on pruning the 210 herd right now

Know the feeling - the Fuji FM 210 I have is a very solid blade. I know Tanaka in another steel would be different, but is it different enough to be worthy?

I know, right? Like how can I truly compare knives unless I have them in my hand? Like which is the best FM in 210? Only three more to pick up to find out. Or maybe the MM is better? Or maybe the Sumiiro, Or maybe.....

Time to give your CC and preferred shipping company a workout?

If you could do something to the US economy to get my dollar more on par, it would help. In the meantime, I'm waiting for stuff to go on sale....

Working on mobile, not sure why it mis-quoted that.....

Edit: fixed it now @labor of love - had a double quote entry

So those two have the same sharpener? I was always curious about those FTs, the Suibokus look really nice. How do you like it.
It feels ALOT like the Suiboku. My Suiboku is Nakagawa blue 2 and my FT is Tanaka obviously. But Sakai it’s kinda all about who finishes the knife and the smith is just profile and treatment.

the Suiboku is probably my favorite knife. But the FT is pretty damn close on first inspection.

I gotMaster Takada to all but admit he’s Yohei Thru DM… maybe he’ll cop to the FT as well.

I will say the FT had a lot more swirls in the cladding, almost like a super faint Damascus steel look. It’s got to be in the right light. The suiboku is way more iridescent looking.

yeah, he's not denying that he's Yohei.
