    yea idk im lovin these. may even double dip on this batch if funds allow. which i dont think they will but these are great, even with bump in price. they feel better in hand then any of his other stuff ive tried. however i did have to do a lil work to the edge to get it where i like but thats only more fun am i right

    Just got one this week. It's not too bad, but I like 'em thicc. ;) Mine weighs in at 293g and is about 275mm on the edge. Great cutters overall. I thought it would be too heavy for me but I'm not feeling that now that I have the knife.

    I got the nashiji and it's crazy good. Stiff spine but super thin behind the edge. Stupid sharp.

    I’ll probably just get them both tbh. Shigehiro cannot be denied.

    I have a Mazaki Nakiri, like all of his stuff she's pretty thick out of the handle with a nice taper, and thin behind the edge.

    Heavier than my other Nakiri's put feels powerful and falls through food.

    @rob thank you. Do you get any wedging going through gigantic carrots at all?

    @labor of love ya it came up shortly before we started talking about the CKC batch. @preizzo has it.

    @CiderBear, it’s a different batch, but I just picked up the 180 KU nakiri that was on BST. My impressions are very similar to Rob’s. Surprisingly hefty and thick at the handle. Plenty of distal taper and pretty thin behind the edge. It’s only seen onions and sweet potatoes so far, but it went through both cleanly. It feels like it would be a great knife to prep a batch of roasted root vegetables.

    I thought I put few photos a 240ku from carbonknife, got this one about a month ago. Fantastic cutting stuff...

    248*54,3
    258gr
    Spine at the handle 6,37
    -*- at the heel 5,85
    -*- at the middle 2,78
    -*- 10mm from the tip, I am not that good measuring. Around 0,85-1,05
    Balance point just sweet with this weight.

    There is early christmas for me, still two 240 gyuto waiting for test :D.

    240 kasumi finish from K&S about a month ago.

    246*53,4
    279gr
    Spine at the handle 6,1
    -*- at the heel 5,4
    -*- at the middle 2,8
    -*- 10mm from tip 0,8-1
    20g Heavier than the carbonknife KU version but doesn't feel so, maybe because the ebony handle is heavier? and the balance point is slighty towards the pinchgrip and handle. Ootb edge slighty behind the ckc, but still a performer. Few pictures after family meal prep, quite reactive.

    No proplems. I thought if somebody gets these any useful that is good. Offcourse they varies from batch to batch and knive to knife...
