Grind is interesting on this one...
@HRC_64 could you explain why? I can never seem to tell anything from a choil shot except perhaps how it looks behind the edge.
sorry guys, my bad on the pics. I usually take a lot of photos together, and the itou was taken right after the mazaki, hence the mess up (on the argubly the more important one).
Just pulled out my 210mm Mazaki to cut some brussel sprouts. I haven't used the knife much since I got it last month - only sharpened it and I wasn't too happy with how it deburred.
Holy cow this thing is sharp sharp sharp.
Mazaki Dami, great find!
Can’t wait to see it showing on K&S website. I wonder if the grind will be more consistent on these.
Don't hold out hope because the Mazaking @preizzo will scoop it up
Cool, but a lil too rich for my blood. Hope it isn't a one off though, would like to see a production maz in blue.
Too rich for my blood as well. I wonder how quick that will sell?
Mazaki really is Jiro!
(Wait, or is it the other way around?)
I don't know $1.2k for a Mazaki.... One off I guess, so collectors might want it, but I just don't know...
this is hilarious
That handle is way too gaudy for me...
The new dammy knife looks amazing. I would love to wait around for the price to calm down a bit. Looking forward to try it!
Also for that price you can get a dammy catcheside. I know which one I would rather in that price bracket.
Too steep for me. Looks nice tho.
I am excited to see Mazaki’s new improvements, just 1200 is a bit much of a jump from the old 200 to 300 dollars range.
Since this is one of a kind/ first of all collector piece, I guess 1200 makes sense, but personally I will wait till Mazaki reach his peak first before consider collecting (another 20years?)
I didn't intend to be critical of Mazaki knives, the standard ones are great value. But yeah that jump is a bit insane, most makers charge 1.5-2x for forge welded damascus, not 4-5x.
that handle belongs in ugly knife thread
That choil shot though.
it appears to have a slight concave

In Theater now!
Seriously, I didn’t see the ending coming, what a twist.., Two thumbs up.
Beautiful blade. I'd prefer the basic KnS handle over this one..
That handle is well done though. Just not my taste.
Got better places to spend 1.2k
Wow. 1.2K for a Mazaki and nearly 1k for new Suk zdp189 240 gyutos. Looks like I’ll be on the sidelines for 2020. Insane!
Isn't Maz still a apprentice of Kato or was that a year ago? We have elderly master smiths with Dami in 1/2 the range of this knife. He is inexperienced.
If you do buy it, I certainly hope you enjoy your purchase!
Ew that handle. Why ruin an otherwise perfectly good-lookimg knife with what looks like a pile of solid cat vomit on fire?
I don’t care for two-tone wood handles or end-caps, but the general idea is not altogether different from one of my favorite Marko handles of all time: https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/threads/custom-order-progress-update.3552/page-2#post-68311
They mean very little, on average. The guys here have a data point to look at, and suddenly everything looks like a nail.
