why does he comment 'it is stainless mazaki'? i think it looks better unetched.
Post a pic of your Maz looking really gross, with ugly patina!
Just ordered a 240 Mazaki yesterday from Maximgreat servicehe flipped the d-handle and would look for a knife with lefty friendly grind. Price was also cheaper than CleanCut. Can't wait to receive it!
Anyone know kanji? JNS and CC kanji for Mazaki side by side. The JNS kanji has two additional characters.
My JNS speciment isnt very reactive either. Its from the new (2nd) grind batch. Id say middle of the road compared to other carbon cladded knives.
So there is a new stainless version of mazaki?
No, he has just changed the grind
I have a KU version incoming so hope to have both for the weekend to compare (got an email from UPS about a delay so fingers crossed). The kasumi is killer so far. Love the look of the KU so excited to see it in person.
Mine is stuck in limbo due to 'operating conditions' in Sweden. Snow and cold be cursed!
i got to try the yahiko from cktg today and i must say it's actually pretty damn good. it differs from my mazaki in quite a few ways. first of all it's 240x52 and the profile is way more flat i would say a good 2/3rd of the knife is a solid flat spot so it pretty much resembles a long santoku but pointier, very much a push cutter. also the tip is ground thinner, it was a joy brunoising shallots with it. it is more of a laser but with some food release as only the heel area has a thick spine, tapering is even more aggressive on this one.
Ok, thanks. I just got confused by his stainless comment, still not sure what that meant.
Are you in a passaround on that one? Is it the hairline or nashiji. If you could only have one of them which would you have between the yahiko and the mazaki. Both these lines have my attention.
no, i convinced someone from work to buy one(hairline), lol. i prefer the mazaki, i think they are too different to consider it a clone. if i didnt already have a laser-ish knife, i would seriously consider one in 210 length.
Smooth move, thanks. I've been leaning towards the mazaki, but always been curious about those yahikos.
Cool. Thanks for (having someone else) taking the plunge. They look so close from the specs and pics that I had about convinced myself (and 10 other people) that they were the same. Good value though, eh?
I guess he meant stainless is on the way.......http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com/mazaki/
Oh snap. Ginsanko??!! Suddenly I care again.
Have a 180 petty and more recently the 270 suji from jns, the 180 has been on the line with me just about every day since September. Love it.
There's a Mazaki k tip that just popped up over at aframes.
That's pretty intriguing actually
Got the 180 petty first and love every damn time I use it. Then got a 210 (220 with New grind) from Maksim 👍👍
Ordered 220ku from cleancut last week (maybe got out before weather 🙏 just cause.
And now this.... ginsanko nonsense :scared4: ... 'oh the humanity'
Next thing... Toyoma type blue comes out
#hasheffingtag when does it end
Damn... I know that I'm personally affected by the sudden winter here, but that it should affect knife deliveries from CC to all over the world... Oh my. Somebody, do something!
Saw that too...do I need to buy a third? :curse: :biggrin:
Feeling tortured right now. According to the tracker, my 240 Mazaki is on a DHL truck less than five miles away. Wished tracker was more accurate so I could head out and look for the truck!
Le grande Maz..
Just arrived, introduced it to some rapinilove it so far! Maxim flipped the handle to lefty for me, and looked for one with a more neutral grind. Sent out on Tuesday, here today!
This thread is no good for my itchy finger. What size is that ditmas?
