I started collecting knives January of 2022 and got totally hooked. To the point where I have to ditch my other hobbies and spend more on knives. So here they are and still waiting for the rest to arrive. :)✌️

Great set. Do you have some standout favorites for the gyutos?

For me would probably be a kagekiyo, kyuzo, and yohei damascus. One of these days I need to try a Kurosaki. Recommended by never tried. I forgot what is the difference between fujin and senko besides the marks? One is forged vs stamped right?

My favorites so far are my Blue 1’s which is the Nakagawa x Myojin, Kagekiyo, Tanaka x Kyuzo. Before all that it was the Kurosaki Fujin’s and yes The Fujin line is forged and the Senko line is stamped but that senko line is such laser.

Very nice I am a blue 1 man myself. Gonna have to get yourself a blue 1 honyaki!
 
Great looking collection! :)

Just curious about why you classified the Kono FM as "dead weight". Can you elaborate on that please?
