And here's some more shamelessness
Konosuke Fujiyama Funayuki B2 247x53mm
Mazaki Kurouchi Nashiji gyutos
Perfect dimensions, Marc. Love Trey's work, too. If you go to sell it (why would you?) let me know!
What we need to see is your storage system for this awesome collection.
If only it was as cool as the the knives themselves.
Most reside in the basement laundry room, in a cabinet out of reach from wife and children. But all get rotated thoroughly.
In the hopefully near future I plan to build a wife approved wood/ glass display case to hang on the dining room wall. We're both pretty excited for this.
But for now (this is about 3/4 of them) :
Rader 5-Steel Damascus gyuto, 229x52mm:
Same Rader, with saya:
Marc, you are such a show off. You should be ashamed of yourself..... Beautiful knife. How are you liking it in use?
Forgot to say, you take beautiful pictures too...
Funny you should say that. I'm always a Bit reticent posting pics as I don't want to come across as a show off. I'm really just interested in sharing and discussing cool knives. Outside of forums and ig, I have no outlets to do this. It's truly a love affair, which in a sense I enjoy showing (off).
This new (to me) Rader is really impressive. I honestly can't help but continually admire it. I sharpened it for the first time today and am completely impressed at how quickly it took a screaming sharp edge. Plus with the etching I gave it it has this wonderful blue hue to it that's somewhat mesmerizing. Sadly I can't capture this in photos though.
You know I am kidding about showing off, right? Please continue to "show off", beautiful knives and you take pictures very well too.
I figured, but still felt compelled to explain. And thanks!
Couple detail shots of the above Rader. Some I was trying to show the blue hue this Damascus currently has.

Damascus rarely captures my attention. This one does. It is gorgeous! And on a side note, also DT's Damascus speaks to me...
