This would be my first time ordering direct from TF. Was going to start a new thread but figured I would post here. Was looking at petties. Don’t have any smaller knives. Lately I’ve been wishing I had one. Instead of a petty I want a 180 gyuto. I was thinking either Watanabe or TF. I think this would be a good opportunity to give TF a shot. I’ve always wanted to. Im not handle picky. Wa or yo is fine. However, the last thing I want is a blade to show up with terrible issues. How exactly do you guys word these emails? If someone could walk me through it slightly, I would appreciate it. I think a denka is out of my price range so I would be going for a Mab. I’m not looking for a beefy 180. However I do want the heel height, an even grind ( obviously ), and one that’s going to be a touch on the thinner side when it comes to behind the edge. Do I just reach out to these guys and let them know exactly that? And am I betting off going for the wa or yo handle?
How’d it go?
