Sorry for the bad Cell pics



Fujiwara FKH Suji
Shun Classic 8" Graton
Tojiro ITK bread knife
Global Tourne knife
Tojiro Petty
Tojiro ITK Damascus Nakiri
Ceramic Steel
diamant Steel (for German)



Grand Prix french
Classic French
Classic Ikon Santoku
Gourmet bread knife
Henckel Twin 4 star sandwich knife

Some Basic Small wares for the line. Also got a tool box in the lock up.

Sooo I plan to sell most of the German Blades as I pick up new ones. It's a work in progress. I think My next step would be a nice Gyuto (Rodrigue Mid Tech 240 mm) and another 270 gyuto. Any suggestions? I'll be making a few additions to my stones in the next few weeks as well.

Are those peelers the Kuhn-Rikon? I've got one. They don't look like much, but they are some of the best-performing I've been able to find. Usually the more money I spend on one, the worse they work. e.g. henckels, zyliss, oxo.
Excited for you to get a piece from Pierre. Does he give a discount to fellow Canadians ???
I guess at least you save on shipping.

I'm uncertain if he does or not.I'm pretty excited though, Just unsure when they'll be ready for us.

They are just the cheapy peelers, dunno the company name. 3 piece set, does what it's supposed to and can go missing without a huge issue.

Update on where my kits at. I'm putting some work into my petty, Eventually I'll grab a better suji and Nakiri.

I can't see anything I'm missing that I can't use one I've got for. Just a good stainless knife for the line. Still gotta pick up that Gesshin



Any one know whats up with the White ceramic Mac rod? Was given to me by one of my older CDP's

Sorry for the blurry picture.

Another update, I never did look into the ceramics, The combo is pretty awesome for making things last.



1) Wusthof diamond steel (haven't sold it yet)
2) Mac white ceramic
3) Mystery Blue
4) Tadatsuna White Steel 270mm Yangiba (juat arrived)
5) Yoshihiro "Hagane" 270mm Gyuto (Just cuts everything great)
6) Tojiro Shirogami petty (only re sanded the handle and refinished the blade face so far)
7) Global Tourne (Just kindah there)
8) Fujiwara FKH 270mm Suji (Carving knife)
9) Tojiro DP "Damascus" Nakiri (workhorse)
10) Tojiro ITK bread knife (loveit)
11) Wusthof 8" chef knife (cheese)

I would like to replace at least the suji, and get a 210mm stainless gyuto, debaba, Usaba, Kirksuke, and maybe a large Kono Petty (someone at work showed up with a Kono outa nowhere!! Even the mac's are a start though. :) )

Shape and handle size compared to blades size. Shape

It looks more expensive. Is it thick?

I think I would be more eager on buying yoshihiro stuff off ebay if the "yoshihiro shop" would put any details on knife in auctions

I believe DmcCurtis said he has thinned it so it is fairly close to the Kono counter part though slightly thicker, The handle is fairly long.

Brand new, the Yoshihiro is almost as thin as a Konosuke at the spine, and a bit thicker behind the edge. Slightly flatter and pointier too, though not by much. If pressed, I'd say that brand new it was a better cutter than the Konosuke I had, and definitely better after some thinning.

Besides the gyuto I've also purchased a white kasumi yanagiba and a blue hongasumi kiritsuke. The yanagiba came with a slightly concave blade road, without any over or under grinds. The kiritsuke's blade road was completely flat but for a small over grind near the shinogi at the tip. Both had eased spines and choils, which on the kiritsuke were also rounded and polished. Very flat backs on both, though the yanagiba has a small over grind at the edge in one spot. Overall, I'm very pleased with them and would buy them again.

I debated with myself for some time between Kono and Yoshi. I may need to grab a kono before to long after seeing my co-workers. plus Tosho has some nice rosewood handles available

I'm picking up a kono 270 or 300mm suji with the rosewood D handle this week from Tosho.Both are the same price so I'll see which feels better in my hand.

Will do.Still torn between the HD and the SS.Not sure if the $85.00 price difference is worth it though....
