    It was a comment of yours from a page or two back. Nothing at all to do with the quote I commented on. Kinda weird. Thanks for deleting it Dave.

    Holly... Somebody appears to have a kitaeji fetish, huh? The photo is disfigured, however, by the presence of lowly kasumis. Sort it out :eyebrow:

    But photos like this warm the heart. This one alone could suggest a shift in the global Shig axis away from the southern hemisphere. Is Canada the new Oz?

    No worries. Mods delete my comments all the time.:groucho:

    I'm happy that Smurfmacaw is happy now that he has his dream knife. I'll always be a fan of Kitaeji so the hunt will continue (which may result in letting go of the 210 gyuto)

    Not that it matters that much as everyone loves the core steel, but was curious if anyone else had heard that the core steel is Takefu V1 (http://zknives.com/knives/steels/v1.shtml)?

    I've seen it listed as such on a couple European websites, not sure if they are just copying each other or providing solid information.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Also I am receiving a 165mm Kitaeji Santoku on Wednesday/Thursday (that I ordered a while ago and completely forgot about till I got the shipping confirmation). Wanted to give the Shig addicts in this thread first shot at trade offers before I post it to BST. Looking for Katos, DTs, something interesting (can add cash). Shoot me a PM =)

    If this violates any rules of posting outside of BST, Moderators, please feel free to edit it out.

    No I don't believe so, from what I understand it is Swedish and not Japanese steel.

    Gator's steel chart shows 120c as .58 carbon and calls it mediocre knife steel so I doubt that's it.:) I'll go with Swedish carbon (shares steel w/ Heiji I believe) and say that whatever it is that he (they) have the magic recipe for making it awesome. Another fine example of people being overly curious when it really doesn't matter (of which I too can be guilty).

    Cheers

    Some times I wonder why there is not a Wiki page for these knives. KKF contains a wealth of knowledge that could be aggregated...

    Please keep me in mind when you want to offload the 210mm Kasumi Gyuto! Will take the Kitaeji Nakiri as well, will save on shipping cost! ;-)

    I kind of what to find out who bought that 270mm mioroshi from a few rounds back. You know, just to see how it is doing, if it is meeting any interesting fish, never to harass the purchaser to sell it to me in a SmurfMacaw/tjangula kind of way...

    That one was from Maxim. He also made the custom saya for me too.
