I tend to use this as bait when people want Katos on BST. ’You’ll give me that Kato, and I’ll give you this super rare ancient natural knife! No money on the side’. I’m surprised no one has accepted that offer yet... [emoji12]well, it does look like bamboo. dirty bamboo
Wait, aren't you the guy who likes stainless damascus show ponies saddled with an acrylic fountain pen for a handle?those are not mine!! LOL
it was @CB1968 collection, i thought that handle looked cool so i asked him what it was. the9 ancient red gum i think he said??
all of my handles are burnt chestnut or ho, haha. except the hiromoto honyaki, that one is the stock bolsterless western rosewood. i never bothered changing it because it looks ugly but the shape and feel of it works perfectly for this knife that i use as a beater.
i dont have a recent photo of the lineup, but you can see the knives i use in my profile.
thats a pretty nice collection you got going.
how do you like that denka? what is the grind like on sukenari honyaki? i have one coming my way in a few days (albiet a suji not gyuto)
You gotta post it here. Do it. For the people.Oh that thing is immediately coming off, I'm hoping it breaks in the process of removal so that I can throw it away lol
