Definitely curious to hear your thoughts on this
initial impression:

1. perfect FF
2. love the handle
3. pretty thin - high on ease of cutting
4. food release is surprisingly decent. bigger thin carrot slices can still be pushed off easily. Nothing really sticks to the knife with suction.
5. a bit tall for a nakiri, but a bit small for a cleaver.
6. doesn't feel as robust as my small cleavers given how thin it is, but I'll take the trade off. definitely not for chopping.
 
250mm 52100 Gyuto from @MSicardCutlery. Second knife I have of his and I love it

If there ever were a ranking for underrated makers I think Fellipi deserves a spot at the top of that list. Amazing to work with, communicative, and even though things didn’t go to plan with our initial concept, he ran with it and made these gorgeous wrought Damascus clad knives (a semi integral and petty from the same billet). I don’t think you ever really see semi integrals with such insanely thin geometry, nor petties with this kind of DT (5.5-0.6mm). Can’t wait to put them to use. Insane value considering if they didn’t come with leather cases and Sayas as well

Curious what pricing is on something fancier like this, can you pm me what they cost?

That semi integral is 🥵🥵🥵
 
Do you put the vinegar into the coffee? If so, how much by relative volume, like 10% or so?

Or do you just do a quick vinegar etch after the straight coffee?
Combined vinegar and coffee etch. And I wish I remembered the exact combo, it's been a while since I've done it. I recall my thought at the time being attempting a higher acidity etch. I remember the etch being a pretty quick one, too.

Did it with AU, 26c3, and 52100 steels. The 26c3 was overall a darker etch but still had the rainbow effect.

It was something I discovered accidentally when playing with different etching solutions as I like low reactivity knives and seeing banding patterns.

Thanks! I’ve coffee-etched almost all of my high-carbon knives so I’ll give this a try the next time.

Finally completed the Kato collection. Excuse my harsh lighting.
Top to bottom:
210mm Sujihiki Migaki
240mm Gyuto Migaki
255mm Gyuto Kurouchi
270mm Sujihiki Kurouchi
None were bought from JNS, so all standard. The big gyuto is probably the coolest 😁
n00b checking in … which Kato?

It's... well... yeah... it's quite okay.







:LOL: :angiefavorite:
 
😍 I'll take it with me to the grave:love:🍻

Sweet pepper


Onion


Celery stick


Carrot


Apple

I'm jealous that you're using it, lol. I don't think I ever could actually use a knife costing that much.

Edit: *Very* impressive performance on the apple.

Another edit: Yeh... Impressive is quite the understatement. It is somehow quiet while sectioning but also the dice stays on the board in pretty little stacks. Hand-cut hash browns next 😀
