    Yoshikazu Ikeda 225mm white #1 mizu honyaki kamagata usuba

    I'll get some better pictures later in the week. Beautiful mirror polish and a very subtle Hamon, the Hamon on the ura is much more pronounced.

    Here’s a couple of shots from the maker. I first reached out to Tony Laseur in the beginning of the year, now it’s ready it should come in next week. More detail pics when it arrives

    You got this one?!?!? That handle is slick!

    We need to see more of Tony's work on the forums. IMO, he's an underrated US maker that doesn't get enough love around here.

    Can't wait for my LaSeur to be ready! I'll post pics, but it probably won't be for another month or two.

    More pics, actually got her out and used her, the vendor chose to leave the blade Uber mirror polished but at the cost of no Hamon, I can see one in there. I may commission someone to make the Hamon pop, I never understood honyakis without hamons. I apologize my clothes hamper is in the second pic, I swear I'll clean up tomorrow.

    Also anyone know what the kanji says lol.

    Same case with my ikeda honyaki. Super mirror but no hamon. But a little bit of lemon juice and flitz fixed it super easy you should try

    I'm too scared to do that lol. I may have Carlos polish it up, I can't redo a mirror polish to this level with my current skill level.

    Is the core not coming out on the bottom half of those knives?

    Dont worry its not gonna change the mirror polish. I didnt have to redo mine
    You dont hve to redo the finish. It shouldnt change it at all. Its also my first hamon etch so i was scared too but youll be surprised how easy it really is. BB522028-B3AD-493F-8F6E-D5F16B025E8E.jpeg

    So rub it with lemon juice and then flitz? I can't remove the handle and mine was burnt on.... I think it's my first knife with a burnt on handle, didn't realize people still do that lol. I may have to google this

    You dont have to cover the whole knife in lemonjuice just the area where the hamon is. Heat up the blade first just let sit in running hot water from the tap for a min. Then apply lemon juice Let it sit for a min. Then flitz. Repeat about 4 -6 times thats it.

    You bet! I'll show you a couple ways to polish it for different effects/finishes. It's not rocket science.

    flitz is on the way, for obvious reasons im skeptical about putting lemon juice all over a $1000 knife lol, I have a shiraki yanagi with the same issue, but i think the hamon rides the shinogi line, it's really really really hard to see on that one... it might not even exist lol

    Be sure to was off the residue from flitz before apply lemon juice again. If you dont want to heat up the blade just heat up the lemon juice in the microwave. Dont have to cover the blade with it just the hamon area good lick would love to see results

    Not a kitchen knife, but the only ZDP-189 I'm going to have for a while under my current budget.

    Dragonfly 2.

    I’m a big fan of my ZDP Dragonfly. Certainly one of my favorite pocket knives and I’ve owned more that I care to admit.

    Some new sayas and handles by Graydon (Graydo77) for some old knives… the smaller one is two different examples of curly redwood, and the larger one is koa for the handle and fiddleback eucalyptus for the saya. The ferrules on both handles are ancient bog oak from burlsource and the handle wood was purchased from Stefan Keller; one day I also hope to have a handle from him, but for now am happy to have some elements of them

    Also wanted to post my friends Mizuno cleaver with handle and saya (could almost double as a cutting board lol) also done by Graydon… it will inspire my next project

    Hi Bruce, thanks for the kind words, I like the large pins and am going to have a knife of mine done with some larger mosaic pins too. Also valgard posted a link to graydon’s IG, that may be the best way to get a hold of him as he’s not technically a vendor here.

    I’d have to double check but recall it was about 40x160 SS clad white1. I sent it to JKI a few years ago because it was taller and had no flat spot… Jon took care of it and reprofiled/thinned, it is a scalpel (choil on right)
