Some scared veggies there, except that one raddish who seems to be smiling......
looks like a watanabe box in there...
Tosa Nakiri 165 mm
Bought it as a starter carbon knife, but I'm very impressed at the quality for the price (<$40) at Hida Tool

Also received this 240 mm Ryusen Brazen Gyuto picked up here from Dreamweaver (a great transaction).
Haven't gotten to use them yet as they both came in today, but I got a little album. 270mm White2 Wakui I got in trade and a 240mm SS Clad Kintaro from JKI.
Wakui 210 (Cleancut)
Funny, I get annoyed taking stickers off all the vegetables.
Kaeru 210 Jns
That Kaeru is gorgeous...
Top : Kaeru 149,8 gr
Bot : Wakui 170,4 gr
bottom of salmon not so much
hence emergency unit... Sadly couldn't do much, ended in ceviche !
trout , salmons are too big for my small kitchen
Makoto Kurosaki 240 . this one is still in USA, will get it in March, when my friend comes back.
Custom Shig Kitaeji steak knife:
Looks amazing...any hagane or just pure kitaeji ?

Santa didn't fight back as I robbed his boots, helps a lot !
You could have gotten one truly awesome.knife instead of bunch of beaters tho..
Sure, but for that purpose you need to know exactly what your needs are.
I see it other way round . Taking advantage of black friday and bst deals ,I was able to buy a bunch of knives, and i will have time to try different profile,geometrie etc...to know what suits me better.
Maybe next year or so ,i'll know more about it.
Buying a shig, honyaki or Kato from scratch w'd be nonsense, in my point of view.
I'm done now with knive purchase and will focus on their use trying to discover where they do shine, or not !
I'd like to improve my sharpenning skill too and having different profiles, grinds are also a plus .
I did have some very,very good deals on most of this knives, don't worry
As long as they were bought at the same time.... OP still qualifies for "buy once, cry once"
(j/k OP, good luck and enjoy that new ~haul~)
Thanks, I did some homework before buying them,so I think I'll enjoy the journey !
my bladder being far from eyes, don't think i'll cry for long
Would love to know how the edge holds up against ceramic. It is a looker for sure.
Not my latest but still recently added
Honiyaki gyuto from @evan.antzenberger
Monostell carbon 1,25 62 gyuto from @dalmanknives
