    Just got my FuRinKaZan 240mm Lefty Mioroshi Deba in Aoko#2! I’m very impressed with the fit and finish of this knife. The out of the box edge is pretty darn decent too. Especially for a deba. Haven’t used it yet but I’ll be breaking it in tomorrow on some salmons and albacore tomorrow.

    Something completely new for me Differentially hardened 240 guyto by TX Knives out of Denmark. Its tall 55mm at the heel, super flat (like nakiri) and super thin, I mean insanely thin. It just came in and I only messed around with it for a few cuts but really flew through product with a decent non-sticking. The steel feels very hard and pretty stiff considering the taper it has. I'm pretty impressed so far.

    YES!!! I need to try one of Steffen's knives. Enjoy!

    BTW, great collection! I should know this, but what are the two wide bevels that have matching handles?

    Thanks. Those are 210/240 Kono Fuji Ginsan's in curly mango from Burl Source rehandled by Ian Haburn. The 240 was my thinest knife, until today.

    Ah I thought they were Konos but knew the kanji on the left wasn't aogami. Totally forgot about the old ginsans. Duh! Thanks and enjoy the TX!

    Beautiful addition and line up ... looks like someone might need another mag strip (& wall) though!

    Really attractive knife, I've always liked what I've seen of his work online.

    The run of knives from shorter to longer on that mag strip is kinda OCD. :D

    Thanks! @panda is correct, it's from Tim Johnson, it was his knife. It's a great handle, but I'm gonna replace it.
