    Thats quite an acute angle on the Dalman. How does it perform on the board?
    What a looker.....

    Last addition: Konosuke HD2 300mm Sujihiki - next to its little brother, the HD2 240mm Gyuto and its little sister, the 150mm Petty. Those gyutos are found rather regular, but the Petty and the Sujihiki aren't seen very often (at least I don't see them often), so I'm glad I was able to complete my HD2 collection.

    270mm I would guess? That's the best size of gyuto, all the cool kids use 'em.

    That's a good find

    I wasn't a fan of R2 steel but then found a couple of tricks, basically had to thing a bit, and the right stone and it's now one of my favs

    I’m wasn’t a big R2 fan either. The only one I liked was my former Takamura Uchigumo, and I kind of regret letting that one go. So far, I’m liking this one just as much even though I don’t typically like knives with thin spines.

    As dafox already asked, please tell us more. Which stone/s did you use for thinning and any other tricks you'd like to share.

    Took a good bit of steel to thin with a diamond plate, it was originally 400 but it's a couple years old, then deburred a good bit as well, then moved to another diamond plate 1000 grit equivalent and finished with 6k arashiyama for refined finished or for a toothier finished also used an extra fine diamond plate, in the 3-5k grit range. To touch up I strop with felt and Marko diamond spray - holds super long

    Thanks!
    The suji is rather stiff I'd say, but of course a little bit flexible at the tip. I can compare it to an Ashi Suji 27cm I owned, there is no big difference. I also bought a Dalman Sawjihiki, which is much more flexible.

    Mack.

    It will not help to post the question twice mate. Also, it would help if you could write something more. What is it you wish to know about this?

    I have no idea, but if I had to guess could be a gutting knife or a harvesting knife. Hope you find the answer.

    A gelding knife? Might be strange to keep in the kitchen, but I suppose it would make sense if that's where all the knives are kept?

    Edited to add: That was half in jest. More likely a harvesting knife?

    I’ve only had one knife in R2 by Shiro Kamo but the JNS 1k and 6k work great for me with it.
