    That's really beautiful! Congrats!

    Is it the tamahagane steel that causes the bit of swirl near the spine? That's really interesting!

    JKI makes a few different types of sayas. I haven't tried one yet but plan to soon.

    I'll let you know when I get it, that might just be a little bit of oil(I presume your not talking about the Hamon) I'm crazy excited for it, it's a personal unicorn of mine.

    Edro would be the cheapest, after that I'd jump up to someone like Cody Paul.

    I've had my first Japanese knife for a couple of years now, a Masakage Yuki Gyuto 180mm, I love it and it was a revelation in terms of what a knife could be like. But

    I've just had a bit of a splurge and added these - it's a slippery slope!

    Yu Kurosaki Bunka 165mm - this thing is lovely, very light and thin and the fit and finish is very nice.

    Yoshikane Petty 135mm - really really pretty, super light and very sharp. Seems to be very reactive. sliced an apple this morning wiped and dried and when i came back there was a patina already!
    IMG_0248.jpeg
    Wakui Gyuto 240mm - very nice. balance is more blade heavy than i'm used to so will take some adjusting to. IMG_0249.jpeg
    Group shot!

    Sweet! I just got a Yu Kurosaki Fujin AS petty. Light and thin certainly describes the petty as well.

    I know, went a bit mad!

    It seems like he makes a really nice knife. I can defintely see me getting some more of his.

    It is definitely a slippery slope but you seem to have pretty good control so far, one becomes less and less price sensitive in certain ranges. Enjoy the new ones, look like some great pickups!

    This lunker showed up today. Can't wait to blast through some chickens with it. MASAHIRO Bessaku Garasuki 180mm. Blade looks nice. Handle fit and finish is about what I'd expect for $100. Will take a sander to it.

    You really aren't a proper connoisseur until you take out that second mortgage ;)

    That's amazingly heavy for its size. I assume that the blade is quite thick at the spine?

    Little bitty (125 mm) Watanabe Nakiri with upgraded D-shaped burnt chestnut handle with buffalo horn ferule. I REALLY like the handle and am very impressed with the knife after skinning enough lemon for my post-crappy-day martini!

    Nice! Is it a trick of the pictures or is the handle indeed longer than the blade?

    I've been considering one of these as a budget way to get a Watanabe. Nice to see it in the wild.

    They're very close to the same length: handle is ~4 3/4", blade is ~4 7/8".

    The only thing I've used it for is zesting a lemon, but it works like a microtome for that--slicing the zest uniformly from the pith. Not sure how much I'll use it for veggies--it's pretty small--but it sure is sweet.

    UHB20c differentially hardened
    Handle from masur birch, birch bark and moose antler.

    It is my All-Sweden-themed gyuto, blade-heavy workhorse. 225/53/220g.

    I absolutely love every little bit about it. Jonas, thank you so very much!! You nailed it!!! BTW, I think this is the most beautiful handle I have ever seen from you. F&F is absolutely perfect... I am speechless!
