GORGEOUS KNIFE. I bid on this myself!! Can't wait to get feedback on how it works.
Thanks all. Yes, I was lucky I got the auction reopened as it closed 45 mins too early. Bart also described it incorrectly as a 150mm petty. Very happy its actually got a 175mm edge length making it a little more versatile. Cuts are like butter. So smooth and effortless. Tried it on a few carrots and there was zero wedging. Its tall enough at the heel for board work and nimble using the tip.

Comet W2 differentially hardened Honyaki 175x36 136G petty. Been wanting to try one of Trey's honyaki blades for a long time and this doesn't disappoint. Hamon is exceptional.


That's nice, that hamon is really cool looking. The ashi is really crazy on that hamon!

Just got this new Toyama stainless clad 240mm Gytuo, decided to play a little bit with it and did a quick etch on the core steel.



The Original and the Stainless Toyama.

Comet SC125 Honyaki 180 petty. Had my eye on this one for quite a while, bought it new but I couldn’t wait to use it so it’s already got this lovely patina.

Sweet honyaki. Trey is killing it at the moment. Love my petty, which suits my cutting style to a tee and it's quickly becoming the one I reach for. He was curious how your's would patina so I sent him a link :)

I’ve been curious about these for some time. Finally took the plunge on a 240 standard! :D

Great find! I'd love to hear your thoughts after using it
Pretty blown away to be honest. I was fully prepared to be let down by all the hype. It behaves like some sort of impossible combination of effortless heavyweight laser with crazy food release. I can’t really explain it.

That's awesome, thanks for your take. I have a Kikuryu workhorse, but am hoping to find a standard to compare with at some point... such hard knives to track down at this point, and I've not yet talked myself into paying resale prices...

Finally took my Kurosaki bunka out of the box. Super thin, really easy to control.

I never get it why someone would leave those stickers on the ferrule. It’s like leaving stickers on drinking glasses...

Nice knives! Love my Toyamas!

I don't recall ever buying a glass with a sticker on it but I always leave the stickers on my laptop. Like for years...lol.

Regardless, yeah, those are some good looking knives!

Yes, it should be a JT damacus, 52100 and 15n20.

I am interested to see how it performs in the future. Never had a carbon damacus, I guess I will treat it like 52100


I think that steel was made by my son John, 52100 and 15n20.

Got my 210 Watanabe from bst. Sent it to Shihan for a custom redwood burl and Kingwood handle and some small fit and finish touch ups (thinned the tip a bit, rounded the spine and the heel a bit).

Can't wait to use it at work tomorrow.
