Raders are some of the best looking knives in the game for me. Would love to own one some day.

Kato standard 240, mammoth tooth handle by Chef Duy Pham. The extra marking on the blade is called kao I believe, which kato does when he designates a blade to be perfect. Thank you Duy!!

Ha, thanks guys. Planning to chop some bones with it I guess? I wanted something heavy duty that was quality but could take a bit more abuse. Slightly lower HRC, thicker, and less delicate. This fit the bill perfectly. I can envision it doing some work with proteins, really hard veggies, etc. I can't wait to use it.

View attachment 54073 Long time coming and it’s what I’d hope it would be.
I had this knife in my cart at CC so many times, but have hesitated making that next step up in prices from where I'm at atm.
Someday...
It looks a lot thinner than other yoshikane offerings at the CC site. I bet i cuts something fierce! Would love to hear some more impressions after you've hade a few more sessionswith it.

Edit: That pattern on the kurouchi part is exquisite. Almost looks hand engraved at times.
Sorry for the rant, but this knife always makes me giddy.
Congrats and enjoy!

I took a leap on this, heard they can be all over the place in terms of specs and steel treatment. I can already say it’s pretty sweet. This ones 245mm and 50mm high, very thin at the tip, nicely tapered, very good size flat spot in the rear and very sharp. Plowed through 5 lbs of potato’s like a boss. I’ll be keeping this for a while!

Bought two Morakniv Robust carbon steel knives yesterday from the store for 10 EUR each. These are made in Sweden with pretty good quality steel. The thing that makes the Robust stand out is that the spine is double the normal width. Normal is 1.6mm and the Robust is 3.2mm, which means you can't break it even if you pound the blade into a tree with a hammer and stand on the handle.
