Nice. I almost took that one, but it was a little short. Hope you enjoy it!
Nice, so you grabbed it? Check back when you get it. Enjoy!
Yeah, he emailed me yesterday afternoon and I was happy to take it off his hands. Still need to pay the man, but should be in the mail later today.

The length didn't bother me, I have a couple really long sujis so that side of things is covered.

Truly a one of a kind, congratulations

Hos do you like their handle styrkes compared?
The original by Haley is much more nimble and light, but the larger knife’s handle’s weight and heft feels right with the overall size of the blade. The larger also has more of a 3D shape to fit a tighter closed fist grip. I’ve asked Haley to out me on her list for another blade in the 4” range once she’s back in the shop...I really like how Adam finished this handle and I’d really like to see his work on a smaller blade to see if mine was thick to compensate for the blades weight, or thats more his style.

I will say, I love the profile, it cuts like a dream, and the fit and finish is the nicest I’ve seen in person. Highly recommend ordering from either of them!

240mm Gengetsu semi-stainless from @ashy2classy. Paid for it Thursday afternoon, and it was delivered Friday afternoon(!!)

My first gyuto, and I'm afraid this knife has already ruined all knives for me.

I've been agonizing the decision for weeks, what type of steel, what kind of cladding, 210 VS 240, etc. I'm really glad I decided to go with 240 - for something the size of a sword (compared to my below average height & hand size), this knife is just so ridiculously light

Some heavy metal I’ve been lucky enough to play with lately. The Oatley honyaki has been around here a couple times and it’s found a very happy home.

This finally arrived in the mail today.

Blacksmith : Genkai Masakuni, Sharpener : Hakuhou

330mm Takohiki, white 1 Mizu honyaki.

Unfortunately these haven't got their final polish yet. But I'm still very happy with them! :D:D
That takohiki is stunning.
