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!
220mm blue 2 honyaki by Mert Tansu
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.
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!
Kono Fujiyama Bunka, wide bevel, 203mm edge, 56mm height. I’m very happy with this addition to the Fuji family.
Is that my old Fuji bunka? Miss that one!
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
240 Watanabe. A hefty 244g. WORKHORSE. Love it!
Beautiful knife! Was that the last one from Carbon Knife Co?
I believe so!
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.
Not a new knife but since it had not been posted, here it is, 240 KD gyuto. I posted a few more photos is a separate thread.
What's height, weight and lenght? And most importantly how does it cut?
Two knives that came recently from JNS, Toyama SS Clad 210mm & Shige Kasumi 210mm.
TF Denka no Hoto 210mm WA Gyuto without handle, Ohh the possibilities!
This finally arrived in the mail today.
Blacksmith : Genkai Masakuni, Sharpener : Hakuhou
330mm Takohiki, white 1 Mizu honyaki.
360mm Yanagiba, white 1 Mizu honyaki, Fujiyaki.
Unfortunately these haven't got their final polish yet. But I'm still very happy with them!
That takohiki is stunning.
My latest buy is the Ikeda 240 gyuto honyaki
This looks pretty neat! I love the handle.
Thanks, its a beautiful handle made by Matus, the handle is made of checate preto and blond horn.
Couldn't capture the temper line properly under sunlight. The takohiki feels really good in hand too.
Really beautiful blade and handle.
If you don’t mind my asking, where did you get it?
Feel free to PM.
Wow. Both are stunning from Genkai
I'll show you what I bought when it comes in Thursday, but for now enjoy a little gift from my Sous
Anything y'all can tell me about it?
Those are trash, it's the thought that counts.
May I ask why? And it's heavily used, gave it to me for general whetstone practice, needs to be thinned behind the edge too
