Cuts nice and the handle is unreal!
Not from personal experience-
But Z-knife reviewed them twice, once possibly a counterfeit set, then one he thought probably was the real deal.
Long story short, they were more about looking cool than performance. The counterfeit ones were not even made of a functional knife steel. The real one was slightly better than that, but not remarkable compared to a workmanlike example of a J knife.
Watanabe Pro Nakiri 180mm.
Tanaka Blue 2 Kurouchi Gyuto 180mm from Knives and stones
Ahhhh ok, I can see where the looks bs functionality argument comes in. and thanks for the link. I can do some reading on my train ride to school
Tanaka r2 western gyuto, ironwood handle 240mm (233*51), 223g
That's very pretty!
Looks very similar to some of Takeshi Saji's knives. I wonder whether those two had a shared teacher or otherwise shared history? Both are at Takefu, I believe?
Very smart way to do with the pin. Did you do it yourself?
I didn’t, it came that way second hand so I don’t know the history on it.
I’ve always wondered why takeshi doesn’t get more love. Never used one. But he seems like one of the leaders in the stainless bling knife genre.
Kippington, asymmetrical lefty, 52100, 228x53, work pony gyuto. Handle is Tas blackwood, brass, g10. Love it.
That's very nice, I very much like Kip's creations.
Please take this is a sign of respect, but I hate you for having this knife as I do not have it myself.
Kippinton’s work is really amazing as usual!
That Rader is pretty dang sweet... great pic too!
Don’t drop it on your feet
No disrespect taken, flattered. Seamless and enjoyable process working with Kip, that guy's very talented. This was my first custom, the knife rocks, looks very different now—the other night I challenged the Kip to a pineapple, Kip won, and got a good patina going in the process, no chips from the tough skin and crown of the pineapple. I was a little nervous ordering my inaugural custom—probably the most reasonably custom out there considering the quality—after procrastinating, told myself to just commit and go for it. Fascinating working on profile, specs, amount of belly, etc. Fun choosing handle materials.
I requested the knife to be a little heavier than his work pony, it's nimble but with a nice amount of heft.
Here's what it looks like now with patina. Better to me since I'm not fond of knives that're too shiny, this is a working knife in my rotation.
Nenox 240mm deba. Solid steel Honyaki.
One of the most beautiful Deba Honyaki I’ve ever seen
My Shirou Kamo petty came in today )
Got to give a choil shot of the work pony!
I already asked for it. Saved it on my phone. Haha.
Here’s the Ditmas Kippington
Duaaang, that looks nice!
Tadamori nakiri. Second hand.
Ao Iri Yanagiba, 270. Second hand.
250 and 190 by Jonas Johnsson, @Isasmedjan on IG.
Both are wrought clad 1.2519
I picked up the 190 a few months ago, the 250 arrived a few days ago.
This does NOT suck
There's a new monster in my house:
Shinko Kurokumo R2 Damascus 270mm ... actual: 280mm x 58mm x 2.6mm
Next to the family:
That looks really nice! Would love a report on how it performs.
