    Some recent highlights and a family shot...
    Fujiwara Denko 180mm & 210mm Gyuto's
    Toku Atsurai Kiku 120mm Petty
    Toku Atsurai Hanma 240mm Gyuto

    Someone on this thread said it recently - The Nakiri was the "unnecessary" one that kicks you off the slippery slope that is many a kitchen knife. :)

    Mercer Chinese cleaver, cheap but effective. $20 from Amazon. Came quite sharp.

    My knife storage is now known as "the black bloc".

    Nothing fancy, just a Munetoshi Petty, but I’m impressed how nice it looks with a proper handle:

    Nice! Did you install the handle yourself?

    Me: “maybe I should get a nakiri...”

    Also me: “good idea! it seems like it would suit your cooking needs and cutting style quite well!”

    Me: “which one should I get?”

    Also me: “well, since it’s your first one, maybe something moderately priced. try checking out the usual vendors. it’s too bad you missed the munetoshi that was on bst recently.”

    Me: “yea, true. that’s good advice!”

    Thanks to @thebradleycrew for the great transaction.

    Yes I did. I deliberately used epoxy to increase the weight a bit in order to move the center of mass a little towards the handle. Worked out really nice, now I can hardly feel the weight of the knife when using a pinch grip.

    This has to be the find of the century!

    Tatsuo clad knives are actually very very very nice.

    Congrats!

    My first set of knife upgrades after finding this site. Modest compared to a lot of the knives in this thread, but a joy to use. Jon from Japanese Knife Imports spent a lot of time emailing and giving advice, and I have to say his customer service blew me out of the water, well over expectations. Thanks to everyone on this site that gave me advice as well! Acquisitions are as follows:
    • Gesshin Stainless 210mm Wa-Gyuto
    • Gesshin Kagero 135mm powdered steel Petty
    • BoardSmith 2" x 12" x 18" Maple chopping board

    Daniel Cauble of Caublestone Cutlery is one hell of a knifemaker. 1095 core steel, ironwood, titanium and maple handle. Good HT and has a nice hard feel on the stones. Absolute beast of a cutter:
