    At first I wondered why anybody would dispose of a very nice Kurosaki Gyuto (see BST). Now I see the Yoshikane that took its place in your block and see why. A very yummy blade! Then again ... couldn’t you just have bought another block?

    Left side of the knife, the marbled horn is very nice

    Now that is a very sweet view ... make one want to slice something up! Don’t you have a bigger drawer? Where’s Ashy when you need inspiration?

    why dont you have them on a magnetic holder on display?? seems like a waste hiding them in that drawer imo.

    They are safe hiding in their drawer. I have 2 cats and 2 teenagers.

    New Dalman 210 Honyaki with a mirror finish. Heavier than I expected but it feels fantastic. I have a feeling it will permanently replace all other 210s for me.

    Another new buy off of BST I can’t help myself :/. Been wanting a smaller guyoto for a long time and couldn’t pass this up. Thanks to thebradleycrew for hooking this one up.

    Caudle cutlery K-Tip Gyuto. White #2, 227mm. New to me curtesy of Pensacola Tiger. Wonderful knife. Perfect for my big hand. First job up ... kernelling 1o cobs of freshly picked sweet corn to make corn and lobster chowder. Needless to say this knife made a “sweet job” of the task. Don’t ever look for this blade to appear again on BST ... it’s a keeper. Don’t you love that saya?

    Actually I would never use my knife to stir food ... I like eating off the tip of them and I’m picking up a mouthful of sweet corn to eat in the pic. It’s especially fun doing that with my xlge Takeda Chinese clever. .... Yum!

    Recently, I picked up an old batch KS that needed a little love. I sent it to Dave Martell who thinned and refinished the blade. He did an absolutely incredible job (thanks Dave!). I don't think this knife ever looked this good.

    I’m curious how it compares to that other KS you have arriving.

    I have two - this one is old batch and the other is very recent. The difference in the blades is very significant. The blade on the old one is much more substantial with virtually no taper, it's thicker overall, and the balance point is a little forward of a pinch grip. The new one is thinner, has a distal taper and feels much lighter. The balance point is more towards the heel. It's a much more agile feeling knife. They are completely different from one another. I'm a really big fan of the KS - both great IMO, but very different.

    I’ve slowed down on knife purchases, but I pretty much forced a good buddy to sell this to me as soon as I found out that he had it. I’ve been wanting one for the longest time so I definitely owe my buddy a big favor for passing this one off to me. Measures 272x55
